Well it looks like all the rumors about Fox News host Bill O’Reilly can finally be put to rest.
It’s been officially confirmed he’s out at the network. But that’s not all.
We also know who will be taking his place at the coveted 8 pm ET time slot.
Townhall.Com is reporting, Tucker Carlson will be moving to O’Reilly’s former time slot, and The Five will be moving to 9 p.m.

Say what you will about O’Reilly, but the man was certainly a prime time cable news legend with a rather lengthy career on one of the most top rated networks on television. That’s still quite an accomplishment.
Tucker and the gang from “The Five” are all great at what they do, so no doubt they’ll fill in this block of programming nicely.
It’ll be interesting to see if any more big shake-ups come to Fox over the next few months. You just never know.
