Roger Ailes, the man who transformed television news and American politics in his role as founder of Fox News before being brought down by a sexual harassment scandal, died Thursday morning, the network announced. He had celebrated his 77th birthday three days earlier.

Ailes’ wife, Elizabeth, said in a statement that the family is “profoundly sad and heartbroken” following his death.

“Roger was my best friend, the most wonderful loving husband and father to our son Zachary,” Elizabeth Ailes said. “He was a loyal friend to so many. Roger was a patriot, grateful to live in a country that gave him so much opportunity to work hard, to rise — and to give back.”
