Bill O'Reilly is ready to return to the airwaves for the first time since parting ways with Fox News last week.

The author and political commentator announced on his website that he will host a “No Spin News” podcast Monday, five days after his 20-year-run at Fox was ended by the network amid claims that he paid five women roughly $13 million to settle sexual harassment claims.

“Tonight. The No Spin News Returns — 7 p.m. Eastern,” the website message read. “Free through Sunday. Continues for premium members Monday, May 1.”

Mr. O'Reilly went on vacation April 11 as pressure built on Fox to cut ties over the harassment allegations. The network eventually agreed on April 19 to a $25 million buyout with the star, even as his fans stuck by his side; “The O’Reilly Factor” was averaging more than 4 million viewers per broadcast at the time of its cancellation.

“It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims,” Mr. O'Reilly said in a statement after his professional relationship with Fox ended. “But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today.”

The author’s latest book, “Old School: Life in the Sane Lane,” debuted on the New York Times’ best-seller list in early April.
