Report Beck May Launch His Own Cable Channel

If he fails to reach a contract-renewal agreement with Fox News by December, when his current contract expires, Glenn Beck plans either to start a new cable channel or expand his online subscription video service, the New York Times reported today (Wednesday), citing people who have discussed the matter with him. According to the newspaper, Beck has been contemplating his own cable channel for more than a year and might follow the road taken by Oprah Winfrey with her OWN cable network or by Martha Stewart, whose Martha Stewart Omnimedia produces a package of programs for the Hallmark Channel. In a statement to the Times , Beck said in part, "I have no intention whatsoever of doing the show I am doing now on Fox anywhere else." Commenting on the possible move, the Times observed, "Were Mr. Beck to set off on his own, it would be a landmark moment for the media industry, reflecting a shift in the balance of power between media institutions and the personal brands of people they employ."
