Some TV networks are apparently interested in bringing on Bill O’Reilly, and the former Fox News host is now fielding various offers.

If you’ve been enjoying having Bill O’Reilly off of television, then the celebration might end up coming to a close.

As we all know, The O’Reilly Factor host Bill O’Reilly found himself in some hot water earlier this year. In the wake of sexual harassment allegations, the Fox News personality found himself without a show. Sponsors pulling ad money away from the network gave Fox little choice but to cut their ties with the controversial conservative.

However, O’Reilly didn’t go straight into retirement. He’s remaining active through his podcast and is still hopeful for a new show deal. Recent reports seem to indicate that he’s developing a half-hour newscast with the intent of shopping it around. And apparently he’s going to have choices, because more than one network has already come a-knockin’. reports that conservative TV networks have already begun sending offers to O’Reilly. This even includes an offer from One America News Network which would have supposedly paid him more than Fox. But O’Reilly seems intent on being on a “competitive” network, so we will just have to see what happens.

The fact of the matter is that O’Reilly does have a large following, even if many others despise him. TV networks are no doubt interested in having O’Reilly’s fanbase boost ratings for the channel. So it’s looking more like we’ll see O’Reilly back on TV again one day.
