EXCLUSIVE: Syndicators Show Little Interest in a Glenn Beck Talker
It doesn't look like Glenn Beck will be battling Katie Couric in the syndication wars anytime soon.

While Fox News and Beck are parting ways, the host's clear conservative bent makes him an unlikely prospect to host a syndicated talk show, say several syndicators.

Beck's representatives actively reached out to potential distributors about a year ago, said one source, but found no interest at that time.

The most likely candidate to try a daytime talker with the now-former Fox News star would be Twentieth Television and the Fox Television Stations, both of which, like Fox News, are owned by News Corp. However, Fox News chose to part ways with the host of its third-highest rated primetime show, according to sources, and isn't eager to get back into business with Beck at the moment.

Go, Glenn, go! I'm sure all 5 of your fans will cherish it!

2. I seriously doubt it's because of his "conservative bent"
It's because he spouts 1000% bullshit for the sole purpose of deluding and stirring up the crazies.

3. If you're too much trouble, you're too much trouble. Doesn't matter HOW MUCH money is involved.
When the big boys start thinking Return-On-Investment, versus all the agony that goes with a lightening-rod-for-shit like glenn beck, it won't matter what kind of star power he has (or thinks he has). He just comes with too much baggage now. Too many negatives, and they're high-enough negatives that they do not cancel out any perceived future benefits.
