Beck said that up until recently, he did not control employment at TheBlaze, and he served as an adviser while the network sequestered their team into individual divisions. Beck eventually came right out and said “I would’ve fired [Lahren] the day I met her in the hallway.”

Beck told Ziegler that he advised TheBlaze’s management to cut ties with Lahren “from the beginning”, but he eventually gave up after Lahren ended up staying with the network for months. Beck described a phone call he eventually received where management informed him how they would take action and sever their connection with Lahren.
