Breaking: Glenn Beck leaving Fox? Update: Seems confirmed

posted at 1:02 pm on April 6, 2011 by Jazz Shaw

Picked up the latest hit off the rumor mill from James Joyner, along with about two hundred people on Twitter all at once.

Details are sketchy right now but NPR’s David Folkenflik reports that Glenn Beck is ending his weekday show on Fox when his contract ends in December but will perform “special projects” for the network.

Of course, rumors have been flying for some time that Beck has been considering launching his own network. And if Oprah took “OWN” for a name, I suppose Glenn could go with GBN. Who will replace Beck at Fox? I’ve already submitted Ed Morrissey’s name, and I bet he’d do it for half the price. I also saw the name of Alex Jones floating around.

Until we see some official confirmation, treat this as still being in the grain of salt category, but it’s as good a reason as any for an open thread. So… what are the inevitable one liners which will come from this announcement if it happens?

  • It’s a tragedy. Now Jon Stewart will only have enough material for one show a week.
  • Oliver Willis is crying quietly somewhere, wondering what to do with his afternoons.
  • Chalk board sales plummet. More layoffs expected.

UPDATE: The OTB post has been updated with a link from the Gray Lady saying the story has been confirmed by Fox and Beck’s people.

He’s not leaving…just changing things up a bit. See the press release at http://www.businessinsider.com/glenn-beck-leaving-fox-news-at-end-of-the-year-2011-4

lyfsatrip on April 6, 2011 at 1:06 PM

Glad to see him go. I may or may not have agreed with opinions and topics. He just presented himself in such an over the top, arrogant and condescending manner, he made himself unwatchable. Since I never really watched him, can’t possible miss him.

Tommy_G on April 6, 2011 at 1:06 PM

It was obvious to anyone who listened to his radio show yesterday that he was leaving Fox News. He in effect said ‘The left will take credit for me leaving the show, but don’t believe it.’

classicaliberal on April 6, 2011 at 1:06 PM

Oprah got her OWN network after 25 years, and it’s still not doing that well. If this is axcurate, and Beck’s decision, it seems unwise.

YYZ on April 6, 2011 at 1:07 PM

NYT reports it as a joint Fox/Beck (Media Arts) announcement.

I only watched his show for the first month or so it was on. Too boring and redundant. Don’t watch Hannity that much anymore either, unless Rove or Morris is on.

I watch O’reilly and Baier every day and I never miss Chris Wallace on Sunday. Also like Stossel specials.

My guilty pleasure is watching the Daily Show with Stewart. :)

Kini on April 6, 2011 at 1:13 PM

I like Beck a lot and watched daily for over a year. But, I stopped watching. I know things are bad, and there was only so much I could take (and it was starting to affect me personally). That, and he started to develop a tendency to latch onto some rather absurd inflation numbers around food. Is inflation coming? Sure. Will coffee cost 70+ dollars a pound? Highly doubt it. 10 maybe, 70 no. I decided I had had enough at that point.

cktheman on April 6, 2011 at 1:13 PM

Good business move for Beck. He really no longer needs Fox. He is creating a business model independent of delivery channel that will be protected from fairness doctrine creep.

Can’t wait for the hysterical headlines announcing the death of conservative media. Ha!

They should replace him with Olby. It would be worth it to hear millions of lefty voices, all screeching in unison about Fox News, suddenly go silent. Media Matters would practically have to disband. Plus, Olby and O’Reilly could have a weekly segment together and argue over who thinks Obama is more awesomer.

Talk about counter productive to what they’ve accomplished in 3 years. If so, it’s a stupid move on Alies part…. Beck’s ratings are solid and pay for themselves.

OR – they’ve got a much larger rabbit waiting in the hole. I can’t imagine that Murdoch or Alies plans to give Soros and the Obama Admin exactly what it wants.

He might be over the top, but he’s effective. He’s organized and he provides resources. He can make a 40 year old biography hit #1 on Amazon faster than Oprah can hit send to her Book Club. Heck, my teenage son sets aside an hour every afternoon to watch Beck and has used many of his resources in papers at school and to rebut “what’s in the textbooks”.

You’re correct. With Beck leaving, Hannity is about the only conservative left. The only problem with Sean: he’s unwatchable.

How many products does Hannity shill for? He has about as much credibility as Nancy Pelosi. “This is your friend, Sean Hannity.” I never met you; how can you be my friend.

That “gotcha” is getting old.
Like when someone says they won’t watch some porn show, and the person says “If you don’t watch it, then how do you know it’s bad”…but if he watches it and determines it’s bad, then the statement is “Well it can’t be that bad if you watched it”.
I have seen snippets of Beck, and he is unwatchable, couldn’t bring myself even to tolerate a whole show, he was so remarkably illogical, wrong on so many issues, but he is a great showman and hustler.

right2bright on April 6, 2011 at 1:19 PM

This is a mistake for Beck, turning away from all the resources and personalities at Fox. It is not as if I will change my cable package to follow him anywhere.

I say rework the Fox schedule for those of us on the west coast, so that Special Report is not stupidly on at 3:00 and 11:00 PM and the Leprechaun on at 5:00 and again at 8:00 PM.

Give Laura Ingraham another shot…….screw Shep and his eye-shadow.

thefoxnation has this up now on Glenn. Glenn is a very smart man, many here don’t agree, and will make a move for the better for him. I do know Glenn has health issues and maybe this could be one of the reasons for the move. If he starts his own show we will watch him even if we have to pay for the channel.

Hannity preaches that he’s a Conservative first, Republican second, but his typical guest list belies that.

NoNails on April 6, 2011 at 1:23 PM

I love Beck, and I’ve follow him for years on the radio in Philly, and when he was on Headline News from the Communist News Network. His sho(e) on Fox is great. It was (is, past tense) educational, insightful, extremely extreme.

