“I hope people feel goodness from my show and accept me for who I am, flaws and all.”
Glenn Beck is one of America's leading radio and television personalities. His quick wit, candid opinions and engaging personality have made The Glenn Beck Program the third highest rated radio program in America and Glenn Beck, one of the most successful new shows on the Fox News Channel. His unique blend of modern-day storytelling and insightful views on current events allowed him to achieve the extraordinary feat of having #1 New York Times bestsellers in both fiction and non-fiction. Beck is also the star of a live stage show, the publisher of Fusion magazine and the editor of GlennBeck.com.
Beck entered the media world as a DJ at the tender age of 13, but discovered a vision of his career – talk radio. In 2002, he launched The Glenn Beck Program on just 47 stations with the mission to make listeners "…feel goodness from my show and accept me for who I am, flaws and all." Nothing has been the same since. But at the age of 30, Beck lost his passion for radio - and everything else - as he was consumed by alcoholism and drug addiction. Coming to terms with his past and staying sober shifted his life: a new love (his second wife, Tania), and religion (he was baptized Mormon) and a decision to pursue a career in talk radio.
Within 18 months, Premiere Radio Networks, the leading radio syndication company in the country, offered Glenn the opportunity to go national. In January 2002, The Glenn Beck Program debuted on 47 stations. Only a few years later, the show is now heard on over 400 stations and on XM satellite Radio.
Beck's radio show can now be heard on over 400 stations! His television show sets ratings records, his books top bestseller lists, and he performs his live stage show to sold-out audiences. The Glenn Beck Program, syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks, is the third highest-rated talk show among adults ages 25 to 54. Glenn received the 2008 Marconi Award for Network/Syndicated Personality of the Year from the National Association of Broadcasters.
Beck's self-titled topical talk show on the FOX News Channel debuted on January 19th, 2009 to over 2.4 million viewers. This incredible launch built off the success of Beck's nightly TV show on CNN Headline News, which he hosted from 2006-2008. During those two years, the show grew by more than 200% in viewership in both the 7pm and 9pm timeslots.
Beck's production company, Mercury Radio Arts, produces or co-produces his radio, TV, live events, publishing and digital media projects. Founded in 2002, Mercury has a full time staff of 20 employees and is based in New York, NY. Glenn is married with four children and resides in Connecticut.
