NEW YORK — Glenn Beck will leave his Fox News Channel show this year, although an announcement from the network and his production company today did not include his final departure date.
In a joint news release, the network and Beck’s Mercury Radio Arts announced
that Fox News and his company 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.”
Beck became a sensation almost immediately after jumping from HLN to Fox for an
afternoon program. But his viewership has declined lately, The Associated Press
Among other things, he had faced an advertiser boycott that
limited the amount of companies that wanted to be a part of his show after
saying President Barack Obama had a “deep-seated hatred for white people.”
Beck’s statement expressed gratitude to Fox News chief Roger Ailes “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.”
**Note – The following is an opinion on the above article:
Many Christian viewers of Beck’s show, expressed frustration with Beck and stopped watching his show, after his big powwow on the Lincoln Memorial where he expressed his alignment with the Morman belief that we can express our spiritual deity and bring God’s kingdom to earth.
Many Christians only started listening to him because of a Christian named Brannon Howse who had been communicating with Glenn Beck for years and trying to witness to him. Howse appreciated Beck’s stand for the truth and fed him many important pieces of information that made it to Beck’s tv show.
If Beck had stuck with his original platform and avoided his new spritualistic Mormon propoganda there wouldn’t have been the fallout of viewers over the last six months.
