New Weekly Program Will Explore the Most Important News and Issues of the Week, Featuring Exclusive Interviews with America’s Top Personalities from Sports, Entertainment and Politics
New York City, September 13, 2022 – Bill O’Reilly, award-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author, today announced he’s hosting a new original TV series, “Shock and Awe,” exclusively on Vidgo, America’s premiere cost-friendly streamer for live sports, news and entertainment. The series debuts with 40 weekly shows on Vidgo with the initial episode that began airing on September 9th, dedicated to the opening weekend of the football season featuring some of the greatest players of all time discussing football’s physical toll. The September 16th show will look at the Biden presidency and see how it stacks up versus others. Top presidential historians will be guests.
As the streaming industry’s value platform, Vidgo’s first exclusive and original series, Bill O’Reilly’s “Shock and Awe,” will break down the most critical issues of the week in his signature, no-spin style that made him the number one cable TV journalist. The new series will feature O’Reilly’s famously bold questions, unflinching delivery and exclusive interviews with America’s best-known personalities and newsmakers, making it must-watch programming.
“Vidgo is the future of information and entertainment. It will provide reasonable cost streaming with smart, unique content. ‘Shock and Awe’ will deliver timely interviews and analysis with the most intelligent people in the world. Our first program discusses football violence with Joe Namath and Rob Gronkowski. We’ll deliver important content every week,” O’Reilly said.
O’Reilly hosted The O’Reilly Factor, the highest-rated cable show for 16 years, and is described as “the biggest star in the 20-year history of Fox News.” In addition, he served as executive producer for the Emmy-nominated films Killing Kennedy (2014) and Killing Jesus (2015) — both based on books in his Killing series. O’Reilly has topped the New York Times Best Sellers list 18 times — with all 11 books in his Killing series, including this year’s Killing the Killers.
