Bill O'Reilly to end syndicated radio show
By The Associated Press | 05 Dec 2008 | 01:32 PM ET
Text Size

NEW YORK - Fox News Channel said popular cable TV host Bill O'Reilly will step down as the host of his syndicated talk radio show early next year.

"The Radio Factor" which began in 2002 and runs on more than 400 radio stations, as well as satellite operator Sirius XM Radio Inc. will end in the first quarter of 2009, Fox said late Thursday.

In a statement, O'Reilly said the workload has become too much, adding, "I can no longer give both TV and radio the time they deserve."

O'Reilly will continue hosting "The O'Reilly Factor" on the Fox News Channel and writing his weekly newspaper column.

6. It's so hard being a dick on two shows.
I want to devote my time to being twice as much of a prick on TV.

8. Good news! K&R...
Let's hope that Hannity and Michael Weiner Savage, the worst of the worst, are next... x(

11. Yeah, they will all suddenly not have enough time to dedicate to their shows.
Just the same way that politicians who are in the middle of a scandal decide to suddenly spend time with their families. Pure coincidence I am sure.

21. Well, the way that Weiner-Savage was removed from TV was that MoveOn organized a huge boycott of his
sponsors. Unfortunately, last I knew, he's still on the radio. I was surfing radio stations once in my car when I ran across something I just couldn't believe. This guy gave out the home address and phone number of a black female lawyer that did something he didn't like. Jesus. Turned out it was Savage. He really needs to go away... x(

O'Reilly et al need to go away because of the dangerous lies that they spread and many people believe. My mother watches him, gives me crap because I don't watch "the news..." :eyes:

One day she said that she didn't approve of stem cell research because they "kill children." When I said "what?!," I think she realized how idiotic that sounded... :crazy:

I try not to discuss politics with her, but she will bring it up. I once asked her who was responsible for 9/11, fearing but expecting that she'd say Saddam Hussein. But her answer floored me. She said it was the Palestinians! Huh?! That's what you get if you watch FIXED News... :banghead:

41. I didn't even know that Savage had a TV show. But it makes me oh so happy to
hear that he was taken off of the air and that it was at the hands of MoveOn.org.

43. It was on MSNBC, believe it or not, and it was vile.
I think it was taken off the air in 2003. I tried to take part in the MoveOn "action" more than once, but couldn't force myself to sit through enough of his hatemongering to write about it. It was only when they wrote a letter that we could send that I was able to do it. IMHO, he's the worst, but there are a lot more of them out there... x(

29. And let's not forget
Mark LeVin. His anger and hatred ooze out of my radio.

I could also do without Curtis Sliwa. His voice drives me up a wall. And his stupidity is revolting.

But not Rushbo. He's too amusing for words.

31. Looks like Curtis just lost some hours.
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Joe and Mika are taking over that 10 - noon slot that Curtis was babysitting. He may still be on in the 10 pm - 1am slot although there are apparently alot of changes being made at the NYC radio stations, so it will be interesting to see what the end result will be between WABC and WOR.

44. Yes, but the trouble with Rush is that some people believe him...
He may be amusing to the informed and clued-in, but for his disciples, he's the fountain of truth... :eyes:

12. Simple Math: "I can no longer give both TV and radio the time they deserve."
Neither "deserves" any time, so that can't possibly be the explanation.

13. This raises such a beautiful question.....
What happens to Hannity?
What happens to Rush?
What happens to Faux news?
I can make anice list I am sure, but let me generalize it....

What happens to all of these scumbag propagandists that have made their careers exclusively consisting of spreading the propaganda of the Bush administration? Good riddance.... see ya....buh bye.... don't let the fucking door hit you on your ass on the way out!!!!! I hope that you all disappear into fucking oblivian!!!

36. He is fat. Saw him on the Barbara Walters special...looks like Jabba the Hutt.
Last time I had seen a current photo of him he had trimmed down quite a bit. But looks like he gained back all the weight he lost and then some. At this rate he won't live long enough to enjoy all the money they've paid him.

37. Rush and O'Reilly were the gifts that kept on giving
during the campaign.

It proved that all their fat talk doesn't have the power that it did before.

And, I wonder how long Rove will last? All his "insights" didn't pay off.

He was working 24/7 with his elves and they couldn't steal it this time.

They,like Palin, are an insult to the true Republican Party.

I don't want someone with even a little class to replace Bill or Rush or Rove.

They are only talking to their BASE now and that is how they lost this election, IMO.

20. His replacement will be two hours of silence.
His listeners will benefit more from constant dead air than hearing anything Bill O'Falafel has ever said.

35. Hey BILL!, Why don't you give up both TV and radio and give us what we deserve.
I hate Bill O'Reilly. What few times I listened to his radio show, it sounded like he was constantly talking down to me, telling me what an idiot I was, the whole while proclaiming he was the absolute authority on everything.

Good riddance Bill, glad I didn't know you.
