TheBlaze’s Mike Opelka dropped by Thursday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” to discuss the latest headlines, including the breaking news that former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes is dead.

Mike and Doc Thompson discovered the shocking news while on air. Drudge Report broke the story with this statement from his wife, Elizabeth Ailes:

“I am profoundly sad and heartbroken to report that my husband, Roger Ailes, passed away this morning. Roger was a loving husband to me, to his son Zachary, and a loyal friend to many. He was also a patriot, profoundly grateful to live in a country that gave him so much opportunity to work hard, to rise—and to give back. During a career that stretched over more than five decades, his work in entertainment, in politics, and in news affected the lives of many millions. And so even as we mourn his death, we celebrate his life...”

To see more from Doc, visit his channel on TheBlaze and listen live to “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” weekdays 6–9 a.m. ET, only on TheBlaze Radio Network.
