Bill O'Reilly Is Filming His New Digital TV Show at Newsmax's Studio
The former Fox News anchor splits his daily show between a studio and his home office.
Bill O'Reilly isn't back on television yet, but he's occasionally filming his digital news and commentary show No Spin News at the studio of a television company. The former Fox News host revealed on an episode of his show that he's been filming the studio version of his show at Newsmax's office in New York.
A rep for O'Reilly confirmed that he has "an informal relationship" with the conservative news channel, which has recently published reporting about one of the women who accused O'Reilly of acting inappropriately while at Fox News. Chris Ruddy, the chief executive of Newsmax, is a friend of President Donald Trump and said at the time that the mainstream media wasn't interested in giving O'Reilly's side of the story.
O'Reilly, based on feedback from his digital subscribers, tapes some episodes of the show in his home in a collared golf shirt and some episodes in a suit at the studio.
"People like the casualness of the home office and then the formality here," O'Reilly said on Thursday's show. "We're very pleased to be here at the studios of Newsmax, which is a great website. You should check it out."
According to a Crain's New York story from 2011, Newsmax has a 5,000-square-foot office in New York that features a "state-of-the-art television studio."
O'Reilly first debuted a studio show in mid-August, and he announced this week that it's now available on digital platforms like Apple TV and Roku, marking a step closer to replicating the linear television experience.
Newsmax has been rumored as a potential landing spot for O'Reilly, and a digital media executive said of his new studio setup, "I’m sure they’d love to convince him to turn it into more than a rental!"
