The highly anticipated book, “The Loudest Voice in the Room” by Gabriel Sherman, was previewed Tuesday in the New York Times.

Sherman quoted a former producer who worked under Ailes back in the 1980s.

In one anecdote, a television producer, Randi Harrison, told Mr. Sherman that while negotiating her salary with Mr. Ailes at NBC in the 1980s, he offered her an additional $100 each week “if you agree to have sex with me whenever I want.”

A Fox News spokesman told the Times that the "charges are false," but said "we have not read the book."

Sherman's book is slated to be released on Jan. 21.
