Glenn Beck from the Fox News Channel is leaving the Fox offices in New York for the countryside. His media company has started building a television and a radio studio in Dallas, according to Associated Press.
The television personality has decided to leave the Big Apple quarters of Fox News for the more loose ones in Texas. His new television network is named GBTV and will host a show of two hours which will be hosted by the boss himself. The new TV show will start airing in late summer. Until then, don’t despair, you will have the chance to hear him on the radio as Beck is continuing his syndicated radio show.
However, Mercury Radio Arts, the president of Glenn Beck’s company states that the offices in Dallas will not make the ones in New York ineffective. They are not going to be abandoned.
Glenn Beck had success written all over him since his first day at Fox. He doubled the audience almost immediately after being welcomed in the team, in January 2009. However, he lost most of his audience and advertisers in the summer of 2010 when he said during the show that President Barack Obama had “ a deep seated hatred for white people.” His racial comment put an end to his until then high rated show, which was aired until June.
Glenn Beck, who is 47 years old, has written six books until now. All of them were ranked as bestsellers by the New York Times. His company, Mercury Radio Arts is a multimedia production company which provides materials in several media areas: radio, television, publishing, online and on stage.
Beck has both critics and supporters, like all celebrities. His supporters see him as a constitutional stalwart who speaks for the traditional values of the Americans, while his critics accuse him of starting conspiracy theories and turns simple things inco incendiary subjects for one purpose only: the ratings.
