Hannity to host O’Reilly Tuesday on Fox News

Former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly will appear on his former network for an interview with Sean Hannity Tuesday night in Hannity’s new time slot of 9 p.m. 

The interview will mark the second in eight days for O’Reilly with Hannity, which is turning some heads in the media world since the two were reportedly at odds during their years together at Fox. 

O’Reilly is on a media tour to promote the latest in his “Killing” book series, “Killing England,” which tackles events leading up to and through the Revolutionary War. 

O’Reilly joined Hannity on his radio program on Sept. 18 for a rare public conversation between the two conservative stars, during which Hannity recommended that O’Reilly come back to the cable news network.

{mosads}”We crushed CNN and MSNBC. Crushed them,” O’Reilly said to Hannity as the two discussed what they describe as an organized, well-funded “agenda from the left” to take down conservative media voices.

“Do you want to come back [to Fox News]? I think you should come back,” Hannity said.

“I’m at the beach every day. You want to bring me back into the swamp?” O’Reilly asked.

“I think you want back in the swamp, and I think you’d love it back in the swamp,” replied Hannity. “I know your fans would like you back on, too, and there’s not a day that goes by that people don’t ask me, ‘How’s O’Reilly doing? When is he coming back?’

“Would you consider at some date coming back to Fox?”

“I don’t know,” O’Reilly replied. “I have to get this legal stuff done. I have to get this investigation done.”

O’Reilly was referring to an investigation he revealed he’s conducting into what he believes was a concerted effort to get him ousted from Fox News.

“We’re going to be very precise,” O’Reilly said, adding it will be based on “stone-cold facts.”

O’Reilly was pushed out of Fox News after The New York Times reported earlier this year that the network had paid an estimated $13 million to settle sexual harassment lawsuits against him.

Hannity announced the O’Reilly booking on his Monday program following an interview with former White House chief strategist and current Breitbart executive chairman Steve Bannon. 

The host also announced House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) will appear on Wednesday. Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh, who rarely does television interviews, is slated for Thursday.
