After The Hollywood Reporter reported on Tuesday that UTA will no longer represent Bill O'Reilly on television projects, on Thursday the agency WME announced in a statement that it will not represent him on future book projects.

"We no longer represent Bill O'Reilly for future deals," WME said in a statement. "It is our fiduciary responsibility to service the existing deals we have under contract, but we will not be working with him moving forward."

On Monday evening, UTA informed the former Fox News host that it would no longer be representing him when his agreement with the company expires at the end of the year. O'Reilly has long been a client of N.S. Bienstock Agency, which was acquired by UTA in 2014.

Months after his departure from Fox News, O'Reilly is once again in the hot seat after The New York Times reported over the weekend that he personally forked over $32 million to a former Fox News analyst to settle a claim she made against him. O'Reilly has said that he's being unfairly attacked by a publication that wants to hurt his career.
