Ailes, who had built Fox News into a dominant force over the past 15 years and served as a consult to three successful presidential campaigns in the 1970s and '80s, resigned from the network in July 2016 following allegations of sexual harassment.
 
“I am profoundly sad and heartbroken to report that my husband, Roger Ailes, passed away this morning,” Ailes's wife Elizabeth said in a statement Thursday morning. 
 
The Drudge Report was the first to report on the 77-year-old's passing.
