“Trying to figure out Bill O’Reilly’s next TV home has turned into a cottage industry,” Variety reports. “Might the former linchpin of Fox News Channel’s primetime lineup move to Newsmax? A deal with Sinclair Broadcast Group? The conservative-leaning One America News Network?”
The answer, according to Variety, is CNN — at least for a short visit.
“O’Reilly indicated during a streaming video-cast on his own BillOReilly.com Wednesday evening that he intends to visit the CNN weekend show hosted by Michael Smerconish after the publication of his next book, ‘Killing England,’ slated to be released in September by Henry Holt.”
CNN and “Smerconish” indicated nothing has been confirmed.
“The appearance, if it were to take place, would be O’Reilly’s first on CNN, with which he competed for years while anchoring Fox News’ 8 p.m. slot,” Variety notes.
