Top Glenn Moments: Glenn expands TheBlaze into a multiplatform media company

With Glenn on vacation for the holidays, we’re counting down the top Glenn moments of 2012. What were this year’s highlights? Stay tuned to the Glenn Beck newsletter to find out!

In 2011, Glenn signed off from cable news with a promise: The left would beg for the days when he was only on at 5pm ET. In 2012, Glenn more than made good on that promise as TheBlaze grew into a new media empire. In January, TheBlaze TV, added the news and opinion show Real News, hosted by Amy Holmes with regular appearances by Buck Sexton, S.E. Cupp, Will Cain and Andrew Wilkow. In July, Andrew Wilkow broke off into his own show,rounding out a primetime lineup ready to deliver the truth the mainstream media refused to tell the American people. In October, Glenn announced that he was launching TheBlaze Radio Network, an online streaming radio network that would not only feature his daily audio and television shows, it would also be the exclusive home of Marconi award winning radio host Jay Severin. Meanwhile, broke traffic records on their news and information website and shows no sign of slowing down as they continue to expand their editorial staff and expose the biggest stories that matter to you.

So, why have we decided to make the incredible growth of TheBlaze into a multi-platform, multimedia network one of the top Glenn moments of the year? Well, today’s top moment came on November 7th, the day AFTER the 2012 Presidential election. That morning, Glenn took to the radio show without Pat and Stu for a one-on-one conversation with the American people. He started off the show with the inspiring story of how Thomas Paine came to write the famous phrase: Though the flame of liberty may sometimes cease to shine, the coal can never expire. Shortly after that, Glenn came back with a POWERFUL monologue promising that he would double down his efforts after the election. He announced plans to add more programming and to turn TheBlaze into an even more formidable force that would make the mainstream media shake with fear.
“We are going to provide courage and inspiration and truth. We will expose and we will lift up. We will not tear down,” he promised.
Within a few short weeks, Glenn announced that he was partnering with Vince Vaughn, Peter Billingsley, and others to produce a new reality show for TheBlaze TV that would find the best undiscovered American investigative journalists and filmmakers. The new show, The Pursuit of The Truth, will will bring together twenty selected filmmakers from across the country to prove to a panel of expert judges that their project is worthy of the grand prize – financing and worldwide distribution for their feature documentary film idea. 
What does Glenn have planned next for TheBlaze? We can’t say what’s next, but with all the big ideas he told us before he left for the holidays – you can bet that they will end up on 2013’s “Top Glenn Moments” countdown!

    The future is determined by what we do today. 

    So it is each of us have a part to play to ensure the restoration of the Republic, and to hold onto as much freedoms and rights as we can during the next term of Obama the destroyer.  He will stop at nothing to crush the nation once and for all in his insanity-filled grasp and covert us to a communist nation.

    May justice be delivered swiftly Lord unto the House of Obama for all the crimes they have committed against the people of this nation, and all that you have entrusted us with.

    It could be argued that, if Beck had remained at Fox…

    obama would NOT have been reelected.

      It could also be argued Obama would have won twice the votes if Beck was still passing out his paranoia and zenophobia, seeing how the voters soundly rejected AM Radio Think.  How did the whole Hispanic bashing thing work out for you right wing nut jobs over the old AM radio, hmmmm….?

    Congratulations guys! Glad to see everything is working out, and you’ve invented your own platform to spread the truth to the increasingly ignorant electorate. 

    That Obama picture about new legislation (or whatever the heck that was supposed to be about)  tricked me twice! I didn’t have my sound up, so I didn’t buy the timeshare (or whatever I’m supposed to be buying) but I LOVE the add nonetheless. Would love to put it on my blog.

      reading your yahoo comment history is pretty entertaining. You seem very intellectual. Superb vocabulary. The type of person that really has an open mind and is willing to learn new ideas.

      If you sincerely think that,
      WHY. ARE. YOU. HERE?

      • Jake Onopa

        because i like to see how stupid the people that like him are, just like you…

  • George Washington

    Glenn, At your Lincoln Memorial speech, you turned and pointed to the crowd saying that somewhere in the crowd was a new “George Washington”.  In my uniform as George Washington the Christian LIVES, I was on the top step of the Lincoln Memorial.  After first displaying the “Liberty Tree” “Appeal to Heaven” Washington Cruisers, true First Navy Flag, I assisted in deploying the huge American flag that can be seen in C-SPAN videos of the event. “Martha Washington” was also there, and she is a subscriber to your TV program and regular listener, who traveled to Texas to participate in your Restoring Love program in Dallas.

    I PRAY you will have someone on your staff contact me about the lessons we can apply from the Election of 1824 to THIS year’s Election.  Time is of the essence.  
    My phone is 703-NRA-1776

    This is exactly what is necessary, if we conservatives are ever going to get our message out and if we are ever going to expose the lapdog media for their propagandist agendas. Exposing the left will take persistence and a forum to speak from and Glenn is constructing that forum. Many more will be needed and we have a lot of Rich conservatives who need to get into the game to create these forums.

    As someone on “the left”, I certainly don’t miss Beck at all, seems he is now some back alley on the Internet and has become irrelevant politically, couldn’t have happened to a nicer Right Wing Nut Job
