Conservative talker Glenn Beck is revealing his future plans after he leaves his Fox News Channel TV show — talking for the first time about how he will quit New York City and focus his media efforts on a younger audience.
Beck announced this weekend that he has sold his mansion in suburban Connecticut, which had been listed for more than a year. He had been asking $4 million.
“The last thing I will be doing, I will be leaving New York City. As we build a new media I’m not building it in New York,” Beck said. He has not divulged where he will relocate.
Beck said his production company, Mercury Radio Arts, is going to develop a research department “that will utilize the idle brains that we have — retired CIA and military.
“What you’re going to see in a few months is a new way to communicate with each other.” He added that he is going to “build a way to deliver news directly to the youth of America.”
Beck hinted at his change of direction during an interview earlier this month with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly.
“It’s a new era,” he told O’Reilly. “Things are changing in the world . . . We have to reach different audiences. We have to reach younger.”
O’Reilly asked: “So you’re going to do more Internet stuff?”
Beck said: “Internet stuff. Not necessarily just with me. Bill, you know my business. I’m multiplatform and do many different things.”
O’Reilly: “So you’re going to develop programming not only for you but for other people on the Net.”
