Bill O’Reilly is going to be sticking around the Fox News Channel for another four years. The top-rated cable news network announced O’Reilly has signed a new multi-year contract. The deal is estimated to be worth between $10 million and $12 million a year. What O’Reilly won’t be doing for the next four years, apparently, is his daily radio show. O’Reilly told The NY Daily News Tuesday that he’s reevaluating his syndicated radio program and will likely give it up.
"I can’t work 60 hours a day. I’m going to have to make some kind of adjustments," O’Reilly said of the radio show. "Next year, it will happen. Right now we’re still trying to iron that out."
His show, syndicated by Westwood One, is heard by about 3.5 million viewers nationwide, according to Talkers Magazine. The radio show is also heard on Sirius XM Satellite Radio. He also does a shorter commentary segment for about 200 radio stations.
O’Reilly’s deal with Fox News to continue doing "The O’Reilly Factor" comes on the heels of FNC colleague Sean Hannity also signing a new contract to remain on the network through at least 2012.
