About William James O'Reilly, Jr.

Bill O'Reilly is a successful news commentator and bestselling author with an estimated net worth of $85 million.

Born on September 10, 1949 and raised in New York, O'Reilly took his Masters Degree in Broadcast Journalism at Boston University before becoming one of the United States' most popular political pundits on both talk radio and cable news.

The host of The O'Reilly Factor on the Fox News Channel, Bill O'Reilly is known for his conservative punditry and "pithy" commentary. Since beginning the program in 1996, The O'Reilly Factor has continuously ranked as the top cable news show on television. The success of the show has been cited as the inspiration behind Stephen Colbert's satirical news show, The Colbert Report.

Bill O'Reilly is also a New York Times bestselling author, having penned such books as A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity and Pinheads and Patriots. His historical books Killing Lincoln and Killing Kennedy, with over a million copies sold, have also been transformed into National Geographic made for television documentaries.

In April 2017, his two-decade reign as a high-caliber and influential commentator ended when he was forced out of Fox News Channel, following the eruption of news on how the 21st Century Fox and Fox News have protected him against the mounting sexual harassment allegations filed against him. It was further reported by the New York Times that five allegations cost a total of $13 million as a settlement.
