In a joint statement with Holder, Fox said 21st Century Fox “promptly investigated the matter and took decisive action, for which Ms. Holder thanks the network.”
Holder left the network when her contract expired at the end of the year. Fox said it is grateful to Holder for her contributions and wishes her continued success.
Fox would not comment on the amount of the settlement, which was reported in the Times.
Holder’s case comes after Fox News’ former top executive, Roger Ailes, left the network last summer following accusations he had made unwanted sexual advances against women. Ailes has denied the charges.
