Report: Shine got $15M from Fox before joining White House
Bill Shine made more than $15 million in severance and bonuses from Fox News before taking a role at the White House as its top communication official, according to a report from CNBC.
The revelations came from a financial disclosure report showing he made $8.4 million in severance and is due bonuses for 2018 and 2019 that are valued at about $3.5 million a year, according to CNBC, which obtained a copy of the form.
A veteran executive at Fox, Shine left in 2017 amid a scandal at the news organization over a string of sexual harassment complaints against former Fox chairman Roger Ailes. Shine has denied helping cover up complaints.
