hree former Fox News favorites are reportedly preparing to make a big comeback to cable news, and they could all be on the same network.
According to Page Six, Bill O’Reilly, Eric Bolling, and Greta Van Susteren are in talks to join Newsmax TV, a free cable news network.
If everything went according to Newsmax’s plan, Van Susteren would anchor the 7 p.m. ET time slot, O’Reilly would take 8 p.m., and Bolling could round out the primetime coverage at 9 p.m.
On Monday, it was reported that O’Reilly is strongly considering joining Newsmax TV. O’Reilly hasn’t hosted his own show on cable news since he resigned from Fox News amid allegations of sexual misconduct. He has denied all of the allegations against him.
Page Six reports Newsmax TV is also in advanced talks with Van Susteren, who is reportedly very interested in the time slot and joining the company.
However, things may be a tad trickier with Bolling, who recently signed a deal with CRTV to host his own digital show online.
Here’s what an insider told Page Six:
“The deals are not done yet, but talks are in the advanced stages, certainly with O’Reilly. The thinking is, following a 6 p.m. news show, Greta would anchor the 7 p.m. hour, O’Reilly would be back at 8 p.m., and Bolling could smoothly continue on at 9 p.m. Spicer and his cohorts would go on at 10 p.m., with the later slot allowing the show to be looser. But the deals are not yet signed and sealed.”
Bill O’Reilly’s is in advanced discussions with Newsmax about developing a new show.

Hell yeah! It may help a lot of these true Patriots financially, and it will help balance out the "Fourth Branch". #MAGA

Newsmax Media CEO Christopher Ruddy, a close friend to President Donald Trump, has said he wants Newsmax TV to be “a kinder, gentler” version of Fox News.
Time will tell if these three superstars all join Newsmax TV, but many are wishing them luck and would love to see them back on air.
