Bill O. “Bill” O’Riley, a longtime Fox News anchor who spent more than half his career at the network, is retiring.
O’Leary confirmed the news Tuesday.
O-Reilly, 84, was one of the network’s first anchors in the late 1990s and early 2000s and was the anchor of Fox News’ flagship news program “The O’Donnell Report.”
He also anchored Fox Business Network and Fox Business News.
O’sReilly and the network have remained loyal to each other, and he has also continued to host and produce Fox News specials.
The network has said it plans to announce O’Brien’s successor within the next several months.
Fox News has been hit by multiple lawsuits from the Trump administration over its treatment of undocumented immigrants and has faced a number of allegations of sexual harassment.
The news network’s ratings have declined since the election, and its advertisers have cut back on giving money to it, with CNN, Time Warner, NBCUniversal and Walt Disney Company among the companies to have pulled their advertisements from Fox News.
