Beck says he’s sold his Connecticut mansion, which had been listed for more than a year. Leaving New York is something he’s hinted at on his radio show, but this is more of a confirmation of his future plans.
Beck also outlined his post-Fox News future — for his company, and himself. According to Joe Brooks of WireUpdate.com Mercury Radio Arts is going to develop a research department “that will utilize the idle brains that we have — retired CIA and military,” Beck says.
“What you are about to see in a few months is a new way to communicate with each other,” Beck predicted, adding that he’s going to “build a way to deliver news directly to the youth of America.” Much of that work will likely be headed up by Joel Cheatwood whose last day at Fox News was April 8 and who is now EVP at Beck’s Mercury Radio Arts.
