Bill O'Reilly's The Factor is now in its 20th year. Twenty years is a long time by any yardstick, but particularly when measured in television years. As we say most proudly, thanks to more than 5-million of you nightly, The Factor remains the most watched program on cable news, as it has throughout this time.
There is no letup in the planning and expectations for the show. Bill notes, "Looking ahead, politics is going to dominate, politics is really where we are at. We are going to dominate the election coverage, we are going to be ahead."
Here are the answers to those inevitable O'Reilly biographical questions: he was raised on Long Island, got his BA in history from Marist College, a Master's in Broadcast Journalism from Boston University, and a second MA in Public Administration from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. Bill's first professional love was history and he taught it in high school before going into broadcasting. He's also collected important historical documents for a long time.
