Last week, Eric Bolling from Fox News was suspended after accusations of sending inappropriate photos of himself to female colleagues.
Now, the network is reportedly in final talks with his replacement, and who it is may come as a surprise to you.
Daily Mail reported that conservative commentator Laura Ingraham is in final talks to host her own show on Fox News as a replacement for Bolling. Matt Drudge was the first to reveal this on Twitter on Monday.
“FALL PREVIEW: Laura Ingraham’s prime time to shine! After years in the trenches, much deserved,” Drudge wrote.

This comes after footage emerged of Bolling referring to Caroline Heldman, one of his accusers, as “Dr. McHottie” on his Fox News show.
Heldman said the harassment got worse after the interview.
“[Bolling] said he wanted to fly me out to New York for in-studio hits and to have ‘fun.’ He asked me to have meals with him on several occasions, but I found excuses not to go,” Heldman wrote in a lengthy Facebook post. “Once, he took me up to his office in New York, showed me his baseball jerseys, and in the brief time I was there, let me know that his office was his favorite place to have sex.”
“My only surprise is that it took this long for people to come forward about Bolling’s behavior, which has been wildly inappropriate for years,” Heldman continued.
This has come as bad news to Bolling’s fans, as many were hoping he would bounce back from this. With Ingraham preparing to replace him, however, it seems that Bolling’s days at Fox really are over. Do you think Ingraham will make a good replacement for him? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
