NEW YORK (AP) - Former Fox News Channel personality Glenn Beck is bound for Texas.
Beck said Monday that he's relocating his family to Dallas, where his media company is building a new television and radio studio.
Beck is starting a new online network, GBTV, on which he will beam a two-hour program each evening starting in late summer. He's continuing his syndicated radio show.
The president of Beck's company, Mercury Radio Arts, says the move doesn't mean the company will be abandoning its studio and offices in New York.
Beck doubled the ratings at his time slot almost immediately after joining Fox in January 2009. But critics persuaded advertisers to boycott his show last summer after he said President Barack Obama had "a deep-seated hatred for white people." His last show was in June.
