Disrupt or Be Disrupted – Glenn Discusses Major Changes in His Company

Digital disruption is inevitable, and as you now may have heard, TheBlaze and Mercury Radio Arts slashed “just over 20 percent of the combined workforce” Thursday.

Glenn, who was awarded the Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Award at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2013, launched the multimedia platform in 2011.

“I think the days of business being done the way it’s always been done … is over. And I don’t think people really understand that yet,” Glenn said.

“And I’ve been warning you for a long time…there’s going to come a time to where we’re going to cross this line and all of the changes that the Industrial Revolution brought – over a hundred years – remember, Americans went from a farming community to a culture living in the cities on top of each other with radio communication, and automated machines, and cars, and everything else. That took about a hundred years to flip the entire society over. There’s going to come a time where it’s going to happen in a 10 year period and it will be as dramatic, if not more so … but in a 10 year period. I’ve been warning that that time is coming … ”

Today on radio, Glenn shared some of the major changes taking place at TheBlaze, including changes in new programming and what the future for media looks like in America.

GLENN: You started with the white supremacy there. Once again, the white person comes first. That's the kind of stuff that Pat will now be bringing you every day.

Pat is -- we've announced -- in fact, I think we're announcing right now for the first time that Pat is going to be doing his own show following this program, three-hour unleashed -- Pat unleashed. Because that chain around his neck is starting to chafe just a little bit.

PAT: A little bit. Yeah. Uh-huh.

GLENN: And so that will be on Blaze TV and Blaze Radio, starting a week from Monday, right?


PAT: Yes. There may be slightly -- slightly less mentions of the word love.


JEFFY: Is it undeniable?

STU: It's undeniable.

PAT: It's undeniable.


GLENN: Uh-huh. Uh-huh.

STU: Take me with you. Take me with you.

GLENN: Oh, gosh. I wish I could.

When I proposed this, Stu was like, "I can go too, right? I can go."

Isn't there something like a Stockholm syndrome that's supposed to happen with you guys?


I'm just saying.

PAT: No, we really love our captor. He's really good to us.

GLENN: Right. Right. Okay.

STU: I'm really excited for that. It's going to be on if you're a Blaze subscriber, you get to watch it. It will be on Blaze Radio every single day. The Pat Gray Show. Do you know what you're calling it yet?

JEFFY: Pat Gray.

PAT: I think we're going out on a limb and calling it Pat Gray.

STU: Oh, my gosh. That's interesting.

GLENN: It's very clever.

STU: I don't understand the choice.

GLENN: We did a lot of focus groups. Yeah, we did. We went to a big New York agency and said, "We have all of these options. And we don't know where to -- and they did some focus groups. It cost about half a million dollars.

We're going out on a limb. Either Boxy, But Good. Or just Pat Gray.

STU: And they went Pat Gray?

GLENN: Yeah, they went with Pat Gray.

PAT: Even though Boxy, But Good -- it was tempting. We liked that one --

GLENN: It was tempting. It was tempting. But we liked it. So Pat is going to be doing that. Yesterday, in case you read -- hopefully, you know, you got it from my post. And, you know, and you can believe whatever you want.

But yesterday, we made some changes here. Because as I've been talking about for a while, and I said yesterday on the air that I met with some banking people just this weekend. They were talking -- I said, you know, I think the days of -- of business being done the way it's always been done is over.

And I don't think people really understand that yet. And I've been warning you for a long time. There's going to come a time to where we're going to cross this line, and all of the changes that the Industrial Revolution brought over 100 years -- remember, they went from -- Americans went from a farming community to a culture living in the cities on top of each other with radio communication and automated machines and cars and everything else. That took about 100 years to flip the entire society over.

There's going to come a time where it's going to happen in a ten-year period. And it will be as dramatic, if not more so. But in a ten-year period. I've been warning that that time is coming. And I've been saying, "I don't know when that is happening." I still don't. But I believe -- I'm betting that we've just crossed the threshold. I think we've just crossed the Rubicon of -- of change. And there's no way this is going to slow down or stop now. And it's going to affect everyone

And as I was talking to these bankers, they said -- they said, "That's happening in our business. That's happening -- we're seeing this in every business, that if you don't disrupt yourself, and I mean seriously disrupt yourself, you're not going to make it."

And we started to talk about, how does a bank invest when there is no such thing as like a capex expense. When you can't say, "Hey, I need a loan for $2 million for this software system or for whatever." When two years in, that software system could be completely outdated and replaced by something that, you know, is a free app.

And he said, "I don't know. We haven't figured that one out yet." So we're just in this really weird world of chaos. And we're making some changes here to reduce the chaos and try to -- try to explain your world and have it make sense.

Going over to TheBlaze radio also is Jeffy. Jeffy is going to be operations for TheBlaze Radio. And Jeffy -- nobody really knows this. Jeffy is just an anchor around all of our necks.

STU: They know that. We tell him all the time.

GLENN: Oh, no, wait. That wasn't the story I was going to tell. Most people don't know this, but, Jeffy, when I worked at WFLA, Jeffy was pretty much running the place. He -- yeah, you were.

JEFFY: Well...

GLENN: And he is big behind the scenes. A lot of people say, "I don't know what Jeffy does for a living."

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: He actually is -- he's responsible for --

JEFFY: That's because you say that.

STU: That's true. That's very true.

GLENN: TheBlaze Radio. And he's going to fully take over that position, beginning Monday -- or, Tuesday, as well.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests? 

Would you feel safe if your child attended a University that allowed pro-Hamas protests?

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

Top 5 economic milestones that show HOW BAD Bidenomics has made the economy

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
