It’s a BIG day here. Legendary commentator Bill O’Reilly is joining The First!
Our commitment to you, our audience, is something we take very seriously. From the beginning we’ve been dedicated to free speech, big ideas, and bold opinions. That’s why we couldn’t be happier to welcome O’Reilly to our family and our lineup.
Starting today, O’Reilly’s program, “No Spin News,” will air twice daily at 8pm ET and 11pm ET. You can watch the show, as well as all other The First programming, for free on ourwebsite, apps, and digital platforms, as well as on platforms Pluto TV, STIRR, and DistroTV.
O’Reilly’s success in broadcasting and publishing is unmatched. The iconic anchor of “The O’Reilly Factor” led the program to the status of the highest-rated cable news broadcast in the nation for 16 consecutive years. His daily radio program, “The O’Reilly Update,” is heard on over 200 affiliates nationwide. Bill has authored 15 #1 bestselling books and has over 17 million books in print. He has been a broadcaster for 45 years and has been awarded three Emmy’s and a number of other journalism accolades. He was a national correspondent for CBS News and ABC News as well as a reporter-anchor for WCBS-TV in New York City, among other high-profile jobs.
“The success of BillOReilly.com with millions of users will now accelerate with our partnership,” O’Reilly said of the big announcement. “The First will create and distribute honest, corporate-free news and commentary which is desperately needed in America.”
In addition to O’Reilly, The First’s all-star roster of commentators includes Dana Loesch, the top nationally syndicated female talk radio host in America, with her signature program, “The Dana Show,” as well as former CIA and NYPD officer Buck Sexton hosting “The Buck Sexton Show,” combat veteran and radio host Jesse Kelly hosting “I’m Right w/ Jesse Kelly,” and prominent conservative talk show host Mike Slater hosting “True Story with Mike Slater.” The First also has a collection of young contributors, such as Madison Gesiotto, Tiana Lowe, Billy Hallowell, Rob Smith, and Sydney Watson, who drive the daily political conversation.
