This talk has been out there for a week and it’s now finalized. This is big news on every blog in the ethersphere; ours and the commies, both.
I”m sure that Van Jones and his Color of Change is planning a huge rally now and the spin will be that THEY won and pushed Beck out. Too bad too, because I know this was a business decision that Jones had nothing to do with.
It’ll be interesting to see what new plans Beck has and how Fox will fill in the time slot and the obvious void that will occur without Beck. This is going to cost Fox a lot of viewers, in the short term, at least and during his 5pm slot.
I do think that Beck is becoming too evangelical for a news channel – not that evangelical is a bad thing, it’s not. I”m a pretty religious person (something I keep pretty private) and I’ve noticed that Beck is leaning more and more to the ‘end of days’ evangelism that many people agree with and welcome. He’s given me plenty to think about and plan for. But I’m not sure that a news channel is the appropriate venue for that kind of thing.
I’ve learned a great deal from Beck and I know that he’s not going to be gone. We’ll just have to wait and see where he pops up next and what pops up with him.

Wow. This is truly news to many people. But I am sure Glenn Beck has a plan no one is aware of yet. Thanks!
BTW, I like your blog!!

There’s been a great deal of speculation on the ‘net about what Beck will do in the future, but like you, I’m sure he has something good in his future.
You have a really great blog too and I’m going to add you to my blog roll. You’re doing a great service and a great job! Keep up the work to get the message out!

There is a possibility that Beck will start his own network.

Beck fills an important role, not so much for Fox, perhaps, but for conservatives hungry for behind-the-scenes, connect-the-dot stories. I will miss him on Fox but it appears he isn’t leaving the media and I’m sure he’ll do great things, no matter the venue. I would like to see Fox move Judge Napolitano’s Freedom Watch over from Fox Business where right now he competes head-on with O’Reilly. Napolitano deserves a prime time slot on the Big Fox. Thanks for the alert, Roxy. I’ll be sure to tune Beck in today because I’m sure he’ll mention it.(don’t have time to watch everyday).

I learned a lot from his show. But if I have to pay for that in the future, I probably won’t.
I agree with moving the Judge over to that time slot. Good idea and I hope they do that.

Of course, the left will claim success for Beck leaving Fox but the truth is that it was just a matter of time before Beck moved on. Beck has outgrown Fox but Progressives will spread their lies and their clueless base will lap it up.
I watch Fox in the a.m., Megyn Kelly and Cavuto. Occasionally, O’Reilly but for the most part, I prefer Fox Business. No doubt Beck’s departure will have an affect on Fox’s ratings.
After all, that is exactly what Progressives are hoping for.