Remember, Beck broke the Shirley Sherrod story for what it really was, and he’s brought many other stories that you just don’t find anywhere else. It’s refreshingly refreshing.

Those that haven’t watched Beck, or form opinions without any knowledge of his radio and TV broadcasts are… maroons.

Kini on April 6, 2011 at 1:23 PM

Beck Defeats Olbermann, Retires From TV!

cartooner on April 6, 2011 at 1:24 PM

Big loss for his audience. I couldn’t stand the full diet every day, but he had some wonderfully informative and educational shows that made people finally stand up and take notice of what is actually going in in this country. His history lessons were great. Did any of you see his show the past two weeks about the Fed? Maybe most of you know this, but I didn’t, that the Fed is not part of the government, is privately owned, and nobody knows who owns it? If it hadn’t been for him, think of all that we wouldn’t know about Obama and his administration. He is a patriot for what he has done and has endangered his life doing it. He is owed our gratitude for exposing so much. However, a steady diet of it is depressing, but so is everything going on in our country right now.

silvernana on April 6, 2011 at 1:24 PM

Given Beck’s reported health problems, this can’t be too surprising.

lorien1973 on April 6, 2011 at 1:25 PM

I hope it’s just another NYT propaganda release. As an atheist I don’t share Beck’s religious lens on events but I still enjoy his show most of the time. If they’re getting rid of him in response to pressure from the Left, that would be harmful to FNC’s reputation, I think.

FloatingRock on April 6, 2011 at 1:25 PM

This is from the New York Times. How Howard could be treating this as a serious news piece is beyond me. It’s probably some NYT copy boy’s fantasy that Beck would get canned.

He’s not retreating, he’s reloading:

FOX NEWS AND MERCURY RADIO ARTS ANNOUNCE NEW AGREEMENT
(New York, NY) Fox News and Mercury Radio Arts, Glenn Beck’s production company, are proud to announce that they 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. Glenn intends to transition off of his daily program, the third highest rated in all of cable news, later this year.
Roger Ailes, Chairman and CEO of Fox News said, “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. ”

Glenn Beck said: “I truly believe that America owes a lot to Roger Ailes and Fox News. I cannot repay Roger for the lessons I’ve learned and will continue to learn from him and I look forward to starting this new phase of our partnership.”
Joel Cheatwood, SVP/Development at Fox News, will be joining Mercury Radio Arts effective April 24, 2011. Part of his role as EVP will be to manage the partnership and serve as a liaison with the Fox News Channel.

Roger Ailes said: “Joel is a good friend and one of the most talented and creative executives in the business. Over the past four years I have consistently valued his input and advice and that will not stop as we work with him in his new role.”

“Glenn Beck” is consistently the third highest rated program on cable news.
For the 27 months that “Glenn Beck” has aired on Fox News, the program has averaged more than 2.2 million total viewers and 563,000 viewers 25-54 years old, numbers normally associated with shows airing in primetime, not at 5pm. “Glenn Beck” has dominated all of its cable news competitors since launch.

He’s formed a partnership with FOX instead of being a FOX employee. If anyone has ever caught any of his documentaries, you will know that is where his true power lies. The ones he does for FOX and the mini documentaries he’s done on his website are spectacular. If that is going to be his focus from this point on, then George Soros is screwed.

mizflame98 on April 6, 2011 at 1:30 PM

Awesome; the guys a great radio host, way too much on tv.

I always considered Beck interesting, in a Chinese sort of way…and that’s not always a good thing, eh?

She is a wannabe, who has sold herself as a law student going to a top law school (I had to teach her what tier 1 or tier 2 law schools were, a real indication of her “inconsistency”).

NTWR on April 6, 2011 at 1:38 PM

Maybe Beck is going to start a news channel that presents facts and digs deep for the meaning and effect of things and the connections among self interested parties. I’ve disagreed with Beck at times on several issues, and don’t especially like his style. But he does superior research and generally gets things correct. Fans of big government, corporate cronyism, socialism in all its forms and political hacks will not like something of that nature and will call it ‘conservative extremism’, but who cares? They do that anyway. I hope he does something like this.

annoyinglittletwerp@1:31,
Nice to hear you are moving to TX. We are usually nice people here. It is different state than IL though.

I also saw the name of Alex Jones floating around.

Oh dear God

No real law student states what she has stated, I have caught her in many, well let’s just say, many inconsistencies. Ones that watching both of my kids go through law school would have never ever made.

That’s interesting. Could you provide a link to some examples?

She is a wannabe, who has sold herself as a law student going to a top law school (I had to teach her what tier 1 or tier 2 law schools were, a real indication of her “inconsistency”).

When exactly did you do that?

If that is going to be his focus from this point on, then George Soros is screwed.

Remember this headline from yesterday? Hmmm…

I never believed she went to a real law school (except for maybe an online one based in Algeria or someplace like that) because she spends way too much time posting here. I have a few friends who are lawyers and when they went through law school, they barely had enough time to eat and crap, let alone waste time trolling a blog with inane comments.

Beck did not say Coffee would be $70, he said NIA (National Inflation Association) said it would be. Big difference.

The very next day after Beck showed products and how their prices would skyrocket, Trump was on Fox repeating some of the same numbers.

This will work well for Glenn Beck. The 5PM slot is not convenient for many people that work and he can focus on doing longer productions that people can plan to watch.

As far as filling the slot – put Hannity there and fill his slot with someone who actually has a brain. Sean is great at repeating what others have stated – nothing new or cerebral from him. He CONSTANTLY interrupts people and seems to be going steady with Newt Gingrich.

Good luck Glenn – you’ve encouraged more people to read the Constitution and Bill of Rights than any other person on TV.
