Bill O’Reilly Net Worth

Bill O’Reilly Net Worth $85 Million

He is a jack-of-all-trades, and he leaves nothing but a trail of perfection. He is a bestselling author, a top-rated TV host, a columnist and a political commentator. William James O’reilly was born in 1949 and grew up in New York. His academic pedigree gives us a scope of what he is made of. He holds a B.A in history from Marist College, a master’s in Public Communication from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and a master’s in broadcast journalism from Boston University. 

He started his burgeoning writing career in Marist college where he was a writer for the School’s newspaper. His first book “Killing Lincoln” which details the assassination of Abraham Lincoln raked in millions and topped the list of New York best sellers.  Bill has continued to write explosive books that focus on history including Killing Kennedy, which sold millions of copies and Killing Jesus, which gives a new perspective on the events that led to his death.

His On-screen career began in Pennsylvania where he anchored and reported for the WNEP-TV.  He later moved to New York in 1980 where he hosted 7:30 Magazine for WCBS-TV. His tenure at WCBS-TV saw him receive a local Emmy for an investigation he did about corrupt city marshals. O’Reilly skyrocketed to fame when in 1989 he became the news anchor of the program Inside Edition. Under his reign, the program scooped the top spot in syndicated rankings. 

After graduating from Harvard, O’Reilly joined Fox News Channel. He has been the host of The O’Reilly Factor from 1996 to date and has been coined the new pope of journalism. With O’Reilly at the realm, the show has become the most watched cable news channel with over 4 million viewers tuning in each night.

Bill O’reilly is known for speaking his mind, but his opinions have sometimes stirred controversy and ruffled a few feathers. In 2002, he demanded Americans to boycott Pepsi products because their endorser, Ludacris, was peddling a life of violence and showed no respect for women. O’Reilly and Ludacris have since resolved the misunderstanding.

His on-air personality saw him receive the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Governor’s Award in 2008 and has seen him amass a net worth of $85 million.
