Bill O'Reilly Leaves Fox News, Tucker Carlson Takes His Slot

"Fox News should have fired him in 2004 when (former Fox News producer) Andrea Mackris spoke out, but at least they did it now", she said. Bill has been the undisputed king of cable news, and for good reason.

And he keeps echoing in the broader media landscape.

"About three weeks after appearing on his show, I received an email ... asking if I would after dinner with him", Dr Walsh said. The company is making "a pretty big statement" to that effect by dropping O'Reilly, said Hall, the American University professor.

Noting the "dramatic changes", Perino said: "It is the end of the era".

She told the Times that after she won a beat against O'Reilly and her promised to treat her to dinner, the host said that while she might want to "break his bank" on her meal choice he was more interested in breaking her back.

O'Reilly shot into the headlines earlier this month when the New York Times reported that he and Fox had paid five women a total of $13 million in cases spanning 15 years, in exchange for their silence and agreement not to sue.

But after the New York Times report, advertisers including BMW of North America, Allstate Corp, French pharmaceuticals maker Sanofi SA and T. Rowe Price, pulled their advertising from O'Reilly's primetime "The O'Reilly Factor" show.

O'Reilly's attorney said on Tuesday that the host was the target of a "smear campaign" funded by far-left advocacy groups.

"He was the voice for many conservatives in the United States", Binning said. It's the top-rated show on the No. 1 cable network - one that, according to the investment bank Nomura's estimates, accounts for fully 20 percent of profits at 21st Century Fox.

The announcement came just hours after the combative and right-wing television personality was photographed shaking hands with Pope Francis in St Peters Square on holiday in Rome.

"But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today", he said in a statement of the "tremendously disheartening" news.

O'Reilly's exit, which was first reported by NY magazine, follows that of former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes, who was forced to resign in July after being accused of sexual misconduct by a number of women, including former anchor Gretchen Carlson. He pushed a populist, conservative-leaning point of view born from growing up on Long Island, and was quick to shout down those who disagreed with him.

Don't expect O'Reilly to slip quietly away, said Annenberg's Hollihan. "There was no one who was willing to say to him, 'Hey you can't treat one of our political analysts this way'".

But Fox was mostly silent. He has also had best-sellers with everything from the memoir "A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity" to his most recent work, "Old School", which includes passages urging the respectful treatment of women. "Personally, I think he shouldn't have settled".

Fox News addressed the departure of Bill O'Reilly Wednesday night, as the show that used to bear his name debuted as simply "The Factor".

Despite the allegations and loss of 60 advertisers, "The O'Reilly Factor" saw an increase in both ratings and viewers a week after the allegations surfaced, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"Nation, shame on you. It speaks to a company that has recognized that the best business decision for them is to end their relationship with Bill O'Reilly". You didn't deserve this great man.
