Footage of a local Fox News reporter claiming live on air that the network has been "muzzling" her has been viewed more than 2 million times, as she prepares to do an interview sharing her story.

Ivory Hecker, a reporter for Houston Fox 26 in Texas, announced during what was supposed to be a live segment about a heatwave that she will share on Tuesday secret recordings from within the network via the right-wing activist group Project Veritas.

"I want to let you, the viewers, know that Fox Corp has been muzzling me to keep certain information from you, the viewers," Hecker said live on air on Monday.

"And from what I'm gathering I am not the only reporter being subjected to this. I am going to be releasing some recordings about what goes on behind the scenes at Fox because it applies to you, the viewers.
