SF station bumps O'Reilly to late night
Bill O'Reilly (pictured), who says the government shouldn't defend San Francisco from Al Qaeda and has frequently sparred with the city's leaders, has been bumped to late night by KNEW-AM 910. When it first went on the air in 2002, O'Reilly's "Radio Factor" aired in the mornings from 9 to 11, but was clobbered by KGO's Ronn Owens and KSFO's Rush Limbaugh. In late 2004, the station moved him to the 7-9 p.m. slot. Then, on Monday, KNEW bumped O'Reilly to the 9-11 p.m. position. O'Reilly, who remains the top-rated cable news host, made headlines last November when he said the federal government should stop defending San Francisco because the city's voters approved a resolution against military recruiting at high schools.
