Before being elected to his first term as Governor of Ohio, John Kasich worked for Fox News, hosting Heartland with John Kasich from 2001 to 2007 and was a fill-in host for The O'Reilly Factor. He also worked as an investment banker, serving as managing director of the Lehman Brothers office in Columbus, Ohio.

When Kasich ran for president in 2016, Bill O'Reilly admitted to advising the presidential candidate and former Fox colleague. O'Reilly said, "I know him really well, and I told him, I said look, with 17 competitors you're going to have to break out."
