Glenn Beck – Founder & CEO, Mercury Radio Arts
Glenn Beck is one of America’s leading multi-media personalities. His quick wit, candid opinions and engaging personality have made The Glenn Beck Program the third highest rated radio program in America and GBTV, one of the world’s largest streaming video networks. His unique blend of modern-day storytelling and insightful views on current events allowed him to achieve the extraordinary feat of having #1 New York Times bestsellers in both fiction and non-fiction. Beck also stars in a live stage show, is the editor of GlennBeck.com and the publisher of TheBlaze.com. Beck’s Restoring Honor Event on 8/28/2010 drew hundreds of thousands of people to the Mall in Washington D.C. and he previously hosted a phenomenally successful show on Fox News.
While Beck entered the media world as a DJ at the tender age of 13, everything changed when he found a new vision of his career – talk radio. In 2002, he launched The Glenn Beck Program on just 47 stations with the mission to make listeners “feel goodness from my show and accept me for who I am, flaws and all.” Nothing has been the same since.
Today, just a few years later, his radio show can be heard across the country on over 400 stations, his books reach the top of bestseller lists and he travels across the country performing his live stage show to sold-out audiences. Across all of these mediums, Beck connects with his fans in a whole new way, inspiring and entertaining them with his humor, hard-hitting interviews and honest tales about his life.
Beck’s radio show, The Glenn Beck Program, is syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks and is the third highest-rated national radio talk show among adults ages 25 to 54. Beck was the recipient of the 2008 Marconi Award for Network/Syndicated Personality of the Year from the National Association of Broadcasters.
Beck’s self-titled topical talk show on the FOX News Channel averaged over 2 million viewers during its two and a half-year run. That performance built off the success of Beck’s nightly TV show on CNN Headline News, which he hosted from 2006-2008. During those two years, the show grew by more than 200% in viewership in both the 7pm and 9pm timeslots.
