During this period Bill OReilly won two local Emmy Awards for his news coverage: one in Denver for his coverage of a skyjacking, and one in New York for his investigation of corrupt city marshals. Additionally, he also worked as a correspondent for CBS News in 1982.

After O’Reilly delivered a eulogy in 1986 for his friend Joe Spencer, an ABC News correspondent who died in a helicopter crash while covering a story, ABC News president Roone Arledge was impressed by his speaking at the funeral and decided to hire him.

While at ABC, O’Reilly hosted daytime news briefs previewing stories that were to be reported on the program World News Tonight and was also a general assignment reporter for programs such as Good Morning America and Nightline.

He moved on to join the nationally syndicated show Inside Edition in 1989, which was produced by King World back then and produced by CBS Television Distribution now. He quickly became the program’s anchor, a mere three weeks later, after original anchor David Frost left the show.

Bill OReilly was hired in October 1996 to anchor his own show on Fox, The O’Reilly Report, later renamed The O’Reilly Factor. The show enjoyed great popularity and is credited with beginning the trend of more opinion-oriented prime-time cable news programming.

However, Bill OReilly and his show were often accused of distorting facts and using misleading statistics in his reporting. Additionally, O’Reilly hosted the radio show The Radio Factor from 2002 to 2009 and returned to radio in 2019 with a daily 15-minute series, The O’Reilly Update.

Firing from Fox: 

In April 2017, the New York Timesreported how Bill O’Reilly and Fox paid $50 million to settle various sexual harassment lawsuits brought against the anchor. One settlement alone was for $9 million.

The controversy caused a firestorm of criticism which eventually led to his firing from the network. A few months after Bill OReilly dismissal, an another report revealed yet another settlement in the amount of $32 million, allegedly paid to one woman. This is a total of $82 million in alleged payoffs. This final allegation also caused Bill OReilly to be dropped by his agents at the United Talent Agency.

Bill OReilly was replaced by Tucker Carlson in 2018 slowly grew to a point where his average viewership consistently meets or beats Bill OReilly former best numbers. Tucker is paid a fraction of Bill’s former salary, which was reported to be $25 million a year. O’Reilly also reportedly received a $25 million settlement from Fox when he was fired, the equivalent of one year’s salary.
