NEW YORK (AP) — Fox News executive chairman Rupert Murdoch issued a statement on the death of Roger Ailes, saying the media giant was "shocked and grieved" by his passing.

"A brilliant broadcaster, Roger played a huge role in shaping America's media over the last 30 years. He will be remembered by the many people on both sides of the camera that he discovered, nurtured and promoted," the statement read.

"Roger and I shared a big idea which he executed in a way no one else could have. In addition, Roger was a great patriot who never ceased fighting for his beliefs."
