O’Reilly Leaving Radio to Focus on TV ShowLooks like Bill O'Reilly is preparing for the Obama era -- he says he's been working too many hours. Whatever the reason, the Fox News heavy is giving up his syndicated radio show to focus his energies on "The O'Reilly Factor."

Wait, before you go…
New York Daily News:
O’Reilly said the radio show, which he launched in May 2002, will end “in the first quarter of next year.” Most of the time he saves, he said, will go into his top-rated Fox News Channel show.
“The media business is getting more and more intense,” O’Reilly said Thursday. “We’ve got to keep the TV show at the level we have it now, and that means more and more time to keep it competitive and fresh. I’ve been working 60, 65 hours a week and I just can’t keep doing that.”
