say bye bye to bonkers Glenn Beck. His show on Fox will end this year
Glenn Beck to End Daily Fox News Program
By BRIAN STELTER
Glenn Beck.

1:00 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. Becks 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. Mr. Becks contract with Fox ends in December.

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.

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

6. Advertizing pressure.
I would suspect that the loss of big adverizers was a key component -- that in concert with dropping numbers. Fare thee well, Mr. Beck. Or not.

11. I never saw his show.
I'm only aware of who he is through the hysteria that surrounded him.
