Roger Ailes, the former CEO of Fox News, died Thursday morning at 77, the Drudge Report announced.

Drudge Report released a statement from his wife Elizabeth Ailes: “I am profoundly sad and heartbroken to report that my husband, Roger Ailes, passed away this morning. 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.”

Ailes left Fox News in July 2016 amid sexual harassment allegations. He had led the network for 20 years.
