To no one’s surprise, cable-news stars Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity are close to signing new multi-year deals with Fox News. EW has confirmed a Deadline report that the two evening anchors’ new contracts will keep them both at Fox at least through 2016, which would mark their 20th years with the No. 1 cable news network.
The O’Reilly Factor is the long-running top-rated news show on cable, averaging approximately 2.8 million viewers each night. Hannity pulls in about 2.1 million at a later hour.
