Earlier today, Deadline reported that two of Fox News' most recognizable faces, Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity, are getting ready to close new multi-year deals with the station.

Townhall has confirmed the Deadline report with Fox News.

According to the original story, the deals mean that both hosts will celebrate their 20-year anniversaries and beyond with the network:
 

"O’Reilly and Hannity have been key to FNC’s primetime ratings dominance. O’Reilly’s The O’Reilly Factor is the highest rated show in cable news, a position it has held for 125 consecutive months, followed by Hannity. On Monday, The O’Reilly Factor drew 2.8 million viewers and Hannity 2.1 million for another 1-2 finish among all cable news programs."
