After more than two years of hosting his controversial Fox News show, Glenn Beck and his employers announced they would be separating.
While Fox News president and chair Roger Ailes was unclear as to the reason they would be parting ways, many suggest that it’s based on advertisers leaving Beck’s time slot.

“More than 300 advertisers fled the Beck show, but he still delivered a huge lead-in audience for Bret Baier and others who followed him on the Fox lineup,” Howard Kurtz wrote in the Daily Beast.
Roger Ailes, the former Republican political consultant who chairs Fox News, said: “Glenn Beck is a powerful communicator, a creative entrepreneur and a true success by anybody’s standards. I look forward to continuing to work for him.”
