It’s the spring of brand safety, and Fox News just gave advertisers some reassurance, cutting ties with its most prominent anchor Bill O’Reilly amid allegations of sexual harassment.
“After a thorough and careful review of the allegations,” the No. 1 cable news network said in a statement on Wednesday, “the company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel.”
“Tucker Carlson Tonight” will take over the 8 p.m. timeslot starting next week. “The Five” will move into the 9 p.m. timeslot Carlson previously occupied, having been brought in to fill the role vacated by Megyn Kelly in January.
