After a series of settlements over sexual harassment claims against him, Bill O'Reilly, host of "The O'Reilly Factor" on Fox News, is leaving the network.

Longtime host Bill O’Reilly is out at Fox News.

The announcement comes after it was revealed that Fox has paid millions to settle claims of sexual harassment made by multiple women against O’Reilly. (Claims O’Reilly says are unfounded.)

His show, “The O’Reilly Factor,” was a cash cow for Fox, but the payouts, coupled with a loss of advertisers, put the network in a dilemma over whether to keep the popular host. In the end, Fox News and O’Reilly decided to part ways. How will conservative news consumers respond?
