Bill O'Reilly

Broadcast journalist Bill O’Reilly was born on September 10, 1949 in New York City and was raised on Long Island. After earning his bachelor’s degree in history from Marist College, he taught the subject for two years at a Miami high school before enrolling in Boston University for his master’s degree in broadcast journalism. He then embarked on his journey as a television news reporter and moved from Scranton, PA to Dallas, Denver, Portland, Oregon, Hartford, Boston, and New York. He won Emmys at KMGH in Denver and WCBS in New York. O’Reilly eventually landed a network gig for CBS News, where he covered wars in El Salvador and the Falkland Islands. He transferred over to ABC News’ “World News Tonight” as a correspondent in 1986 for a three year term. In 1989, O’Reilly landed on syndicated news magazine “Inside Edition,” initially as correspondent and was soon promoted to host. He returned to school in 1995 for another master’s degree, this one in public administration, from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. After graduation, former chairman and CEO of FOX News, Roger Ailes, recruited him to host “The O’Reilly Factor,” known for its “No Spin Zone.” Following sexual harassment claims surfacing against O’Reilly, Fox News ousted the anchor in April 2017 after advertisers pulled out. Ailes also left the network due to similar allegations in July 2016. Tucker Carlson’s show “Tucker Carlson Tonight” filled the timeslot left vacant by “The O’Reilly Factor.” O’Reilly’s voice can be heard on his “No Spin News” podcast. He’s also a bestselling author of “The Killing” series. Titles include “Killing the Rising Sun,” “Killing Reagan,” “Killing Kennedy,” “Killing Lincoln,” and more. O’Reilly has two children with ex-wife Maureen McPhilmy, Madeline and Spencer. He lost custody in February 2016 after his daughter allegedly accused him of dragging McPhilmy down a staircase by the neck. She supposedly witnessed the incident while her parents were still married.
