Bill O'Reilly is hinting that he may soon give up his top-rated prime time show on the Fox News Channel.

In an interview published in AdWeek this week, the 66-year-old broadcaster was asked how much longer he wanted to do his nightly news and opinion program, which has been the highest-rated cable news show for 16 years.

"I don't know. I go day to day. I don't want to work this hard much longer. I know that," O'Reilly told AdWeek's Chris Ariens.

"Because I work hard. I earn my money. But the shocking thing to me is nobody beats me. These young gunslingers, they should be kind of beating me — but they're not."

Asked who will be the "next Bill O'Reilly," he answered, "I don't wish that on anyone. I think everybody has their own unique presentation. There will be somebody that comes. But it's not as easy as it looks."

O'Reilly's contract runs through 2017.

His hint at retirement is the second bombshell to hit Fox News this month, following the explosive sexual harassment lawsuit filed against Fox News chief Roger Ailes by former Fox personality Gretchen Carlson.
