Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck

Glenn Lee Beck (born February 10, 1964) is an American television personality and radio host, conservative political commentator, author, television network producer, filmmaker, and entrepreneur. He hosts the Glenn Beck Radio Program, a popular nationally syndicated talk-radio show that airs throughout the United States on Premiere Radio Networks and the Glenn Beck television program, which ran from January 2006 to October 2008 on HLN, from January 2009 to June 2011 on the Fox News Channel and currently airs on TheBlaze. Beck has authored six New York Times–bestselling books. Beck is the founder and CEO of Mercury Radio Arts, a multimedia production company through which he produces content for radio, television, publishing, the stage, and the Internet. It was announced on April 6, 2011, that Beck would "transition off of his daily program" on Fox News later in the year but would team with Fox to "produce a slate of projects for Fox News Channel and Fox News' digital properties". Beck's last daily show on the network was June 30, 2011. In 2012, The Hollywood Reporter named Beck on its Digital Power Fifty list.

Beck's supporters praise him as a constitutional stalwart defending traditional American values, while his critics contend he promotes conspiracy theories and employs incendiary rhetoric for ratings.

Beck launched TheBlaze in 2011 after leaving Fox News. He currently hosts his hour-long afternoon program, The Glenn Beck Program on weekdays, and his three-hour morning radio show, both of which are broadcast on TheBlaze. Beck is also writing and producing several original film and television projects; History House, which follows the adventures of Johnny Appleseed and Bookworm as they travel through the greatest stories ever told. History House's trailer was called "reminiscent of a Pixar short" by the Huffington Post; The Revolutionary, a Spanish-language film set in Central America, Immortal, an upcoming film featuring a warrior Santa Claus who meets the Christ after losing his son to the wilderness, and Voltage, a planned television show about the conflict between inventors Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla.


Beck has reached #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List in four separate categories as of 2010: Hardcover Non-Fiction, Paperback Non-Fiction, Hardcover Fiction, and Children's Picture Books.
