21st Century Fox (FOX), will hold a board meeting on Thursday, a spokeswoman told CNNMoney. One of the sources said O’Reilly will be a primary topic.
A well-placed source said Tuesday afternoon that representatives for Fox and O’Reilly have begun talking about an exit. But this prompted a denial from sources in O’Reilly’s camp.

The original well-placed source said an announcement about O’Reilly’s fate was likely by the end of the week.

The Murdochs, the men who control 21st Century Fox, are pointedly not commenting on any of this. Read more at CNN.
