Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly has given an interview in which he talked about his decision to leave Fox News following the ousting of former CEO Roger Ailes in March, the network’s parent company said Wednesday.
O’Rielly said the network had “got a chance to do some good things,” and that it would “continue to have a tremendous impact” on American society.
Fox News will be a part of the new Fox News Digital portfolio in 2021, the cable network said in a statement.
O`Reilly told Fox News Sunday that he has “been in a place where I’m really comfortable doing this.”
O’Reilly, who left Fox News in March after a tumultuous two-year tenure, was hired to replace Gretchen Carlson after she quit in September.
Fox had already offered O’Brien an opportunity to work in the Trump administration, but O’Bryan’s hiring comes just a month after Carlson said she was leaving.
OReilly has been on Fox News since 2002.
