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.
