Glenn Beck will “transition off of his daily program” later this year, Beck and Fox News announced on Wednesday. The statement did not specify an end date for the show, but Beck’s contract is up in December.

In a joint news release, Fox News and Mercury Radio Arts, Beck’s production company, said that they will “work together to develop and produce a variety of television projects for air on the Fox News Channel as well as content for other platforms including Fox News’ digital properties.” The release did not state what those programs will be.

Beck has been thinking about leaving Fox for a while and has considered taking over a cable channel or expanding his subscription video service online.

“Glenn Beck is a powerful communicator, a creative entrepreneur and a true success by anybody’s standards,” said Roger Ailes, Chairman and chief executive of Fox News, in the statement. “I look forward to continuing to work with him.”

“I truly believe that America owes a lot to Roger Ailes and Fox News,” said Beck. “I cannot repay Roger for the lessons I’ve learned and will continue to learn from him and I look forward to starting this new phase of our partnership.”
