During the handover to fellow primetime host Laura Ingraham, Hannity thanked viewers for making his show the most watched in cable news. He also discussed a recent conversation he had with O’Reilly on the radio.
“I said, ‘Why don’t you come back to cable? I’ll let you be number one again because then I’ll take a lot less crap,’” Hannity told Ingraham.
Hannity then suggested O’Reilly, the former host of “The O’Reilly Factor,” could return to “take the crap” because “there’s a lot that comes with” being number one.
O’Reilly reportedly spent $45 million settling sexual harassment allegations, including a $32 million payout to one analyst at the network. Since then, he has hosted the podcast “No Spin News” and created daily radio commentaries called “The O’Reilly Update.”
