Fox News Guest Host Greg Gutfeld Closes Out Final Airing Of Bill O’Reilly’s Show: This Is A Sad Day
Last night guest host Greg Gutfeld closed out the final airing of Bill O’Reilly’s long-running show, which has topped cable news rating for the last two decades. Here’s his message:
“As for those of us who have been part of the Factor team, a personal note. Even as we look forward to the new beginnings, this is a sad day here. Some of the people on the Factor staff have been here from the very beginning helping Bill O’Reilly create something that had never been done before.
“In the 20 years since the Factor has been on the air, Bill changed the way news is done, and his show became a sanctuary for you, our loyal viewers, who are not being well-served by the mainstream media.
“As for me, I’ve been privileged to play a small role with my weekly segments and my substitute hosting gigs. But I’ve never been in a situation like this before. How do I turn out the lights on such a venerable and amazing show? I can’t. It’s not my show and it’s not my place. So on behalf of all of us on the Factor, good night and godspeed.”
