Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly told investigators she was sexually harassed by CEO Roger Ailes, the Daily Intelligencer reports, less than two weeks after Gretchen Carlson made similar allegations against him.
Sources told CNBC that Fox is nearing on decision on Ailes' future at the company. The decision is likely to result in his departure, sources said. In a tweet late Tuesday, 21st Century Fox said that Ailes is still employed and that his review is ongoing.
Two sources told the New York Magazine publication that Kelly told a team handling an outside investigation into Ailes' behavior that she, too, was the victim of sexual advances from the Fox News executive about a decade ago. The probe is being handled by New York-based law firm Paul, Weiss, Kelly, on behalf of Fox News' parent company 21st Century Fox.
Fox News, which has handled Ailes' communications, did not respond to a CNBC request for comment, and 21st Century Fox declined to comment. Kelly's representatives did not respond to a request for comment.
Daily Intelligencer, citing sources, previously reported that 21st Century Fox co-Chairmen Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch and CEO James Murdoch had decide to fire Ailes in light of the allegations. James had allegedly wanted Ailes to be let go this week, while the other Murdochs were leaning toward ousting the executive after the GOP convention.
Kelly, who hosts "The Kelly File," is one of Fox News' best known journalists. She was co-moderator of the first GOP debate in August, during which Donald Trump accused her of being biased. The two sat down for a highly publicized interview on May 17.
She previously hosted "America Live" as well as co-hosted "America's Newsroom" with Bill Hemmer.
Earlier this month, Carlson filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Ailes, alleging she was fired from Fox News on June 23 because she refused to have a sexual relationship with Ailes.
