Glenn Beck’s Daily Fox News Show is Ending
Despite his numerous denials, the rumors about Glenn Beck’s show being on the chopping block were accurate: Glenn Beck to End Daily Fox News Program.
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. The statement did not specify an end date for the show, called “Glenn Beck,” which has been telecast at 5 p.m. on Fox News since early 2009.
Fox News and Mercury Radio Arts, which have sometimes 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. …
The statement was briefly posted on The Blaze, a Web site owned by Mr. Beck, but it was then taken down. Representatives for Fox and Mr. Beck did not immediately explain why.
In August 2009, I asked the question, “Is there a point at which most reasonable people will start realizing that Glenn Beck is a raving freakazoid nut sandwich?”
This led to Beck calling me out by name on his show. It took a year and a half after that to reach Peak Beck, but he who laughs last, laughs best.
