WATCH: Glenn shares important update about his health that will take him off air for July

Long time listeners may have noticed a change in Glenn's voice over the past couple of weeks. After consulting with doctors, he has been diagnosed with severe vocal cord strain resulting from overuse. Glenn's doctors have advised him to rest his voice over the next couple of weeks, and as a result he will be off radio and TV for the month of July. We expect him to return to the air on August 3rd, fully recovered.

During this four week period, Glenn will need to fight every urge to speak to give his vocal cords rest, and a selection of guests offering similar entertaining and enlightening points of view will host his radio and television programs.

Glenn will continue to stay in touch with you - the fans, viewers, and listeners - on his Facebook page and GlennBeck.com during this recovery period.

Below is the message Glenn shared on Facebook and radio today:

As you may or may not have noticed over the past couple of months, my voice has been changing a bit. Because I have had problems with my nerves in my vocal cords in the past where my voice has stopped working. I have been a little concerned, but I have really really great doctors, and this Friday I consulted with them and they have advised me to take a few weeks off and rest my voice due to some severe strain that has happened.

I know what I have to do. And I know how much work is left to do. And this is just another irritant in the long road of irritants. But its not going to stop me, and it's only going to sharpen my focus.

I intend on using the next few weeks on intensive study on figures of the past, on figures of courage, and figures of people who have really made a difference.

I also think this is going to be a great advantage for us as we get together for  August 28th and 29th in Birmingham, Alabama. Because of all the things I do, it is very hard for me to keep ahead of the game. This will give me a few weeks head start to focus on where we need to go next.

I have been talking about a lot of things in the past eight to nine years and have been warning about things like a caliphate, civil unrest, and a collapse of Greece - and we have now seen all of those things come to fruition.

I have also warned about the coldness of our hearts and the fact that we look for the speck in other people's eyes over the beam in our own. I am probably the most imperfect messenger on this, and I really believe this will give me an opportunity to do a lot of soul searching. To do a lot of reflection. And to, for the first time in about fifteen years, really listen more than I speak, which is a good thing for everybody.

I appreciate your tolerance, and all of the radio stations and television statements, and all of my partners in business for their understanding of this sabbatical and this time that doctors have told me I need to take off.

I appreciate you for sticking with us.

I know the staff has this weekend been working overtime on the thing that we can do to enrich us and keep us on track for where we are headed. They will be doing some really exciting things on radio and television that I think will help us. The time for looking and saying what is happening with the news is over. Now we need to start to say what's coming our way and what can we do about it - and that's where my focus is going to be.

I'm going to continue to stay with you on Facebook and everything in written form, but as of today doctor's have advised me to no longer speak for a while.

There's a lot of people in the world who are celebrating this, but it's only going to be for a few weeks. I believe it will humble me, it will make me a better man, and will perhaps teach me of the things that are worthy to be said, as I measure every word now that I can speak. I think this will be a very good thing.

I thank you for your prayers, your concern, your membership in TheBlaze. I thank you for that as you keep us going during this troubled time.

I will speak to you again in about a month.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
