MUMBAI: Bill O’Reilly has re-signed a multi-year deal with Fox News Channel (FNC) to continue hosting The O’Reilly Factor. Said Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes, "Bill’s immense talent, intellect and raw convictions are an extremely rare combination in television and exemplify why The O’Reilly Factor has been the number one programme in cable news for more than a decade. He is a tremendous force in the business and has helped to make Fox News the success story it is today."

Joining FNC in 1996, O’Reilly initially served as host of The O’Reilly Report, which was renamed The O’Reilly Factor when it moved to primetime in 1998.

O’Reilly is known for his anti-establishment stance. He said, "It’s been great fun in challenging the establishment and exposing the corruption across the nation. The Factor takes pride in holding people accountable and I especially look forward to the exciting news cycle ahead. Fox News has become the primary force in television news under Roger’s leadership and I’m delighted to continue there for years to come."

Prior to joining FNC in 1996, he anchored the nationally syndicated programme, Inside Edition, for six years. His seasoned career in broadcast journalism also includes stints at CBS News, where he was awarded with an Emmy for outstanding investigative reporting, as well as ABC News’ World News Tonight, where his work was recognised with two National Headliner Awards for excellence in reporting.
