Glenn Beck joins Fox News

Glenn Beck, whose conservative news-talk show has been one of the key building blocks of the Beck revitalized nighttime programming bloc on CNN Headline News, is jumping ship. Beck on Thursday signed a multi-year deal with Fox News and will move over to the competitor next spring. Beck, whose show airs daily at 7 p.m. Eastern time with a repeat at 9 p.m., will take over the 5 p.m. slot at Fox News as well as doing a weekend show.

Beck and Nancy Grace's vigilante crime-talk show that follows it have been a major boon to CNN Headline News nighttime ratings, which were dropping to almost unmeasurable levels before the two show personality-driven programs replaced the channel's regular 15-minute news roundups. Beck's ratings have grown about 200 percent since his show launched in 2006. He's also got a radio talk show syndicated by the Premiere network that's the third-most-listened-to program among adults aged 25 to 54.

Glen Beck. Mormon. On Fox where his kind belongs.

What's wrong with being a Mormon? FYI, Fox is not a mormon station it is a news station.
