Fox News has had no real direction since they made the decision to fire their longtime commentator Bill O’Reilly. He really was the king of the network and brought in millions in advertising revenue annually.
This is one of the reasons it was so shocking to see the network move to let him go. He was fired after allegations came flooding in that he sexually harassed several women during his time at Fox News.
But he has been doing a fantastic job finding other things to do with his time. He has started a podcast in which people can listen to him online for a small monthly fee. But many conservatives that grew up with him want more.
There were reports that there was a new show that was going to have many big names in the conservative network but it never really took off. But now we might finally have something big in the works.
Gabriel Sherman is a New York magazine reporter that is well connected to Fox News. He has reported that there could possibly be a massive new show in the works that has both Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity.

“My sources in and around Fox say that Hannity and Bill O’Reilly are potentially in talks to take their shows to Sinclair. Bill O’Reilly has wanted to get back into the game,” noted Sherman. This would please millions of conservatives around the country.
“So Sinclair has really wanted to build the future of a conservative media empire and poaching Fox’s biggest names would help them to do that. This, again, is the groundwork for what I think will be the next conservative media platform in the post-Roger Ailes era,” he went on.
This would be huge for Bill O’Reilly who has wanted to get back on television ever since he was fired. But an opportunity like this never really opened up.
Hopefully this can get through the beginning stages and actually start to take form. This is very exciting news. Would you tune in to watch a network with Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity?
