Fox News viewers were shocked recently when the network’s longtime most popular host Bill O’Reilly departed abruptly after getting ousted by 21st Century Fox CEO James Murdoch, who wants to take Fox News in a different direction.
Many people were left wondering if O’Reilly would ever return to television broadcasting in the future, or if they had seen the last of him on their screens. Fortunately, O’Reilly just indicated his new plan to return to television after all.
Since departing Fox News, O’Reilly has been focusing on his podcast on billoreilly.com. On his show, he said that he is going to do longer and longer shows until his podcast is a complete news show.
In his most recent episode, titled “O’Reilly Lays out Plans for the Future in Last Free Podcast,” he said that his site is moving to create a video news show and “maybe go into some other networks as well.” He added, “So, I hope you consider it and sign up because we will be here Monday through Thursday with our audio broadcast, and we are working on making it a video display.”
He continued, “We really appreciate you guys hanging with us the first week on the ‘No Spin News,’ it’s very nice of you to do that. We think we provide a unique perspective on the news, by the way, and as I said in the beginning of this broadcast, we’re going to expand it. So, we’re going to expand it. A lot of people interested, I’m taking my time. There’s a lot of things that I have to clear up, as I mentioned on Monday when I first came on the air. There’s a lot of things in play, and you’ll know what the deal is.” Are you glad O’Reilly is going to create a video show?
