Reports indicate patriarch Rupert Murdoch intially supported keeping his cash cow, but one of his sons successfully pushed for O'Reilly to get the ax.
The letter concluded with an apparent nod to morale problems within Fox News recently.
Viewers of Fox News are taking to social media to express outrage over the announced ouster of their most popular host.
Up to four million viewers watched "The O'Reilly Factor" each evening, making it the most-watched cable TV program in 2016 and generating $446 million in ad revenues for Fox between 2014 and a year ago, according to a study carried out by Kantar Media. And since those allegations are in the spotlight, GLAAD wanted to bring some of O'Reilly's other moments to the forefront.
Network officials have announced that "The O'Reilly Factor" will not be returning, at least not on Fox.
According to Kurtz, beginning this Monday, Tucker Carlson's show will move from 9 p.m. "I think it is more like the platform being the kind of engine that drives the creation of that personality". His trip came as Fox News Channel's parent company 21st Century Fox is investigating sexual harassment allegations against him. Even if there's some disruption in ad rates or spots, he said, there's a "massive backstop" in those payments, which are long-term deals.
But in the end 21 Century Fox needed to clean house and they did what they had to do. It's now trying again, although a United Kingdom media regulator must certify that the combined company would be a "fit and proper" owner of the broadcaster.

Jemerson , Djibril Sidibe , Thomas Lemar , Radamel Falcao and Valère Germain are one booking away from suspension. Dortmund could only try to force themselves back into the match . "Maybe Marco can play for us from the start".
O'Reilly's pugnacious personality wasn't just an onscreen affectation, with one of the settlements going to a woman who complained about being shouted at in the newsroom. Such allegations drove Roger Ailes from the company.
The statement from 21st Century Fox said the decision to part ways came after "an extensive review done in collaboration with outside counsel".
As we said earlier, the biggest concern that we have here is why it took the New York Times reporting on alleged settlements to make any major movement happen in regards to O'Reilly's status.
In a Wednesday memo to employees signed by all three Murdochs and provided to The Associated Press, Fox again emphasized its commitment to a workplace culture of "trust and respect". At the time, O'Reilly said he planned to return to the program on April 24.
That multiplying effect gave O'Reilly a role in a seismic change, he said.
But, when former anchor Megyn Kelly left the network, her replacement Carlson actually increased the ratings for that time slot, DiClemente said.
