According to a Fox press release, “Throughout Scott’s Fox tenure, she has risen through the ranks in a number of programming, production and creative positions including: executive vice president of programming (2016); senior vice president of programming and development (2009); vice president of programming (2007); network executive producer (2005); as well as associate producer, producer and senior producer of On the Record with Greta Van Susteren (2002-2005).

After former CEO Roger Ailes resigned in 2016, Suzanne Scott, Jack Abernathy and Jay Wallace are credited with “turning Fox News around” after the Ailes scandal. In that time, Scott worked as the president of programming, overseeing Fox’s opinion shows including “Hannity” and “Fox & Friends.”

This decision has been met with some media backlash due to Scott’s alleged complicity in several sexual harassment suits within the company.
