The AP does not name people who report being sexually assaulted unless they agree to be identified or come forward publicly.

A former Marine turned TV journalist, Greg Kelly appeared on local stations in New York and Binghamton, N.Y., before joining Fox News in 2002. He covered the Iraq war, including four assignments in Baghdad, and was the White House correspondent from 2005-2007, according to his biography on WNYW’s website. In 2007, the television show “Extra” identified him as the most eligible anchorman on TV.

He has appeared since 2008 on “Good Day New York,” taking time off since the allegations surfaced Jan. 25.

One of his most recent guests before his leave was Vance, discussing the problem of elder abuse and fielding some questions from Kelly about the Strauss-Kahn case.
