The conservative pundit, 47, plans to "develop and produce a variety of television projects for air on the FOX News Channel (FNC) as well as content for other platforms," according to a joint statement from the network and his production company.

In the interim, the political lightning rod will "transition off his daily program."

Beck certainly isn't cutting all times with Fox News. "Glenn Beck is a powerful communicator, a creative entrepreneur and a true success by anybody’s standards," Roger Ailes, Fox News' CEO said.

"America owes a lot to Roger Ailes and Fox News," Beck said. "I look forward to starting this new phase of our partnership."
