Bill O'Reilly has been in the headlines over the last two weeks ever since the New York Times revealed that he reached a settlement with five different women over allegations of sexual harassment. As the pressure mounts on the network to make a move, the Fox News host could soon see his final days on the air.

Fox News on O'Reilly

Earlier this month, the New York Times reported that Bill O'Reilly reached a $13 million settlement with five women dating back to allegations made from over a decade ago. The women, most of whom had worked at Fox News, allege that O'Reilly sexually harassed them at various times. Since the report broke, over 50 sponsors have pulled their ads from "The O'Reilly Factor," with calls for the host to be fired heating up and increasing on a daily basis.

O'Reilly has remained on the air, but has not offered a comment on the allegations, leaving only his legal team to do the talking. On Tuesday's night broadcast of the program, O'Reilly announced that he was talking a vacation, but New York Magazine reported on April 11 that it could be the final time that he is seen on the network.

According to Gabriel Sherman of New York Magazine, Bill O'Reilly's vacation could be a permanent one. Sherman, whose prior investigative reporting led to the downfall of former Fox News founder and CEO Roger Ailes over allegations of sexual assault, went on to cite four anonymous sources, saying "there's talk inside Fox News that tonight’s show could be his last." The main reason to believe that O'Reilly could be gone from the network is due to James Murdoch, the CEO of 21st Century FOX, and son of current Fox News CEO Rupert Murdoch.

Double trouble

James Murdoch is reportedly pushing hard for Bill O'Reilly to be let go, as he is causing negative attention to a brand that is still recovering and re-branding from the aforementioned Roger Ailes scandal. O'Reilly's saving grace could be from Rupert Murdoch who isn't pushing as hard for his departure, but could end up siding with his son due to the loss of a major business deal.

CNN reported on Tuesday that the drama surrounding Bill O'Reilly could cause the Murdoch's to lose their potential purchase of Sky TV in the United Kingdom, though the network has not issued a comment on the situation. In addition, Fox News, as expected, has denied the report, with the host scheduled to the return to the air on April 24.

As of press time, only time will tell what the future will hold for the popular conservative host, but it doesn't appear to be moving in the right direction.
