Fox News has a new CEO, Suzanne Scott, marking the first time a woman has run the cable news network.

Rupert Murdoch, who took charge after CEO Roger Ailes was forced out amid a sexual harassment scandal in 2016, will remain executive chairman of Fox News. Scott will report to both Rupert and his son Lachlan.

Jay Wallace is effectively Scott's No. 2. His new title is president of Fox News and executive editor.

For the past year, Scott has been the president of programming, meaning she had oversight of opinion shows like "Fox & Friends" and "Hannity." Wallace has been president of news, with oversight of shows like "Special Report."
