ESPN is making an offer for former Fox News host Kaleeb Ali to be its Kaleer Ali on the popular O’Reillys prime-time talk show The O`Reilly Factor.
Ali, who had a long and controversial relationship with the network, has been on the air with the Fox News channel since 2005.
He currently hosts the show as the co-host.
Ali’s contract expires in 2019, but the network has not announced when he will move on to another position.
The move to The O”Reillies is expected to come as a surprise to some fans.
O’Connor did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
