The American author, television broadcaster and host, syndicated columnist and political commentator,
William James O'Reilly, Jr. (known to audiences as Bill O'Reilly) is presently touring the nation to give his legion of followers
the opportunity to hear his robust opinions relating to politics (and culture). When Bill O'Reilly comes to town, the stage
is transformed into more than the proverbial soapbox. While having been reported as a registered Republican and Independent
over the years, O'Reilly contends in reference to whether he is a conservative, liberal, libertarian, or etc., "I don't want
to fit any of those labels, because I belive that the truth doesn't have labels." While the Fox News Channel (a network that
has been characterized by its promotion of conservatism) is home to The O'Reilly Factor, audiences from all walks of life
(with or without labels) who are interested in "truth" will interested to discover the truth as Bill O'Reilly perceives it.
Audiences will have numerous opportunities (thanks to the Bolder & Fresher Tour with Dennis Miller) across the nation
to discover the truth during Bill O'Reilly's tour and appearance schedule: Friday, November 15 at the Colosseum at Caesars
Palace in Las Vegas, NV at 8:00 PM (Bolder & Fresher Tour); Saturday, January 18 at Bob Carr Performing Arts Center in
Orlando, FL at 8:00 PM (Bolder & Fresher Tour); Friday, January 31 at Ralston Arena in Ralston, NE at 8:00 PM (Speaking
Engagement); and Friday, February 21 at Copley Symphony Hall in San Diego, CA at 8:00 PM (Bolder & Fresher Tour).
Many audiences may question how Bill O'Reilly became the host of the successful cable (Fox News Channel)
news show The O'Reilly Factor. Bill O'Reilly was raised in Long Island and then followed a less direct route to becoming the
man who so many respect. Bill O'Reily attended Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY, where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts in
History, before heading to the Boston University where he received a Master's degree in Broadcast Journalism. While the degree
in Broadcast Journalism in many ways equipped him for his current position on The Factor, it was his further studies at The
Kennedy School of Government at Harvard in Public Administration that provided the necessary credibility to gain popularity
among audiences. Now Bill O'Reilly has hosted one of the most watched basic cable news shows, The O'Reilly Factor, for thirteen
years. According to ratings, there are more than 5-million people who nightly watch the show. In addition to his television
show hosting, Bill O'Reilly has published five best-selling non-fiction books and his very own memoir. Most of Bill O'Reilly's
published work focuses on history, such as the works: Killing Lincoln and Killing Kennedy. Both of these titles sold millions
of copies and quickly found new homes at the top of the New York Times best-seller list. What is more is that O'Reilly's book
on Lincoln was adapted to a movie and DVD by The History Channel. The success of the Lincoln adaptation led to an adaption
of Killing Kennedy, starring Rob Lowe. The historical genre focus and killing-themed books did not end with President Kennedy.
Bill O'Reilly has now followed with a book entitled Killing Jesus. Writing such historically relevant books is not the area
of his authorship; Bill O'Reilly continues to write a weekly newspaper column.
It would be
interesting to ask Bill O'Reilly what he considers his breakthrough to what kind of answer he provides. He is clearly an advocate
of "rolling up one's sleeves" to get the work done. It is quite possible that O'Reilly has never had a "breakthrough" but
has been steadfast and determined to work hard. According to his biography, there are "no shortcuts, no compromise, no letup."
That may be why Bill O'Reilly continues his 13-year reign on The Fox News Channel and best-selling book after best-selling
Before heading into broadcasting, Bill O'Reilly spent time teaching high school history.
O'Reilly has a love of historical documents and is a known collector. One might be surprised that even after having taught
as a high school history teacher, Bill O'Reilly told The New York Times that he works harder now than he ever worked in his
