Glenn Beck begins Fox News exit: ‘We’re not going to get anybody else into the boat at this point’

On Good Friday’s edition of his Fox News show, Glenn Beck began with, “The final chapter begins of ‘The Glenn Beck Program.’” Beck, in front of a studio audience and getting emotional — though no tears — said, “We’re not going to get anybody else into the boat at this point. I think now what we have to do is prepare to be different people.”

“But that doesn’t mean that we — at least me, it doesn’t mean that I want to lead and run for any office. It’s just time for me as a citizen to get involved more than I’m doing here. Because now, all I’m doing is preaching to the choir.”

Earlier this month, Fox News and Beck revealed his show would be going away. No final show date has been announced.
