Texas Rangers star Josh Hamilton will be on GBTV tongiht at 5pm ET in his first one on one interview since his relapse. The interview will be conducted by his pastor, Dr. James Robison, as Glenn is out on a “special assignment” until Monday morning.

“I'm so moved by the Josh Hamilton story in the first place because it is a story of redemption,” Glenn said on radio this morning.

Glenn, notoriously clueless when it comes to sports, admitted, “is the one sports story I can talk about with some credibility. Well, I don't know about credibility but I mean, I can talk about it.”

Pat described the story, how Hamilton was one of the biggest baseball prospects to come along in a while but drugs and alcohol ruined his life, and he was out of baseball completely for a while.

“And then he got his act together. I think that's when he met his wife and really put his life back together. And obviously became a huge star in the major leagues and in '05 he had his first relapse,” Pat explained.

In the past week Hamilton had his third relapse.

“He lives in my general neighborhood and everybody that I know down in Texas just says he and the family are just, he and his wife are just amazing people, just amazing people. And Tania and I were so hurt to hear that he was struggling with alcoholism and, you know, the relapse,” Glenn said.

Being that Hamilton had his relapse in Dallas, the radio crew wondered why someone would serve him.

“Nobody else is responsible for that drink. However, I do have to question the sanity or the humanity of the guy, the bartender and the people at the bar,” Glenn said.

“You know, we've talked about this over the past couple of days a few times and I'd say it's about 50/50 split. There's a lot of people who take that sort of, I guess I would describe it as libertarian bet of saying, look, it's his responsibility whether he's going to drink or not. I'm not going to refuse him alcohol. He's not being dangerous to other patrons or anything else; maybe I should just serve him. But to me it's like you you're a member of this community. I mean, I can't imagine people inDallas are happy with this bar for serving him. It's like you're ruining potentially just selfishly you're ruining the team's year. This is a team that's gone to the World Series twice, two years in a row,” Stu said.

Nevertheless Glenn, also a recovering alcoholic, sympathized with Hamilton.

“Alcoholism is the hardest thing to kick. It is. It's with you for your whole life,” Glenn said.

Glenn shared his own struggle admitting that there have been times recently when he has feared falling back into old, bad habits.

“I haven't talked about this at all but this has been the hardest two months of my entire recovery, the last two months. Just been very difficult. I've asked you to pray for us, pray for the family,” Glenn said.

On Wednesday night, James Robison will be filling in for Glenn while he goes to work on a special project that he will reveal on Monday. Robison joined Glenn on radio to discuss some of Hamilton’s struggles and what the two will discuss Wednesday on GBTV.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
