Bill O’Reilly received the worst news, career-wise, a month ago after a string of sexual harassment accusations against him surfaced. Now, it looks that he is already back in the game and in a big way to say the least.
New York Daily News informed that O’Reilly is currently on demand by numerous conservative media outlets who wish to become a potential match for Fox News.
“Bill O’Reilly has been nothing short of a powerhouse in cable news. We have received thousands of requests to add Mr. O’Reilly to our team,” stated Charles Herring, CEO of San Diego-based One America Network. “I’m sure several national cable news networks have expressed strong interest in Mr. O’Reilly, and One America News is no exception, but we have no further comments at this time.”
Sources reveal that O’Reilly is also wanted by Sinclair, a massive right-leaning broadcaster that is the owner of 170 TV stations, which includes Chicago’s superstation WGN. Sinclair got himself a $3.9-million contract this month to purchase Tribune media and its 42 stations, and executives are attempting to turn WGN into a conservative all-news network that could actually compete with Fox.
