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.

China has been locking its citizens down for over two years under its zero-COVID policy, and it's becoming more and more clear that this isn’t just about COVID but something much more serious: slavery and control. Now it looks like many citizens have had enough. Protests are currently spreading throughout China and, unlike during the Tiananmen Square protests, the word is getting out.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck looked into the protests' "real motivations," explained how they’re different from the 1989 protests at Tiananmen Square, and predicted how these events are a "game-changer for the entire world."
