Glenn Beck Ending His Fox News Show

Bestselling author Glenn Beck will be ending his highly rated television show at Fox News Channel. This can only mean one thing: time to write more books.

The New York Times had the scoop: “Mr. Beck is a hugely popular figure on Fox News, averaging 2.2 million viewers a night, though his ratings have fallen somewhat in the last year … Two of the post-Fox options he has considered, according to people who have spoken about it with him, are a partial or wholesale takeover of a cable channel, or an expansion of his subscription video service on the Web.”

During Beck’s heyday in 2009, the host signed a multi-book deal with Simon & Schuster. Last year he sold 132,000 copies of The Overton Window in a single week.
