For more than seven
consecutive years, The O'Reilly Factor on The FOX News
Channel has been the highest rated cable news show. No other
program even comes close.
It is presided over by Bill O'Reilly, the man who smiles
when he calls himself, "Your humble correspondent." O'Reilly
may be the most controversial, and the most frequently
discussed TV analyst today.
“The Factor”, as the show is commonly known, remains an
unequaled blend of news analysis and hard hitting
investigative reporting dropped into what Bill reminds us
nightly is "The No Spin Zone."
In addition to his cable show, Bill finds time to do a daily
2-hour radio show (heard on more than 400 stations), to
author a weekly column appearing in more than 300 papers,
and a series of best selling books.
In light of his accomplishments and his high profile, it is
particularly apt that his latest book is a deeply personal
and revealing memoir. O'Reilly explains the title came about
when he remembered how one of his first teachers looked at
him in class and said, "William, you are a bold fresh piece
And so that's what he named it, because "a bold fresh piece
of humanity," is what he truly is. Not surprising at all to
Bill's millions of viewers, listeners, and readers, or to
his often agitated critics.
The memoir comes on the heels of Bill's four previous
non-fiction works, all of which vaulted to # 1 on the New
York Times list of best sellers. In addition, “The O'Reilly
Factor For Kids” outsold all other children's non-fiction
during its run, and the paperback version of “Culture
Warriors” hit the top 10 in its first week of release.
Bill was certainly fresh, and already bold, when he started
his broadcasting career in Scranton, Pennsylvania before
moving on to report and anchor in other places such as
Dallas, Boston and New York. His national exposure began
with CBS and ABC News, and as host of the first version of
Inside Edition. It was in 1996 that O'Reilly landed at FOX
News. Along the way, as Bill gained his considerable
following, he has also accumulated more than his share of
journalism awards, including 3 Emmys, the latest being the
special 2008 Governor's Award in his old Boston stomping
O'Reilly was born in Manhattan but raised on Long Island.
His Bachelor's degree is in History from Marist College, and
he has a Master's Degree in Broadcast Journalism from Boston
University and another Master's Degree
in Public Administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy
School of Government.
