Glenn Beck Replaced By 'The Five' on Fox News
Just hours before the talk show host was to give his farewell on the cable channel, the network announced its summer plans for his 5pm timeslot.
Glenn Beck is being replaced on Fox News by The Five, a new show featuring a rotating cast of Fox personalities. Beck says adios to the cable channel Thursday.
The Five will fill Beck's 5 p.m. timeslot beginning July 11, and will feature a panel to "discuss, debate and at times debunk the hot news stories, controversies and issues of the day."
Fox News Channel's executive vp of programming Bill Shine said in a statement, "The Five brings together an eclectic group of Fox talent whose knowledge of key issues and unique insights will undoubtedly make for a dynamic program."
The weekly ensemble will include Greg Gutfeld, former NPR correspondent Juan Williams, Dana Perino, Andrew Napolitano, Geraldo Rivera and Monica Crowley.
The network will run encore presentations of The Glenn Beck Program from July 4 through July 8, and What Makes America Great hosted by John Stossel on Friday, July 1.
Beck is turning his attentions from Fox News to his new live streaming video network GBTV, which debuts in September.
The conservative pundit announced in April that he was ending his Fox News show; his contract was due to expire at the end of this year.
