Sinclair Broadcast has ‘no interest’ in hiring Bill O’Reilly

Bill O’Reilly got shot down again, this time by Sinclair Broadcast.

The former Fox News Channel anchor had reached out the conservative network about starting a show similar to the “O’Reilly Factor,” CEO Chris Ripley said Wednesday.

“We get approached all the time by a lot of people, and he did approach us,” Ripley said on a quarterly earnings conference call, according to Deadline.

“But we do not have any interest in hiring him.”

O’Reilly is still looking for a new gig after being fired in April amid allegations of sexual harassment, abuse and racial discrimination from former female co-workers.

He and the network allegedly paid five women $ 13 million in settlements.

In late October, the New York Times reported that O’Reilly had paid a $ 32 million settlement to Lis Wiehl, who accused him of sending her gay pornography and other sexually explicit material. She also claims she was forced into a sexual relationship with him.

Fox News gave the anchor a four-year, $ 100 million contract extension after the payout.
