Fox Business’ Charles Payne, host of “Making Money,” is reportedly returning to the network after being cleared in a sexual harassment investigation.

Howard Kurtz, who hosts “Media Buzz” on Fox News, tweeted Friday that Payne is returning to host “Making Money” and has been cleared of wrongdoing in the investigation. Fox, however, has not commented on Payne’s return.

Payne was suspended from the network in July after Scottie Nell Hughes, a frequent guest, accused him of coercing her into a sexual relationship. She says her appearances on the network declined after she broke off the relationship, something Payne warned her might happen. (RELATED: Fox Host Charles Payne Suspended After Sexual Harassment Accusation) 

Payne admitted to a three-year consensual affair with Hughes, but denied any sort of sexual harassment. (RELATED: Coconut-Flavored ‘Female Predator’ Causes FOX’s Payne Pain)
