Mr. O'Reilly isn't the first person at Fox News to be swept out amid a sexual-harassment scandal. But then, "The O'Reilly Factor" generated hundreds of millions in ad revenue for the network.
There were a number of impassioned reactions to Bill O'Reilly's ousting from Fox News on Wednesday, and two very different ones came from just one man: Stephen Colbert.More news: Death toll in Venezuelan protests reaches nine
Kelly, who was considered more middle-of-the-road politically than other leading Fox personalities, has also indicated that she was harassed by Roger Ailes, the former chief of the news network, who left Fox in July 2016 under a cloud of sexual harassment allegations.

Before his ouster on Wednesday, he wrote in an email about correspondence with Mary Pat Bonner, who was working with Media Matters on a campaign to get advertisers to drop his show following the April 1 New York Times exposé about past sexual harassment claims against him.
"It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims".
According to CBS News, O'Reilly will receive $25 million in severance from the network. "I will always look back on my time at Fox with great pride in the unprecedented success we achieved and with my deepest gratitude to all my dedicated viewers".More news: Manchester United's Jose Mourinho not giving up on top-four finish
Burgess, who as of today has more television presence than O'Reilly, said she held off on reporting him out of worry for her career, but she eventually reported him because she "wanted to save him from doing it to anyone else". The book, ironically, includes advice from O'Reilly on treating women with respect.
