Webb Shares Tales of Replacing Fox’s Bill O’Reilly at 7News

Is former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly the most hated man in television? In 1978, Pete Webb of Webb Strategic Communications replaced O’Reilly as 7News’s investigative reporter, and he tells Michael Roberts of Westword that O’Reilly was, in fact, a jerk:

According to (Webb,) a former co-worker in Denver, O’Reilly was widely disliked at the station because of behavior that could be rude, egomaniacal and underhanded, and on multiple occasions, he was pranked by colleagues who left aromatic food to rot in his desk.

“He was a hugely disruptive influence in the newsroom, and few people liked or tolerated him,” Webb maintains. “He was argumentative, difficult to manage and would literally steal other people’s stories. In fact, he’d answer a call for a reporter and say, ‘He’s out right now, what can you tell me?,’ and end up with a story intended for someone else.”
