Glenn Beck is getting a very familiar temporary replacement when he leaves his Fox News show on Thursday afternoon: Glenn Beck.
On Friday, Fox News will run a John Stossel special in place of Beck's 5 PM show. After that, spokeswoman Irena Briganti told TVNewser, "We will run encore presentations of 'Glenn Beck' next week and will announce our plans shortly."
Beck is leaving Fox News to run his own Internet TV channel called "GBTV."
Fox News has not been clear about who will replace Beck. Fellow Fox hosts Greg Gutfeld and Eric Bolling have recently filled in. Beck himself told Fox Business host Andrew Napolitano that he wanted him to have the slot.
