Controversial Glen Beck will apparently be moving into other projects with Fox as his hour-long TV show runs its contractual course for this year.

In a statement, Roger Ailes (Fox News Channel CEO) said “Glenn Beck is a powerful communicator, a creative entrepreneur and a true success by anybody’s standards…I look forward to continuing to work with him.”

Beck returned the compliment in his statement with “I truly believe that America owes a lot to Roger Ailes and FOX News…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.”

Reportedly, Beck‘s TV revenues account for only a tidbit of his income, with the lionshare coming from books, syndicated radio, websites and more.

But Beck will still be using TV to do what many advertisers have been boycotting his show; for sticking his finger in the political and cultural left’s eye.
