O’Reilly’s Fox News Contract is $10 Million a Year

Controversial but top-rated cable news television host Bill O’Reilly has renegotiated his contract with Fox News that will see him paid $10 million a year.

No wonder he was so effusively upbeat and offensive on The View this week!

And to think that O’Reilly was there to promote his recently published memoir — a book written by a man so undeniably assured of his own self-righteousness, that only he could come up with such an inspired and hyperbolic title: A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity.

Sometimes, it’s almost hard to believe that O’Reilly is actually a real person, isn’t it?

Bill O’Reilly has re-upped with Fox News Channel in a multiyear deal that pays him about $10 million a year to host his top-rated news program, “The O’Reilly Factor.”

The former ABC correspondent has found unprecedented success at Fox, which he joined in 1996. “The O’Reilly Factor” has been the top-rated cable news program for 94 months, with an average nightly viewership of 4 million people.

“Bill O’Reilly is the most prominent and influential name in all of cable news, and his contribution to the network’s success cannot be overstated,” Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said.
