After much success during his 27-month tenure at Fox News, averaging 2.2 million viewers and beating all cable news competitors, Glenn Beck will "transition off of his daily TV program," later this year to focus on new projects. According to a press release, Beck will still be working with Fox News, just not as an on-air personality. 

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.”
