Bill O’Reilly is making his return to the “airwaves.”
Only this time, instead of cable news, O’Reilly will be preaching his no-spin agenda on the radio.
Glenn Beck extended O’Reilly a spot on his radio broadcast and O’Reilly has indicated he will accept the offer.
Welcome back, Bill!
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Former Fox News powerhouse Bill O’Reilly will join his fellow ex-network colleague and current head of The Blaze Glenn Beck for a weekly spot on Beck’s radio show.
O’Reilly appeared Friday on the broadcast with Beck, who extended an invitation to the recently ousted television host to join The Blaze.
“I would like you to work for The Blaze,” Beck told O’Reilly. “I could not get the cable coverage by myself because I’m not powerful enough, unless you have a giant corporation behind you.”
“If we could unite our powers for good, as opposed to evil–but that’s another conversation,” Beck added.
O’Reilly indicated Monday that he would accept Beck’s offer.
“We’re going to do that every Friday until Beck gets tired of me,” O’Reilly said on his “No Spin News” podcast. “And it’s a good outlet for me to, you know, discuss things back and forth with Beck, who’s a good friend. We don’t agree on everything, but it’s very lively.”
O’Reilly and Beck, who are friends, both faced controversy and fleeing advertisers before leaving Fox News. Beck’s show ended in 2011 after businesses, apparently unhappy with his controversial rhetoric, pulled their ads from his show. The network last month parted ways with O’Reilly, who hosted the top-rated program “The O’Reilly Factor,” amid a flurry of sexual harassment allegations.
