Fox News Channel has fired "America's Newsroom" anchor Ed Henry following a workplace investigation into a sexual misconduct allegation.

Variety reports that Henry was terminated after the network received a complaint from a former employee on June 25 concerning "willful sexual misconduct" by Henry years earlier. 

Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott and President Jay Wallace said in a statement, "Ed was suspended the same day and removed from his on-air responsibilities pending investigation. Based on investigative findings, Ed has been terminated."

Catherine Foti, Henry's attorney, says the longtime anchor denies the allegations and "is confident that he will be vindicated after a full hearing in an appropriate forum."
