During a taped interview for Megyn Kelly’s primetime Fox News show on Tuesday night, Glenn Beck, radio host and media personality reflected on his eponymous show that aired on the network until he left for other projects in 2011.

He told Megyn Kelly he regrets that his language wasn’t more “uniting” during his days at Fox News.

‘I remember it as an awful lot of fun and that I made an awful lot of mistakes, and I wish I could go back and be more uniting in my language because I think I played a role, unfortunately, in helping tear the country apart,’ he said.

He continued, “I didn’t realize how really fragile the people were. I thought we were kind of more in it together and now I look back and realize, if we could’ve talked about the uniting principles instead of just the problems, I think I would look back more fondly.”

Beck left the network after two and a half years in June 2011 to start his own subscription-based cable network, Blaze TV, and matching radio show. His tenure was full of controversial moments, from accusing President Obama of being a “racist” to gutting a fish that he compared to the mainstream media on air.
