Glenn presented prestigious Andrew Ashwood award at radio event

On Friday afternoon, Glenn was asked to speak at Talk Show Boot Camp, a gathering of some of the biggest names in the talk radio industry. Glenn was asked to speak, and he shared lessons gained from his years as a broadcaster. He spoke about the importance of connecting with the audience, and the need for people to be passionate and honest when dealing with every aspect of radio, from content to advertising. Following his speech, Glenn received an unexpected surprise: he was presented with the Andrew Ashwood Award for making a positive impact in radio.

The award was given to him by Jim Farley, last years recipient, and presented in front of several radio industry leaders.

“As a guy, who, excuse my language, was an a**hole for most of my life, that’s very kind,” Glenn said fighting back tears. “Thank you.”

Excerpts from Glenn’s speech:

Presentation of the award:

    It’s a business. That is why they all steal material and techniques from one another.

  • melissa


  • John Steele

    Two questions – how come there isn’t a single person shown in the audience or on the stage?
    And, why didn’t anyone consider editing out the cameraman’s fart @ 1:00?

  • Revan

    Good work Glenn.

  • Igor Shafarevich

    That “all men are by nature equally free and independent” has been largely replaced with a simplified expression of “free and equal”.
