Glenn Beck to end Fox program

Statement from both sides says that Beck "work together to develop and produce a variety of television projects for air on the Fox News Channel as well as content for other platforms including Fox News' digital properties." No date set for the final show, though Beck's contract with Fox ends in December. From NYT:

Mr. Beck has been contemplating an exit from Fox for some time. 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. His company has been staffing up -- making Web shows, some of which have little or nothing to do with Mr. Beck, and charging a monthly subscription for access to the shows.
