Bill O'Reilly's The Factor remains, as it has for the past 13 years, the most watched of all cable news shows.
More than 5-million of you tune in each night, and the impact of that support and loyalty has carried over to Bill's other recent projects, where there has been extraordinary output and success.
After five best-selling non-fiction books and his memoir, Bill has been focusing on writing about history. Killing Lincoln was first, followed by Killing Kennedy; both sold millions and zoomed to the top of the New York Times best seller list. The History Channel adapted the Lincoln Book into a movie (and DVD). It was such a big hit that the same was done for Killing Kennedy, starring Rob Lowe in the title role, with a major, high profile release (November 2013) to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the assassination.
Meanwhile, after extensive research Bill also completed, and released, Killing Jesus (September 2013), revealing new details about Jesus' life, and chronicling the events leading to his death. And, more good news: still another in this series of explosive books is expected before very long.
But, as they say, that's not all.
Bill's weekly newspaper column continues, along with many personal appearances. Plus, we can't forget Keep It Pithy, which is based on Bill's love of language, and his frequent plea to those of you who write to him.
Some background about Bill himself: as many of you already know, he grew up on Long Island, got a BA (in history, of course) from Marist College, a Master's Degree in Broadcast Journalism from Boston University, and a second MA in Public Administration from The Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. In addition to studying history, Bill taught it in high school before going into broadcasting, and he's been a long time serious collector of historical documents.
The Factor, the books, all this activity, sums up Bill's approach to life. No shortcuts, no compromise, no letup. That's Bill's way, and it continues. As he told The New York Times, "I work harder now than I have ever worked in my life."
As Bill always remarks, without you nothing happens, and we are especially happy you are keeping up right here at BillOReilly.com.
