Bill O'Reilly on VVH-TV's "American Dreams Show" with Ingrid Lemme,
Bill O'Reilly, probably the most controversial and most talked about TV journalist world wide, fulfilled a promise today (Sat. Sep 26th 2009) that he gave American Dream Show host Ingrid Lemme six years ago. He appeared on Ms Lemmes talk show, filmed at Gurneys Inn in Montauk, in front of a live audience and aired on WVVH Hamptons TV, tri-state N.Y. - the studio audience enjoyed a fabulous 30 minutes with Ingrid and "The No Spin Zone man who had the audience at times in tears, stunned or even hysterically laughing. Bill was certainly fresh, and bold in true Factor style, but at the same time quite charming. He signed books, granted the by invitation only audience photo opportunities and stayed for lunch with Gurneys CEO Paul Monte, CFO Gary Hodgins and Gurneys dream woman.

Hamptons TV owners Ernie and Greg Schimizzi said: Ingrid has moved American Dream to the next level - big time. Mr. O'Reilly enjoyed the interview and said he would like to come back on the show again

Bill's Biography
For more than eight consecutive years, an amazing 100+ months, The O'Reilly Factor on the FOX News Channel has been the highest rated of any cable news show. It is presided over by Bill O'Reilly, probably the most controversial, most frequently discussed TV journalist today.

The Factor, as most people call it, was designed to be--and remains--a unique blend of news analysis and hard hitting investigative reporting dropped each weeknight into "The No Spin Zone."

In addition to The O'Reilly Factor, Bill finds time to turn out a weekly column appearing in more than 300 newspapers, and to write books, the latest of which is a deeply personal and revealing memoir. O'Reilly explains the title came about when he remembered how one of his first teachers looked at him in class and said, "William, you are a bold fresh piece of humanity." And so that's what he named it--because A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity is what he truly is. And that's not surprising at all to Bill's millions of viewers, listeners and readers. Or to his often agitated critics.

The memoir, selling over 1 million copies and resting comfortably for many months high up on the New York Times top ten bestseller list, comes on the heels of Bill's four previous non-fiction works, all of which went to #1 on that same list. In addition, The O'Reilly Factor for Kids outsold all other children's non-fiction in 2005. All in all, more than 5 million copies of Bill's books are in circulation.

Bill was certainly fresh, and already bold, when he started his broadcasting career in Scranton, Pennsylvania before moving on to report and anchor in other places such as Dallas, Boston and New York. His national exposure began with CBS and ABC News, and as host of the first version of Inside Edition. It was in 1996 that O'Reilly landed at FOX News. Along the way, as Bill gained his considerable following, he has also accumulated more than his share of journalism awards, including 3 Emmys, with the latest being the special 2008 Governor's Award in his old Boston stomping ground.

O'Reilly was born in Manhattan and raised on Long Island. His Bachelor's degree is in History from Marist College, and he has a Master's in Broadcast Journalism from Boston University and another Master's Degree in Public Administration from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.

Asked about his proudest achievement on The Factor, Bill said, "The hundreds of thousands of dollars we are able to give to charity thanks to good folks buying stuff on www.BillOReilly.com ."
