If the reports are true, the Fox News Channel could be fighting with an upstart network for the conservative viewers.
Mediaite is reporting that executives are trying to put something together. And among the talent that could be available is Bill O'Reilly, who was let go by Fox last month. J. Christian Adams is a conservative attorney who appears on Fox regularly and says putting something like this together is easier said than done.
“It takes time, money and bandwidth. Fox is the only one with it compared to all of the other competitors right now,” Adams explained.
There's a thought by some that Fox may not be as Conservative as it used to be, but Adams hasn't noticed a change.
“I have not encountered, at least in the shows that I do, anything that indicates they are any different than they were two, three, or four years ago,” Adams said.
There are other new developments, too. Suzanne Scott has replaced Bill Shine, who resigned as FNC's Co-President. And the new network could go after KTRH's Sean Hannity, whose Fox deal isn't up until 2020. But Mediaite says he has a 'key man' clause that allows him to leave if a certain executive leaves. Hannity apparently can exercise that clause and give 60 days notice to Fox.
