At a staff meeting in New York last February, Glenn Beck exhorted his employees to pinch pennies and said the company‚Äôs debt was too high at $3 million‚ÄĒa figure sources said later grew to $5 million or more.

In what knowledgeable observers say is a sign of increasing turmoil in Glenn Beck’s troubled media empire, Beck’s longtime mentor and corporate executive, Kraig Kitchin, has quit as CEO of The Blaze.

EDITOR‚ÄôS NOTE: Remember how cool it was the first time you listened to Glenn Beck? He had that magic chalkboard and he seemed to know just about everything related to the deep and dark intricacies of American history. He repeated the word ‚Äúprogressives‚ÄĚ so often that after awhile you could spot one from a mile away in the fog with your eyes closed. Then he left Fox, started his own company, and slowly drifted into what can only be described as a combination of first mental illness, then paranoia and finally now we see him in the death throes of irrelevance.

Kraig Kitchin’s replacement, Stewart Padveen, a digital startup entrepreneur who joined Beck’s company last summer, will be the fourth leader of The Blaze since late 2014.

Kitchin, 54, who took over operations of Beck‚Äôs conservative-leaning subscription digital and cable television enterprise last June‚ÄĒafter two previous CEOs abruptly left in the space of six months‚ÄĒis resigning along with two other senior executives: Jeremy Price, director of advertising sales, and Liz Julis, director of marketing‚Ķ. Several other key employees, including at least two senior producers based in The Blaze‚Äôs shrinking New York operation, are expected to follow them out the door.
