When liberals ran Bill O’Reilly out of Fox News, they thought they had finished him off for good.

The anti-Fox media celebrated the toppling of the number one host of cable news.

But Bill O’Reilly quickly made an announcement that signaled his comeback.

O’Reilly revealed he will be hosting the “No Spin News” podcast for subscribers to his website.

Breitbart reports:

“Bill O’Reilly will return to the airwaves six days after his departure from Fox News with a new podcast episode set to air Monday on his website.

O’Reilly’s “No Spin News” will air Monday, April 24 at 7 p.m. Eastern, according to a promotional graphic posted to his website Sunday.

The episode will mark a return for the popular news host just six days after his departure from Fox News, where he hosted the perennially top-rated O’Reilly Factor for two decades.

O’Reilly exited last week after an investigation into five sexual harassment allegations leveled against him during his tenure at the network.”

There was intense media speculation as to where O’Reilly would land now that he parted ways with Fox News.

Would an upstate conservative news network like Sinclair Broadcasting, Newsmax, or One America News Network try to hire him?

O’Reilly released a statement after he was let go from Fox that never mentioned he would retire.

It read:

“Over the past 20 years at Fox News, I have been extremely proud to launch and lead one of the most successful news programs in history, which has consistently informed and entertained millions of Americans and significantly contributed to building Fox into the dominant news network in television. It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims. But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today. I will always look back on my time at Fox with great pride in the unprecedented success we achieved and with my deepest gratitude to all my dedicated viewers. I wish only the best for Fox News Channel.”

O’Reilly was known to have the biggest and most loyal audience on cable news.

Ratings dipped 25 percent when he went on vacation and Fox used substitute hosts.

The network has had to reorganize their entire primetime lineup – giving Tucker Carlson the 8pm timeslot, moving The Five to 9pm, and handing Eric Bolling his own solo program at 5pm.

O’Reilly will no doubt see a boost in his subscriber base now that his website will be the exclusive home of his new podcast.

But how will Fox News Channel fare in their ratings now?

O’Reilly is airing his program at 7pm, so he will not be competing directly with any of Fox’s new primetime shows.

Many thought he might try and get back at Fox for his unceremonious dismissal, but he is not trying to tank their ratings by going head-to-head with his old timeslot.

The decision to let O’Reilly go was controversial.

Some thought O’Reilly deserved to pay a price for his conduct.

Others maintained he was the target of a left-wing witch hunt led by activists on the left and the Fox News hating media.

But one thing is now certain: O’Reilly is making a comeback.
