About Glenn Beck

In addition to being a leading radio personality, Glenn Beck is the host of a hugely successful self-titled television show on Headline News; the publisher of “Fusion,” a monthly magazine that boasts tens of thousands of subscribers; a contributor to ABC’s Good Morning America; and a #1 New York Times best-selling author of “An Inconvenient Book: Real Solutions to the World’s Biggest Problems.” Making his radio debut 30 years ago at the age of 13, he was a successful Top 40 DJ for many years.  However, by the age of 30, Beck lost his passion for radio due to his alcoholism and drug addiction.  Upon gaining sobriety, he discovered his enthusiasm for talk radio, and took his career in a new direction.  Eventually, he assumed the 18th position time slot at WFLA-AM in Tampa, Florida, and took it to the #1 position in his first year, giving the station its highest ratings ever.  Within 18 months, Premiere Radio Networks offered Beck the opportunity to go national.  In Jan. 2002, The Glenn Beck Program debuted on 47 stations.  Today, the show is heard on 300 stations and on XM Satellite Radio.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

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.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

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.
