Glenn Beck: The Glenn Beck Network Could Happen

Glenn Beck could be starting his own cable network, according to rumors on Wednesday and a story in the New York Times.  If Beck leaves Fox News when his contract runs out at the end of 2011, one of the options he�s considering is a network of his very own.

Beck's contract with Fox News is up in December, and both sides are, as an earlier Times report put it, "contemplating life without" each other.

The New York Times reports that Beck has been thinking about starting his own channel for over a year.

On Monday, news broke that Beck was hiring a Fox News executive, Joel Cheatwood, to a senior position at his Mercury Radio Arts company. This was seen as a signal that Beck was gearing up to bolt Fox News, though sources there dismissed the news as irrelevant and said that Mercury was playing a "dangerous game" with Roger Ailes.

According to Stelter, Beck will not want to compete with Fox News if he leaves.

Beck has been fairly cryptic about his future with Fox News. In a radio show monologue last week, he would only say that he and his audience would "continue to find each other," whether on Fox News or elsewhere.

The 47-year-old firebrand declined to discuss his future plans, but issued a statement praising his network, saying "I have no intention whatsoever of doing the show I am doing now on Fox anywhere else."
