Longtime Fox News host Eric Bolling allegedly sent an unsolicited photo of male genitalia via text message to current and former female co-workers several years ago, according to a new report.

Two of the women who claimed to have received the photo worked with Bolling at Fox Business Network, while a third woman works at Fox News, Huffington Post reported. 

The women all claim they did not solicit the messages and that they knew the message was from Bolling, who has been married to his wife since 1997, because they recognized the phone number from previous informal and work-related interactions.

Huffington Post reported that the messages were sent several years ago on separate occasions. 

After receiving the messages reportedly from Bolling, the women told their colleagues that they were deeply offended and upset.   

One of the women replied to the 54-year-old anchor instructing him to never send her photos of male genitalia ever again; he reportedly did not respond. 

A dozen sources told Huffington Post that at least two of Bolling's female colleagues at Fox Business and one at Fox News received the photos of male genitalia from Bolling. 

The father-of-one co-hosts the Fox News show Specialists and hosts Cashin' In. He previously served as one of five anchors on the network's show, The Five.

Prior to joining the network in 2008, Bolling worked at CNBC and was a former commodities trader. 

In the past year, the network has faced numerous accusations of sexual harassment and assault by Fox Business and Fox News on-air talent and executives.

Former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes resigned last year after ex-Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson filed a lawsuit accusing him of sexual harassment. 

Numerous current and former Fox News hosts have accused Ailes of harassment since he was forced out of the company. 

In regards to the accusations against Bolling, a Fox spokesperson said the company was 'just informed of this and plan to investigate the matter,' Huffington Post reported. 

Bolling's attorney, Michael J. Bowe, said: 'Mr. Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications, does not believe he sent any such communications, and will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made.'
