福克斯新闻(Fox News)宣布,前福克斯新闻首席执行官和共同创办人罗杰·艾尔斯(Roger Ailes)逝世,终年77岁。

艾尔斯的妻子伊丽莎白星期四早晨公布了这一消息。

她的声明说:“我怀着深深的悲哀,痛心地报告,我的丈夫罗杰·艾尔斯在今晨与世长辞。”

声明还说:“他的职业生涯跨越五十余年,他在娱乐、政治和新闻领域的工作触及了千百万人的生活。我们在哀悼他的去世的同时,也在庆祝他的人生。”

艾尔斯掌管福克斯20年,不过去年,在针对他的性骚扰指称声中,艾尔斯被免去了职务。

福克斯电视台新闻主播们在宣读艾尔斯妻子的声明时,难以遏制内心的感情。

Fox News Co-Founder Ailes Dead at 77

Fox News CEO and Co-Founder Roger Ailes died Thursday morning at 77 years old, the news organization announced.

The network was informed of Ailes’s death by his wife Elizabeth. News anchors struggled to control their emotions as they read a statement written by Ailes’s wife.

“I am profoundly sad and heartbroken to report that my husband, Roger Ailes, passed away this morning,” the statement said.

“During a career that stretched over more than five decades, his work in entertainment, in politics, and in news affected the lives of many millions. And so even as we mourn his death, we celebrate his life,” the statement continued.

Ailes spent 20 years as the head of Fox, but he was removed last year amid claims of sexual harassment against him.
