Glenn Beck’s latest stage show, an audience member asked Glenn to give everyone a hint at what he would be doing once his FOX News show came to an end. Not being one to keep secrets, Glenn shed some light on his plans and as well as his motivations.
Glenn said that while he will be getting out of cable news, he would continue to spread information through a variety of media. He referenced The Blaze, which he said would continue to grow, as well as plans to put idle brains to work. He said that he would be developing, for lack of a better term, a “think tank for changing the change”. Glenn said that he would be calling for the untapped millions of minds who are either unemployed or retired. Former CEOs, Military, PhDs, and regular Americans that can help Glenn research as well as brainstorm positive ways to organize and make a difference. He did emphasize, however, that he was not interested in building a competitor for FOX News.
Also, Glenn promised that Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert would not occupy the space of political comedy alone for much longer. While he was short on details, he did hint that he was developing new ways to reach out to twenty-somethings through comedy and entertainment.
While Glenn did not say where he would be going next, he did say he planned to build this “new media” outside of New York City. He quoted Paul Harvey, saying, “If you want to change the mainstream media, get out of New York.” Glenn promised to go out with people and work with them on “building what needs to be built.”
