According to reports, former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly may make a radio comeback.
He is currently in contract negotiations with a New York-based radio station.
The network, 77 WABC, is owned by Trump supporter John Catsimatidis.
If the contract is finalized, Bill O’Reilly will debut his radio show sometime this fall.
“We are in the final stages of a contract and a program should be on in the fall,” Newman told CNBC through his assistant. O’Reilly’s representative also confirmed the talks were being held with 77 WABC. Catsimatidis confirmed the ongoing negotiations to CNBC.
“I wll confirm that, and I think he is one common-sense American,” Catsimatidis said of O’Reilly. He declined to comment further.
This won’t be Bill O’Reilly’s first time hosting a radio show. From 2002 to 2009, O’Reilly hosted a show titled The Radio Factor which aired from noon to 3 pm Eastern Monday through Friday. It was the second-highest rated show behind the king of talk Rush Limbaugh.
In 2017, Bill O’Reilly’s tenure at Fox News ended when the New York Times revealed he paid close to $50 million dollars to multiple women to settle sexual harassment claims.
He eventually made his return to television earlier this year:
The show titled, “No Spin News” will air twice daily at 8 and 11 pm. Sound familiar?
According to Axios, the show will air on a conservative digital TV network called “The First”.
