The O'Reilly Factor is now in its 20th year. Twenty years is a long time by any yardstick, but particularly when measured in television years.
As we say most proudly, thanks to more than 5-million of you nightly, The Factor remains the most watched program on cable news, as it has for 16 years.
There is no letup in the planning and expectations for the show. Bill notes, "Looking ahead, politics is going to dominate, politics is really where we are at. We are going to dominate the election coverage, we are going to be ahead."
Of course, as those of you familiar with the hard working Mr. O'Reilly are aware, his presence is felt in many places these days. In fact, you might call him practically ubiquitous. Some examples:
Bill's latest book, Killing the Rising Sun, is out, following in the path of the others that went to # 1 on the New York Times bestsellers list. The epic saga takes you behind the scenes of a country caught up in violent times. This is Bill's tenth #1 New York Times bestseller.
Told in the same page-turning style as Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing Jesus, Killing Patton, and Killing Reagan, Killing the Rising Sun details the final moments of WWII like never before. We think you will like it.
Highly successful National Geographic Channel movies have already been made of Bill's books, with Killing Jesus nominated for a primetime EMMY, just as Killing Lincoln was before it.
Coming up on National Geographic, there will be a movie made from Killing Patton and Killing Reagan. Bill also serves as Executive Producer on the Fox News Channel's Legends & Lies, the real story of the legendary figures from our nation's rich history. Season three is on the horizon.
In addition, you can be on the lookout for Bill on the major television talk shows where he is a coveted guest, and as he continues hitting the road with Dennis Miller in their sought after national tour. Look for a special guest in 2017.
Some biographical info: Bill was raised on Long Island, got his BA in history from Marist College, a Master's in Broadcast Journalism from Boston University, and a second MA in Public Administration from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard.
Bill's first professional love was history and he taught it in high school before going into broadcasting. He's also collected important historical documents for a long time.
Hard as it is to imagine, some day, perhaps, Bill will slow down. But not now. He still has a long way to go, and a great deal to accomplish. As Bill has always said, he can only do that because of your support, the people he calls "the folks."
