It has been announced that later this year, the Glenn Beck Show on Fox News will be coming to an end.
FOX News and Glenn Beck announced Wednesday that they will team to produce a slate of projects for FOX News Channel and FOX News’ digital properties.
Beck will “transition off of his daily program, the third highest rated in all of cable news, later this year” to pursue the new opportunities, FOX News said in a press release announcing the agreement.
“Glenn Beck is a powerful communicator, a creative entrepreneur and a true success by anybody’s standards. I look forward to continuing to work with him,” Roger Ailes, Chairman and CEO of FOX News, said in the release.
Joel Cheatwood, SVP/Development at FOX News, will be joining Beck’s production company, Mercury Radio Arts.
“I truly believe that America owes a lot to Roger Ailes and FOX News,” Beck said in the release. “I cannot repay Roger for the lessons I’ve learned and will continue to learn from him and I look forward to starting this new phase of our partnership.”
