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's leaving Fox has heightened since his media company, Mercury Radio Arts, started adding new staff and generating new content.
