The Factor Cuts ‘O’Reilly’ From Title Graphic; Dana Perino Opens With Statement

Fox News began a new and uncertain era for The Factor on Wednesday, after host Bill O’Reilly was fired earlier in the day.

The opening graphic referred to the show as merely The Factor. Substitute host Dana Perino led the long-running broadcast with a statement.

“We want to address a situation many of you may already be aware of. Bill O’Reilly, who hosted this program for twenty years, is leaving the Fox News Channel,” Perino stated.

She added, “We know that you, his very loyal viewers, will have a lot of feelings about this; and we will talk more about it later on in the program.”
