Sinclair Broadcast Group put to rest on Wednesday speculation that it plans to hire former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly.
During a morning conference call with analysts, Sinclair President and CEO Chris Ripley responded to a question about the Hunt Valley-based broadcaster’s reported interest in hiring O’Reilly, who was forced out at Fox in April amid sexual harassment allegations.
“We get approached all the time by a lot of people,” Ripley said. “He did approach us. … We do not have any interest in hiring him.”
