Darla Shine is the lovely wife of former TV executive, Bill Shine. The two have been married for years and share two children together.
Her hubby is the same guy who was accused of turning a blind eye to the newsroom’s culture of harassment, after he received major criticism over his handling of sexual harassment claims against former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes and star host Bill O’Reilly.
Shine eventually had to step down as the co-president of Fox News back in May.
Raised on Long Island, N.Y., the son of a New York City police officer, Bill Shine embarked on a job hunt after graduating from college in 1985, armed only with a communications degree from SUNY Oswego. Rejected from a low-level job at WLIG(TV), the only commercial station on Long Island, he wondered, “What if I start working for free?”
That philosophy landed him a job as a production assistant on the independent station’s magazine show and, eventually, a salary. Within a year, Shine was directing WLIG’s 10 p.m. newscast.
By 1995, cable TV came calling.Shine started at Fox News in 1996 as the producer of Hannity & Colmes, Fox News’ first primetime talk show at the time. Three years after that, he was the Fox News executive producer for primetime. He ventured away from the broadcasting portion of Fox News for a short while when he was the executive producer of an investigative news magazine for Fox News, The Pulse, from 2001 to 2003.
He was promoted a number of times before being named the senior executive vice president of programming in 2014.
