Glenn Beck to End Daily Fox News Program - NYTimes.com
Not a fan of Beck, though I love how he gets under the skin of liberals, who in turn somehow support the psychopathically unstable Keith Olbermann.1:20 p.m. | Updated | 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.
I'm of the opinion that Fox needs to oust O'Reilly and Hannity as well, because neither offer the most cerebral take on a nightly basis. Their GUESTS do, but not them.
But then I turn over to the clown/freak show going on over at MSNBC, and I realize it can get much worse. Between Maddow's ever-growing Adam's apple and Chris Matthews constant spittle in the corners of his mouth, the pickins are slim.
