Bye Bye Blackboard–Glenn Beck Leaves Fox TV
By: Stephanie Berning
Glenn Beck and his trusty blackboard will make their last appearance on Fox News Thursday evening.
Beck is leaving Fox News to start his own online network, GBTV, and will begin streaming two-hour live shows in September for a fee. He will continue a separate syndicated radio program.
Beck was popular with Tea Party activists and conservatives, but his ratings began dropping and critics urged advertisers to boycott his show last summer after he said President Barack Obama had a “deep-seated hatred for white people.”
