With Glenn Beck departing Fox News, it’s unlikely he will end up with a syndicated television show, reports B&C.
Syndicators are showing little interest in Beck because of his conservative bent, the story says. Beck’s representatives talked with distributors a year earlier, but were unable to find interest then, the article notes.
Conservative politician Mike Huckabee failed to attract a big audience when he debuted his talk show last summer from Twentieth Television and Fox Television Stations, the story points out.
Highly political hosts are hard to sell to stations, the article notes, pointing out that they might get picked up by stations in regions sympathetic to them but can have a hard time gaining acceptance in other regions.
