Conservative broadcaster Glenn Beck is considering leaving the Fox News Channel to launch his own TV channel, The New York Times reports. Beck has been contemplating such a move for more than a year, sources told the Times.
Beck has a contract with Fox the ends in December, and he issued a statement Tuesday night that did not directly address his future broadcasting plans: “Roger Ailes has built the most important voice in America today — Fox News — and it is an honor to do my show there every night. I have no intention whatsoever of doing the show I am doing now on Fox anywhere else.”
Speculation on Beck leaving Fox has heightened since his media company, Mercury Radio Arts, started adding new staff and generating new content.
Interesting… any truth to this?
