Melissa Francis

Fox News has reportedly paid a roughly $15 million settlement to former host Melissa Francis, who filed a complaint with New York state’s labor board accusing the media company of paying her less than her male colleagues.

The Washington Post reported that Fox News agreed to the settlement, citing documents the newspaper had obtained and reviewed.

The news network, in a statement to The Hill, said it has “undergone a comprehensive overhaul of its entire workplace culture,” including in areas that promoted women.

“We parted ways with Melissa Francis over a year and a half ago and her allegations were entirely without merit. We have also fully cooperated with the New York State Department of Labor’s investigation and look forward to the completion of this matter,” the statement read.
