Roger Ailes, the former chairman and CEO of Fox News, has died at the age of 77.

Ailes’ death comes less than a year after he resigned from the network he founded over allegations of sexual harassment.

His wife Elizabeth, with whom he has one 16-year-old son, broke the news on Thursday with a statement to Matt Drudge:

‘I am profoundly sad and heartbroken to report that my husband, Roger Ailes, passed away this morning. Roger was a loving husband to me, to his son Zachary, and a loyal friend to many.

‘He was also a patriot, profoundly grateful to live in a country that gave him so much opportunity to work hard, to rise – and to give back.

‘During a career that stretched over more than five decades, his work in entertainment, in politics, and in news affected the lives of many millions.

‘And so even as we mourn his death, we celebrate his life,’ the statement reads.

Sources tell TMZ that Ailes died after falling down and hitting his head at his Palm Beach, Florida home eight days ago.
