His reporting on US intelligence about North Korea prompted the Justice Department to conduct an investigation into his sources during President Barack Obama's second term, a move that was widely denounced by First Amendment advocates.

The network cited no reason for Rosen's exit and did not announce it on the air.

But according to a report in NPR, Rosen left amid "scrutiny of his behavior at the network".

The Hill has reached out to Fox News and Rosen for comment.

On Jan. 2, Rosen tweeted, "I appreciate all the good wishes you have sent to me and I hope to bring you news about my future endeavors soon". "There's been nothing else since then".

He added that the attention "was largely political because we are conservative".

The sheriff's deputy wrote that an unspecified "reasonable, articulable suspicion was obtained that criminal activity was afoot". Patrick Jiron was driving then, and authorities stopped him for going over the center line and failing to signal.

Several high-profile broadcasters on the cable news channel, however, have faced sexual harassment allegations. Bill O'Reilly, one of the network's most famous hosts, left in spring 2017 after reports that millions of dollars in settlements were paid out to people complaining of sexual harassment by O'Reilly.

Rupert Murdoch, the co-executive chairman of 21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News, said in an interview with Sky News in December that it was "nonsense" that the misconduct allegations had hurt the network's business.

The network also parted ways with another host, Eric Bolling, after misconduct accusations. Bolling has since filed a $50-million lawsuit against the reporter who broke the initial story.

"In the winter following the September 2001 terrorist attacks, a female Fox News reporter joined the bureau from NY". When she rebuffed him, Rosen allegedly "sought to steal away her sources and stories", NPR reported.

A female producer also accused Rosen of sexual harassment, and a female journalist also alleged Rosen tried to forcibly kiss her in an elevator after she refused his first advances.

Rosen has covered the White House and State Department for Fox News, and The Washington Post reported that the Justice Department had ordered an investigation of him after his reports on classified information related to North Korea.
