Former Fox News anchors Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck are teaming up for a weekly spot on Beck’s radio show. The two made their announcement public on Monday.
“We’re going to do that every Friday until Beck gets tired of me,” O’Reilly said Monday on his “No Spin News” podcast. “And it’s a good outlet for me to, you know, discuss things back and forth with Beck, who’s a good friend. We don’t agree on everything, but it’s very lively.”
Beck and O’Reilly have been friends ever since Beck’s departure from Fox in 2011. Both network all-stars were fired despite their high ratings. Beck was fired after advertisers dropped out of his show because they felt his statements were controversial, and O’Reilly faced sexual harassment claims that tarnished his reputation with advertisers as well.
Beck still appeared frequently on The O’Reilly Factor after he left the network, and recently explained how the two recently began the discussion of working together.
“I just got an email from Bill a little while ago that said he’s on his way home — he’s been on vacation; he’s been in Italy — and so he’s on his way home,” Beck said on his show Wednesday.
He added that he wasn’t convinced the sexual assault allegations against O’Reilly were legitimate.
“He had access [at Fox] to very beautiful women,” he said. “We never saw him utter a word that was even blue humor. He was so buttoned up when he was around us, I find these charges hard to believe.”
He then publicly offered O’Reilly a spot on his show.
“I would like you to work for TheBlaze,” Beck told O’Reilly on Friday on his radio program. “I could not get the cable coverage by myself because I’m not powerful enough, unless you have a giant corporation behind you. If we could unite our powers for good, as opposed to evil — but that’s another conversation.”
