(CNN) - Fox News Channel anchor Glenn Beck will end his daily show later this year to develop and produce a variety of television projects to air on the channel, according to a release Wednesday.
The new agreement between FNC and Mercury Radio Arts will ensure Beck appears on the television network and through other "digital properties."
"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," Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said in a statement.
"Glenn Beck" launched in 2009. The host previously hosted a show on CNN's sister network HLN.
Howard Kurtz, Washington bureau chief for The Daily Beast and host of CNN's "Reliable Sources" said the split was a "divorce many months in the making."
"By the end, both sides wanted out," Kurtz said in an email. "Beck's show proved too radioactive for Fox, and the network became an uncomfortable home for Glenn Beck."
Good riddance to bad rubbish and repeated lies and nonsense. Beck is an embarrassment to rational people everywhere.
Who cares – it’s not like the failing of Beck's show will suddenly cure or heal the morons he's cultivated into a herd of angry arrogant and ignorant sheepole.
Good riddance to this charlatan. Fox News will be a little less 'unbalanced' and 'unfair', now that this pathetic fraud is gone.
This oughta bring out the liberal wingnuts that congregate on CNN.com.
I feel some "crocodile tears" welling forth in my eyes. Boo-hoo!
Is abt time. the S O B knows nothing he talks abt every day, no back ground check what so ever, just open his wide mouth and spreed evil to his raciest listeners who enjoy nothing but intimidation. tnx jon steward and colbeth for calling the bastard out every night
Good riddance. Fox News will be a little less 'unbalanced' and 'unfair', now that this fraud is gone.
There is a GOD!!!
I am so happy that he is gone! I am not sure FOX hired him in the first place.
"Too radioactive for FOX" now thats funny. Too many fairytales for the land of make-believe.I guess even LIARS have their limits. My guess is it's all about the money/ratings. Like everything else.
I am sad to see Glenn Beck go, but sounds like he isn't going too far. Best wishes and good luck, GB...keep up the good work
OMG! Whatever will I watch now when I need to see a grown man sniveling and sobbing as he misquotes recorded history?
Bye-Bye Beck. You won't be missed.
His show was a waste. He only created division on political issues. The entire political make up of Fox News is divisive politics.
Mr. Beck. I used to watch you on CNN till tiring of the misinformation. The pledge of allegiance statement "One nation under God" you claimed as always there since the beginning was the last propaganda piece I near vomited back up. The sad part is much of the country absorbs your brand of truth and vote accordingly subjecting the nation to governance by equally harmful lies from children in congress. You do a tremendous amount of damage to this nation to make a big buck as a “patriot” of distortion and deception. Please fade away and let us heal thyself.
Glenn Beck is a recovering alcoholic, fearmonger, and commentator who spews his opinion as if it is fact.
Hardly a "success by anybody's standards"
Good riddance. Now, when's his radio show going off the air?
He was kick out... he he he he... even for FOX too ultra right winnut
Oh darn! Who will I ignore now?
YIPPEE!!!!!!! This guy is crazy.
Why is this in political news? Shouldn't it be in the entertainment section? Oh wait, same thing these days.
This from the man who admitted his platform is false by agreeing with O'Reilly he is a provacateur. Singing the same song months ago that trump is being ridiculed for now. There is not a sincere bone in this used car sales men's body. He is guilty of stagnating our national discourse with lies and infantile outburtsts designed to appeal to the lowest rung of his sewer audience, and for that, i pray he dies a very painful and prolonged death. He truly deserves it. Anyone who damages their own country with lies just for money should be put to death as a traitor.
But they were made for each other. One circus act supporting another circus act.
The difference between Beck and Olbermann...Beck is right about many things, but he comes off as a nut job....Keith was also right but not perceived as nuts by many. It was easy to dismiss Glenn, but keith was not seen as nuts...just too much truth for MSNBC to handle
Something became too radioactive for FOX NEWS?! Is.... is this a joke?
Because his ratings have tanked. The word was FOX was going to drop him anyway.
