The network issued a statement that Lewis was terminated for alleged breach of his employment contract and over purported issues involving "financial irregularities." Lewis kept a watchful eye over public relations matters involving Fox News, Fox Business Network, 20th Television and Fox Television Stations, according to the THR article.
Lewis fostered a close relationship with Ailes and was considered his (far?) right-hand man. He joined Fox in 1996 as vice president of public relations and most recently, acted as a liason to author Zev Chafets, who recently completed a flattering biography of Ailes, Roger Ailes: Off Camera.
