    Glenn Beck to leave Fox News show by year's end to develop new projects

    Glenn Beck and the Fox News Channel are giving up on his nightly show.

    Later this year - a specific date was not disclosed - the controversial host will leave the show, and instead, work on unspecified projects down the road.

    The parting comes after weeks of speculation about the relationship between Beck and brass at the cable news network, where his popular show - while very strong - had lost some of its luster.

    "I truly believe that America owes a lot to Roger Ailes and Fox News," Beck said in a statement. "I cannot repay Roger for the lessons I've learned and will continue to learn from him and I look forward to starting this new phase of our partnership."

    Ratings for his show are off nearly 40% year-to-year. More importantly, advertisers would not buy in, and he'd become a lightning rod for watchdog groups.

    For instance, Media Matters for America had made Beck a daily punching bag, picking apart whatever the host said to stir up its followers.

    Fox News, along with Beck's Mercury Radio Arts production company, will work together to produce a variety of television projects for Fox News and other platforms, according to the announcement.

    "Glenn Beck is a powerful communicator, a creative entreprenuer and a true success by anybody's standards," Ailes said in a statement. "I look forward to continuing to work with him."

    Joel Cheatwood, senior vice president of development at Fox News, will join Mercury Radio Arts on April 24.

    Beck's nightly show launched on Fox News 27 months ago. He joined Fox after a run on HLN.

    His show averaged more than 2.2 million viewers during his time on Fox, though had dropped in the last year.

    His syndicated radio show is one of the most popular in the country. Outside of radio and TV, he's also a best-selling author and a participant in a comedy tour.

    In fact, Beck will be on tour next week. His time slot will be filled by Judge Andrew Napolitano and Eric Bolling, and each could be potential long-term replacements.

    Daytime anchor Megyn Kelly is also considered a candidate to take over the 5 p.m. time slot when Beck exits.i

        I wonder is Sarah Palin will replace him?
