Rotating substitute hosts will fill in for Bolling on The Specialists, which he co-hosted.

A Fox News statement from a spokesperson has announced: "Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is now underway".

The allegations follow a series of sexual harassment scandals involving senior Fox News executives and on-air stars.

Fox News Specialists host Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is now underway, Fox News confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

When contacted by HuffPo, Bolling's attorney said the "Fox News Specialist" host will defend himself against the "defamatory accusations".

The image was sent several years ago on separate occasions in text messages to two colleagues at Fox Business and another at Fox News from a phone number they recognized from previous exchanges with the host, the report said.

Bolling once referred to former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) as a "sick human being" for sending sexual text messages to an underage girl in 2014, and in 2015 got into a Twitter fight with Weiner over the former congressman's accidentally-posted underwear photos on Twitter.

Philander fit to bat for South Africa
South Africa paceman Vernon Philander has been taken to hospital after spending most of the second day's play in the third Test off the field.

While one of the recipients told The Huffington Post that she asked him "to never send those types of photos" to her again, he did not respond nor confirm he would.

The three women in question all independently confirmed the accusations to HuffPost (who is withholding their identities), four others confirmed to HuffPost that they'd seen the offending messages and an additional eight confirmed that they'd heard about the messages. This latest accusation arrives on the heels of the late Roger Ailes' resignation from the company after Gretchen Carlson's sexual harassment suit against him, as well as Bill O'Reilly's ouster after The New York Times reported that he'd settled several sexual harassment lawsuits.

Fox News has suspended host Eric Bolling pending the results of its investigation he sent lewd photos to three female colleagues. Since Ailes was forced out, multiple former and current Fox News hosts have accused him of harassment, including CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota.

O'Reilly was ousted from the network in April after it was revealed FOX had paid almost $13 million to women who had accused him of sexual harassment over the years.

Fox News did not comment aside from promising to investigate the situation.

It's not the first time Bolling has been embroiled in controversy.

The allegations against Bolling recall statements he made attacking Anthony Weiner in 2014, after the former NY congressman had been embroiled in a scandal for sexting several women. Let's whack the Fox News Channel.
