And according to a new report, the exit was related to alleged sexual misconduct.
“According to Rosen’s former colleagues, however, he had an established pattern of flirting aggressively with many peers and had made sexual advances toward three female Fox News journalists, including two reporters and a producer. And his departure followed increased scrutiny of his behavior at the network, according to colleagues.”
The alleged incidents happened in the early 2000s and last year.
One incident was during a shared cab ride back from a meal in 2001. Rosen allegely groped her. After, Rosen sought to steal away her sources, according to the report.
Another was in spring of last year, when Rosen tried to kiss a female reporter in an elevator.
He’s been with Fox News since 1999 and is one of the main reporters out of the Washington bureau.
Rosen came into prominence in 2013 when the Obama Administration classified him as a “criminal co-conspirator” under the Espionage Act for his reporting on the State Department.
