Glenn Beck to Leave Fox News

By Brian Stelter | The New York Times - 4/6/11

 

Glenn Beck will end his daily Fox News Channel program later this year.

His departure was jointly announced in a statement on Wednesday by Fox and Mr. Beck’s company, Mercury Radio Arts.

 

Fox News and Mercury Radio Arts, which have clashed over the making of “Glenn Beck,” will “work together to develop and produce a variety of television projects for air on the Fox News Channel as well as content for other platforms including Fox News’ digital properties,” the companies said in the statement.

 

As expected, a senior Fox News executive, Joel Cheatwood, will join Mr. Beck at Mercury Radio Arts starting later this month.

 

The joint statement did not specify an end date for Mr. Beck’s show, called “Glenn Beck,” which has been telecast at 5 p.m. on Fox News since early 2009. Asked if Fox News had a rough end date for “Glenn Beck,” a spokeswoman referred back to the statement. Mr. Beck’s contract with Fox ends in December.

Glenn Beck

I am wondering if Mr. Beck was let go or is he leaving because he wanted to?  If Fox News let him go but yet offered a job to that uber-liberal idiot, Juan Williams, then I am truly disappointed in Fox News!  If you keep the likes of Juan Williams and that other giant idiot, Alan Colmes, but let Glenn Beck go, then Fox News is the idiot!!

Glenn leaving Fox

I am so sad to hear of Glenn leaving his program. He is great, and I will miss his educational programs every nite. Glenn I will listen to you everyday on the radio.


This makes me so upset to hear you are leaving. I can't get over it.
