Veteran journalist Laurie Dhue joins TheBlaze

Glenn announced this morning that Laurie Dhue is officially joining TheBlaze as anchor for TheBlaze TV News. Dhue will will continue to host "For the Record", TheBlaze's original documentary series and anchor prime time news updates and breaking news coverage throughout the network.

"I relish this rare opportunity to be on the ground floor of an organization that could change the industry as we know it. The Blaze, a truly independent network, is ever-expanding, and an exciting phenomenon in this time of cutbacks and uncertainty," Dhue said.

Dhue is the only anchor to have hosted shows on the three primary cable news networks: CNN, MSNBC and Fox News Channel. Dhue spent nearly eight years at Fox News, where she hosted "Fox Report" weekend edition and appeared weekly on "The O'Reilly Factor" and “Geraldo at Large”. She also served as the voice of the official launch of Fox News Radio and anchored evening news updates for several years.

Before joining Fox News Channel, Dhue hosted several shows on MSNBC and served as substitute news anchor on NBC's "Weekend Today Show." Dhue began her broadcasting career at CNN, working her way from entry-level to anchor in just six years, becoming one of the youngest full-time anchors in the network's history.

Throughout her 22-year career, Dhue has interviewed countless international leaders as well as politicians, celebrities and newsmakers. She has covered every major news event since the early 1990s as a writer, producer, reporter and anchor.

Joel Cheatwood, President and Chief Content Officer, said, "Laurie is an incredibly talented journalist who has done amazing work both throughout her career and as host of "For the Record." We are thrilled to have her join TheBlaze full time as we continue to expand our original programming."

In addition to her TV work, Dhue travels from coast-to-coast as a recovery advocate, giving speeches, moderating discussions and emceeing recovery-related events. Dhue is a surrogate for the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP).

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
