As Fox News begins to limp into the post-Donald Trump era, the network has made a statement move concerning its future.
Top stars from the network have come and gone in recent months — but one thing isn’t changing.
And longtime fans may not be happy.

CEO Suzanne Scott is staying as top boss of the cable news network for the long-haul after signing a multi-year deal, according to Mediaite.
Scott helped navigate the network after the November election and moving into 2021 — but ratings have plummeted.
Scott had to deal with the fallout of the controversial decision to call Arizona for President Joe Biden early, a major ratings crash in the month of January, a monumental amount of staff shakeups, and election-based lawsuits.
If the recent past was any indication of the turmoil the network had faced, you can bet that Scott has her work cut out for her moving forward.
“I am grateful to Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch for the opportunity to continue leading FOX News Media and positioning all of our platforms for future success,” she said in a statement made official.
Fox Corporation Chief Lachlan Murdoch offered words of praise for Scott, noting that “Suzanne’s stellar leadership and business acumen is evident across FOX News Media.”

“Her investments in the people and purpose of FOX News have enabled us to shatter ratings records, build a leading multi-platform news brand and create a more collaborative and inclusive internal culture. Suzanne’s track record of success, innovative spirit and dedication to excellence make her the ideal person to continue to lead and grow FOX News.”
The statement hire comes as Fox enters critical make or break years post-Trump, and as for Scott, consider it a vote of confidence.
All eyes will be on her in her quest to keep conservative audiences in a media world still adjusting to life without Trump.
