Fox News host Megyn Kelly has accused network CEO Roger Ailes of making unwanted sexual advances toward her about 10 years ago when she was a Fox correspondent, New York magazine reported Tuesday.

The magazine cited two anonymous sources who were briefed on parent company 21st Century Fox’s outside investigation of the 76-year-old executive, led by New York–based law firm Paul, Weiss.

New York magazine reported Monday that Rupert Murdoch and his two sons decided to remove Mr. Ailes as CEO following a sexual harassment lawsuit by former anchor Gretchen Carlson.

Sources said lawyers for 21st Century Fox on Monday gave Mr. Ailes a deadline of Aug. 1 to resign or face being fired. Mr. Ailes‘ legal team has yet to respond to the offer, New York magazine reported.

Ms. Kelly is currently in contract negotiations with Fox News.
