(Newser) – Glenn Beck is no more on Fox News: He signed off from his show for the final time today. "He kept the chalkboards to a minimum, and shed no tears," writes Jack Mirkinson at the Huffington Post. "He also shied away from too many specific recollections about his show." Beck, though, made sure to remind folks he's not leaving the public stage, notes the Washington Post. “For those members of media who are celebrating ... you will pray for the time I was only on the air for one hour a day," he said.

His next big venture is a subscription webcast at, and he also recently launched his own book imprint. His thoughts today on leaving, as recounted by Mediaite: "As a guy who has traded my soul before, I will not trade it again. ... I learned the hard way who I was. We as a country now have a chance to learn who we are, what we’re capable of, and what we truly believe before we’re forced to learn the hard way. Now is the time to be part of the solution.”
