(Newser) – Why is Glenn Beck giving up his show on Fox News? The host addressed the question at the end of his show yesterday, but left his future plans something of a mystery, Mediaite notes.

He added: "When I took this job I didn’t take it because it was going to be a career for me.

He got off his horse at some point and fought in the revolution, and then he went back to silver-smithing.” (Read more Glenn Beck stories.)
