“Over the past 20 years at Fox News,” O’Reilly wrote. “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.”
O’Reilly who has helped built Fox News into a cable news machine, called the decision “tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims”.
Going on to thank viewers, “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”.
