Roger Ailes Re-ups at Fox

Whatever the 'family drama' that may be going on behind the scenes at Fox, someone realizes it's much better to have Roger Ailes on your team, than not.

Ailes has signed a new long-term deal to continue to run the Fox News properties and continue as chairman of Fox Television Stations.

When Fox announced that James would take over for his Dad on July 1st as CEO and become co-chairman with Lachlan, it was reported that Ailes would only agree to report to Rupert.

In a quote to Broadcasting & Cable, Alies said, "I am grateful to Rupert Murdoch for taking the risk on Fox News to see it become the number one 24-hour news network in America, I look forward to working with Rupert, Lachlan and James to do my part to help bring 21st Century Fox well into the future."
