Bill O'Reilly is taking a vacation from Fox News amid sexual harassment scandal
Bill O'Reilly will take a nearly two-week vacation from his Fox News program, the host announced Tuesday.
The leave — which reportedly had been planned in October — comes as O'Reilly is embroiled in a sexual harassment scandal that has led advertisers to ditch his show en masse.
Four network sources told New York magazine that Tuesday might have been it for O'Reilly as the embattled host's behavior is investigated by Fox News parent company; the Murdoch family, which runs the network, is reportedly divided on how to handle O'Reilly.
An O'Reilly spokesperson denied O'Reilly was being taken off the air, telling CNN that the "Factor broadcast will remain unchanged until Mr. O'Reilly's return post-vacation."
O'Reilly will return to his program April 24, according to his representative.
