Bill O'Reilly was bornon 10 September 1949 in New York City, United States. Bill O'Reilly is #71 in List Highest-Paid Celebrities In The World. It's been a rocky year for O'Reilly, who was fired from Fox News following an investigation into harassment allegations he denied, but it's also been a lucrative one. He made seven figures from Fox News leading up to his dismissal and pocketed a portion of his reportedly $25 golden parachute afterwards, while shifting over two million books in our scoring period. His book, "Old School," even debuted atop of the New York Times best-sellers list. With more of his severance to come next year, O'Reilly may be out at Fox, but his earnings are certainly not down.
