Suzanne Scott Career
According to a Fox News Channel press release, “Throughout her tenure at Fox News, Scott has risen through the ranks in a number of programming, production and creative positions including: executive vice president of programming (2016); senior vice president of programming and development (2009); vice president of programming (2007); network executive producer (2005); as well as associate producer, producer and senior producer of On the Record with Greta Van Susteren (2002-2005).
In addition, she was responsible for the launch of numerous on-air and digital initiatives, including the 2002 primetime debut of On the Record.”
After founder & former CEO Roger Ailes departed in 2016 before he died in 2017, Scott, Jay Wallace, and Jack Abernathy are credited with “turning Fox News around” after the scandal involving Ailes. In that time, Scott worked as the president of programming, overseeing Fox News Channel’s opinion shows including Fox & Friends, The Five and Hannity.
On May 17, 2018, Scott was named CEO of both Fox News and Fox Business Network. During this announcement, Lachlan Murdoch said Scott “has now made history as [Fox’s] first female CEO.” She was also the only woman in charge of a major TV news organization until Rashida Jones was installed as head of MSNBC.
This decision has been met with some media backlash due to Scott’s alleged complicity in several sexual harassment suits within the company. Scott was not a defendant in the suits, but was cited within them, and was involved in several internal complaints. She denies the accusations.
A 2017 article quoting numerous former Fox News Channel on-air talent & support staff alleged that the “…executive assistant-turned-Fox News vice president of programming Suzanne Scott enforces with the wardrobe and makeup departments an aesthetic that features skimpy dresses, high-heeled open-toed shoes, and big hair for the channel’s on-air women.”
Former anchor Ed Henry in a June 2021 lawsuit filing alleged Scott covered up an affair between the president of Fox News and a subordinate during her time helming the network.
