Glenn Beck sets Fox News bow

Conservative's new show to debut Jan. 19

Cable yakker Glenn Beck, most recently on CNN Headline News, will bow his new show on Fox News Channel on Jan. 19 in the 5 p.m. ET timeslot.

The new show — dubbed “Glenn Beck,” as it was on CNN — will feature “a variety of guests and topics from the political, entertainment and business news worlds utilizing Beck’s unconventional perspective of the day’s top stories,” FNC announced Monday.

Gresham Striegel will be senior producer.

On Headline News, Beck’s hourlong show, which aired at 7 p.m. and again at 9, doubled its audience in its most recent year. Beck, a conservative commentator, reportedly left CNN over a dispute in contract negotiations involving the 9 p.m. rebroadcast. He announced in October that he would leave Headline News for FNC.

At the time, Beck’s contract with CNN extended into February 2009, but insiders say he was able to leave the network earlier.

In its last months, the Headline News show was drawing 375,000 total viewers at 7 p.m. and 485,000 at 9 p.m., according to Nielsen.
