GBTV EXPANDS ITS PRODUCTION AND OPERATIONS TEAM

Eric Pearce Promoted to VP of Television Operations and Liz Julis Named VP of Special Event Programming

(New York, NY, November 1st 2011) GBTV, Glenn Beck’s live-streaming video network, announced today that it is expanding its production and operations team. Eric Pearce, former Director of Television Operations has been promoted to Vice President of Television Operations and Liz Julis, who produced Restoring Courage, Glenn’s historic event on the mall in Washington D.C., has been named VP of Special Event Programming.

Pearce, previously Director of Television Operations, has helped build GBTV into one of the world’s largest streaming video networks. In his new role, Pearce will continue to oversee GBTV’s operations and will help manage the creation of a production facility in Texas. Before joining Mercury Radio Arts, Pearce spent five and a half years with CNN working in the Program Development Unit, helping to launch multiple primetime shows for HLN, including Glenn’s first TV show back in May 2007.

Chris Balfe, President and COO of Mercury Radio Arts said: “GBTV is television on the internet, not internet television. One way we have accomplished that goal is by hiring top quality network level talent like Eric. He has done a tremendous job building GBTV’s world-class operations and we are glad he is part of our team.”

Julis, who oversaw all of the event production surrounding Glenn’s historic Restoring Courage rally on August 28th, 2010 and Glenn’s three events in Israel this past summer, will produce and organize coverage of live events for GBTV. The productions will not only include events headlined by Glenn but also third party events and special programming that will be announced at a later time. Julis joined Mercury in 2006.

Balfe said: “Glenn sets a very high quality standard for all Mercury projects and Liz has shown the incredible ability to produce historic, large scale events that meet those standards. We have some exciting plans for GBTV produced live-events and look forward to Liz bringing them to our subscribers across the country.”

Glenn’s two-hour show, which debuted on 9/12 is broadcast live weekdays from 5 to 7PM ET from a newly-built set designed by Glenn and his team at the iconic NEP Studios in Midtown Manhattan. It will be moving to Dallas next year.  The show features Glenn’s unique fusion of entertainment and enlightenment and includes contributors like Amy Holmes, Will Cain, S.E. Cupp and Raj Nair. In addition to Glenn’s new show, GBTV includes a wide range of programming including Liberty Tree House, Mercury Theater, The B.S. of A, a six camera simulcast of Glenn’s three hour radio show and “The 4th Hour” starring Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere.

GBTV is available on computers, Roku, iPads, iPhones and Boxee.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
