Jamie Horowitz, the President of National Networks for Fox Sports has been fired amid an internal investigation by 21st Century Fox (FOXA), into claims of sexual harassment. Horowitz, who has run programming at Fox Sports since 20015, is the latest high ranking Fox executive (Ailes, O’Reilly) accused of inappropriate behavior with women. The move comes less than a week after Horowitz let go of 20 writing & editing staffers, as the company moves towards a focus on video.

Fan Marino says: Chris Sacca, Dave McClure and now Jamie Horowitz. Big week for the anti-creep movement.
