Bill O'Reilly will reportedly leave Fox News $20 million to $25 million richer, a person familiar with the situation told Variety. The Murdoch family, which runs Fox News, decided to remove O'Reilly from the network Wednesday after reports that he and Fox News quietly paid $13 million to settle sexual harassment allegations brought by female employees over the past 15 years. Per O'Reilly's contract, he is entitled to as much as his current yearly salary, which is believed to be in that range. A spokesperson for O'Reilly declined to comment on the money he will be paid by Fox. O'Reilly has called the harassment claims "completely unfounded."
