Fox News and its Fox News Now streaming service are still in a perpetual state of evolution, with no clear end in sight.
That’s especially true with the news network’s recent moves to build out its digital-first, ad-free model.
With the network’s upcoming upfronts, it appears as though the network is going to continue to build its digital reach through a combination of new content and existing shows.
The biggest news of all, however, is that the Fox network’s biggest stars are going to be staying put.
On the same day that Fox News announced it will no longer be rolling out its online video service to subscribers, host Bill O’Reilly announced that he’s moving his daytime talk show from Fox News to the new Fox News Digital platform.
The move is an interesting one, as O’Connor is a former Fox News executive who previously ran the digital news channel for many years.
The show will likely continue to air on Fox News’ own streaming service, as the network hasn’t yet confirmed the new platform’s existence.
O’Conner, who’s also the executive producer of Fox News’s digital product, explained in an interview with The Verge that the new network will provide “more of the same” in terms of content and coverage.
The news of O’Donnell’s move came on the same afternoon that The Washington Post reported that Fox’s chief content officer, David Martosko, had resigned amid sexual harassment allegations.
A former employee at the company told the Post that Martosky made unwanted advances toward her in his office, and the employee filed a sexual harassment complaint against him in February.
Martoski was fired from Fox in February, and a former employee told the outlet that Martsko told her to “go to hell.”
Fox has yet to confirm the report.
Fox’s new online video platform, Fox News DC, was also announced last week.
It will offer content from the network and other cable news outlets.
In addition to Fox News, the site also includes CNBC, Fox Business, The Daily Caller, and Fox Sports.
Other networks, like Fox News Kids, Fox Sports Kids, and Family Channel, also appear to be in the mix for the digital-only platform.
If the news is true, it will likely mean that The O’Leary Report, a cable-news channel that has struggled to stay relevant in recent years, will get a shot at the digital space, as well.
In recent years The O’tricks have also been involved in the launch of the new Apple TV and the launch-day launch of Hulu Plus.
Both products appear to have had an impact on The O’s audience and the network.
But the news of Martosk’s departure has been a mixed bag for The O. Despite his departure, O’Connell is not expected to leave The O at this point.
While it’s unclear what O’Brien plans to do, it’s safe to say that the news has not been entirely lost on him.
“I’ve seen my show become the #1 cable news show,” O’Neill said in a statement.
“My kids are watching it.
I’ve watched my kids grow up, and now I’m leaving them with a new platform to watch their favorite shows.”
