Bill has been the undisputed king of cable news, and for good reason. He is an incredibly talented broadcaster who raised the bar for interviewers everywhere. He has also held his staff to exacting standards in his quest to put the best possible program on the air, and they are great. And you, his audience, responded in record numbers, making 'The Factor' the number one cable news show for more than 16 years. You have also been loyal, and we can't tell you how much that means to everyone on 'The Factor.'"
