Fox News Channel is on the verge of keeping two of its most famous faces around for the foreseeable future.

Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity are about to sign multiyear deals within the next week, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In the story, a Fox rep confirmed to the publication that the two hosts are wrapping up long-term, multimillion-dollar deals that will keep them at the top-rated cable news network.

Both O’Reilly and Hannity host the top two broadcasts on cable news, with “The O’Reilly Factor” on a streak of 125 months as the top-rated new program.

Both personalities were with FNC when the channel launched October 1996, and the new deals are expected to take both of them past the 20-year mark with the network.
