    James Rosen, Fox News' chief Washington correspondent, left the network at the end of the year, and NPR is reporting that several of his colleagues made sexual harassment allegations against him, according to NBC News.

    Rosen made "overt physical and sexual overtures" to three of his colleagues, including grabbing a woman's breast in a taxi in 2001 and then trying to take her sources, according to the NPR report, based on interviews with eight of Rosen's Fox News colleagues.

    NBC News attempted to contact Rosen, who has covered the White House and State Department, and he declined to comment to NPR. Fox News did not immediately respond to NBC News' request for comment.

    On Jan. 2, Rosen tweeted, "I appreciate all the good wishes you have sent to me and I hope to bring you news about my future endeavors soon."
