Glenn Beck to ‘Transition Off’ Fox News Show

Glenn Beck will “transition off of his daily program” on Fox News later this year, according to a joint press release from Fox and Mercury Radio Arts, Beck’s production company.

The relationship between Beck and Fox News will continue, however. Mercury Radio Arts will work with Fox to “develop and produce a variety of television projects for air on the Fox News Channel well as content for other platforms,” including its digital properties, according to the release.

Beck’s show is the third highest rated on cable news, averaging more than 2 million viewers every day despite its 5 p.m. time slot. But it had been hemorrhaging viewers recently, and a campaign by liberal groups has kept major advertisers off the show.
