Bill O’Reilly Dropped by Talent Agency After New York Times Report

The fallout from the big New York Times report on Bill O’Reilly’s $32 million settlement continues.

The Hollywood Reporter was first to report that the former Fox News host has been dumped by his talent agency UTA:

The agency informed the former Fox News host Monday evening that it would no longer be representing him. The former Fox News host has long been a client of N.S. Bienstock Agency, which was acquired by UTA in 2014…

But UTA’s move was not unexpected. Not surprisingly, they came under enormous pressure from many of its liberal Hollywood clients to dump O’Reilly last spring when it was revealed that he had settled harassment claims after the sex harassment scandal engulfing former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes.

O’Reilly’s rep Mark Fabiani told THR, “Bill has already lined up new representation.”

O’Reilly himself has been slamming the Times over the report, and just yesterday tweeted: “I’m not going to run and hide because I didn’t do anything wrong.”
