Fox News Chief White House correspondent Ed Henry is off the air for the time being after a magazine report that he has had an affair with a “Las Vegas hostess.” 

“We recently became aware of Ed’s personal issues, and he’s taking some time off to work things out,” a Fox News spokesperson said.

In the In Touch article, Natalia Lima said she met the married Henry five years ago as he was covering the presidential election cycle and that their friendship turned into a sexual relationship last spring. TV network news operations tend to have morality clauses in their contracts with on-air talent.

Henry has been with Fox News since 2011, after working at CNN as White House correspondent.
