The Fox network has dismissed Charlie Walk from his position as a judge on “The Four” over a sexual-harassment claim.

Mr. Walk, a longtime record executive, was accused by Tristan Coopersmith of repeated groping and harassment during their years working together at Sony Music.

According to TMZMr. Walk will appear on this week’s episode of “The Four” because it was pre-taped. But he will record no more episodes of the singing contest.

Mr. Walk already had been suspended by Republic Records from his post as president. According to TMZ, it wasn’t clear whether Fox would add a fourth judge or change the show to “The Three.”

Mr. Walk denies any wrongdoing.

“There has never been a single HR claim against me at any time during my 25+ year career, spanning three major companies … this is the first time I have ever heard of this or any other allegation — and it is false,” he told Deadline, which first reported Ms. Coopersmith’s charges earlier this week.
