Fox News forced out one of its most senior executives on Monday, the latest aftershock of a sexual harassment scandal that has engulfed the television network and pressured its owners, the Murdoch family, into a painful and protracted public housecleaning.

.

The exit of Bill Shine  a co-president at the network and a close ally of Roger E. Ailes, its former chairman  came nearly 10 months after Mr. Ailes was removed in the wake of numerous harassment allegations. Mr. Shines departure could portend big changes as the Murdochs move to retool a lucrative channel that has threatened to become an obstacle to their global business ambitions.

.

Mr. Shines exit did little to quell a newsroom in tumult, however. Even as Mr. Shine was removed, another veteran executive with deep ties to Mr. Ailes, Suzanne Scott, was promoted. Ms. Scott, who is now the president of programming, has been cited in lawsuits against the network as a figure who enabled and concealed Mr. Ailess behavior.

.

Mr. Shine had been viewed by some employees as a symbol of Mr. Ailess tainted tenure amid a public pledge by the networks corporate parent, 21st Century Fox, to reform its office culture. He was accused in several lawsuits of covering up Mr. Ailess behavior and dismissing concerns from women who complained about it. Mr. Shine and Ms. Scott deny any wrongdoing.

.

Seen by the Murdochs as a steward rather than a visionary  Rupert Murdoch, in a meeting with executives, once referred to him as a fine company man Mr. Shine was not considered a long-term leader for the network, despite his close relationships with marquee personalities like Sean Hannity.

.

But Mr. Shines standing weakened in recent weeks as his name surfaced in new lawsuits against the channel and some advocacy groups called for his firing. Inside Fox News, Mr. Shine also advocated keeping Bill OReilly, even after The New York Times reported that Mr. OReilly, a popular prime-time host, had entered into multimillion-dollar settlements with women who had accused him of harassment. Mr. OReilly was fired almost two weeks ago.

.

The string of major departures  at a network that for two decades had had little to no change in its senior ranks  has unsettled Fox Newss employees, from its prime-time stars to its rank-and-file staff. Mr. Hannity, who had recommended Mr. Shine for his first position at Fox News, said on Twitter last week that Mr. Shines removal would be the total end of the FNC as we know it.

Mr. Murdoch, Fox Newss executive chairman, is facing pressure on multiple fronts, not least his own corporate aspirations. He is on the verge of acquiring a long-coveted prize, the British satellite and television company Sky, for his European media empire.

.

But the deal must be approved by a British regulatory agency that will determine if 21st Century Fox can act as a fit and proper owner. The last time that Mr. Murdoch faced a major public outcry  during the hacking scandal at his British tabloid News of the World  he was stymied by regulators, who rejected an attempt to acquire Sky.

.

The Murdochs are definitely cleaning house, said Andrew Gilman, the chief executive of the crisis communications firm CommCore Consulting Group.

.

Referring to Mr. Murdochs sons, Lachlan and James, who run 21st Century Fox, Mr. Gilman added, It sounds like the younger Murdochs are saying, Were willing to sacrifice some revenue and talent for a longer-term view.
