Bill O’Reilly Biography
Bill O’Reilly was born on September 10, 1949, at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York City, to parents William James, Sr., (deceased) and Winifred Angela (Drake) O’Reilly, from Brooklyn and Teaneck, New Jersey, respectively.
In 1980, Bill O’Reilly anchored the local news-feature program 7:30 Magazine at WCBS-TV in New York. Soon after, as a WCBS News anchor and correspondent, he won his second local Emmy, for an investigation of corrupt city marshals. In 1982 he was promoted to the network as a CBS News correspondent.
In 1986, Bill O’Reilly joined ABC News as a correspondent. He had delivered a eulogy for his friend Joe Spencer, an ABC News correspondent who died in a helicopter crash on January 22, 1986, en route to covering the Hormel meatpacker strike. ABC News president Roone Arledge, who attended Spencer’s funeral, decided to hire O’Reilly after hearing the eulogy.
After Harvard, Bill O’Reilly was hired by Roger Ailes, chairman and CEO of the then startup Fox News Channel, to anchor The O’Reilly Report in October 1996.
The program is routinely the highest-rated show of the three major U.S. 24-hour cable news television channels and began the trend toward more opinion-oriented prime-time cable news programming.
Until early 2009, Bill O’Reilly hosted a radio program that had more than 3.26 million listeners and was carried by more than 400 radio stations.
After the September 11 attacks, O’Reilly accused the United Way of America and American Red Cross of failing to deliver millions of dollars in donated money, raised by the organizations in the name of the disaster, to the families of those killed in the attacks.
Bill O’Reilly was married to Maureen E. McPhilmy, a public relations executive. They met in 1992, and their wedding took place in St. Brigid Parish of Westbury on November 2, 1996.
On October 13, 2004, Bill O’Reilly sued Andrea Mackris, a former producer for The O’Reilly Factor, alleging extortion. O’Reilly claimed that Mackris had threatened a lawsuit unless he paid her more than $60 million. Later the same day, Mackris sued O’Reilly for sexual harassment, seeking $60 million in damages.
On August 27, 2002, Bill O’Reilly called for all Americans to boycott Pepsi products, saying that lyrics of Ludacris (then appearing in ads for Pepsi) glamorize a “life of guns, violence, drugs and disrespect of women.” The next day, O’Reilly reported that Pepsi had fired Ludacris.
On December 8, 2004, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) sent Bill O’Reilly a letter criticizing him for making remarks offensive towards Jews on his radio talk show The Radio Factor.
Mr. O’Reilly is departing two and a half weeks after an investigation by The New York Times revealed how Fox News and 21st Century Fox had repeatedly stood by him even as sexual harassment allegations against him mounted.
The Times found that the company and Mr. O’Reilly had reached settlements with five women who had complained about sexual harassment or other inappropriate behavior by him. The agreements totaled about $13 million.
Since then, more than 50 advertisers had abandoned his show, and women’s rights groups had called for his ouster. Inside the company, women expressed outrage and questioned whether top executives were serious about maintaining a culture based on “trust and respect,” as they had promised last summer when another sexual harassment scandal forced the ouster of Roger E. Ailes as chairman of Fox News.
