Glenn Beck

Show Summary

Nationally syndicated radio talk show host Glenn Beck became even more visible in 2006 with his first television commentary show, CNN's Glenn Beck, which was at the time, the fastest growing TV talk show on cable. In 2009, Beck's show moved over to the Fox News Channel. Getting his start in radio after winning a contest to be a DJ for an hour, Beck began his talk show career at Tampa, Florida's 970 WFLA-AM, going to the number one slot in less than a year. The Glenn Beck Program radio show is syndicated through the Premiere Radio Network on over 300 radio stations as well as XM Satellite Radio, making it the third highest rated national radio talk show with adults 25 to 54. A recovering alcoholic, Beck shares his triumphs, struggles, and discoveries on the shows and isn't afraid of controversy. Debuting May 8, 2006, Glenn Beck, the television show, doubled CNN's viewers during the time period and became one of the network's most popular shows. But being the only conservative voice on the ultra-liberal cable channel proved to be too much for CNN and the show moved to the more politically centered Fox News Channel in 2009. Featuring witty responses to current events in a conservative light, Glenn Beck was a news entertainment show for "those who cannot stand to watch the news anymore." After lots of pressure from the left, and a dispute with FOX News chief, The Glenn Beck Program left FOX June 30, 2011.moreless

  • The things you should be hearing about but aren't.

    From the border, to the housing crisis, to political correctness, Glenn Beck really tells the news like it is, the way other people won't let you see it. He does an excellent job on telling you the real news that you need to hear, but can't find anywhere else. I agree with almost everything he says, but overall is a great news show that is 100% informative all the time. I just love his story about how he is a recovering alcoholic and he bounced back to be this loving father that changed his ways for the love of his children. Great guy, with a great show!!!!moreless
  • Want news on the economy, border, how the government's screwing up? Then watch Beck.

    In a sea of guys who have been commentators for years, there's one guy who has an everyman approach to things. Glen Beck. Yeah, I know, he's got a highly rated radio show, but compared to other guys, he hasn't been on the commentating scene for very long. The result? An almost normal conservative view to things. Want common sense? You'll find a truckload here. From the economy, to the border, to drilling for our own oil, he actually talks about it here. You can also find stuff on faith, which is refreshing on a cable news network. Despite being a regular guy, he's been right on a ton of issues. The economy is a good example. Months before our economy began to slip he was saying our economy's going to slip. Everyone thought he was crazy. Well, it turned out he was right. But, like most conservative commentators he's been hammered and depicted as a racist, which is not true or fair. If you want common sense watch Beck.moreless
  • Fantastic and Real!

    Glenn Beck is bringing America what they need to hear. The truth about what is really going on in the world. He brings stories that aren't heard in the mainstream news and if you go and check out the stories that he has on, he is right on target. He really feels what he says he believes and that makes him really likable and great to watch. I think he was underappreciated on his former network, but even under the pressure he stayed true to who is, someone who is genuine and loves America. His show is definitely worth taking a second look!moreless
  • What a character!

    Wow. Glenn Beck is some piece of work. I can't believe that he thinks people buy into his emotional breakdowns. I really have to say he is very much hilarious and often fake. I like the fact that I don't take him seriously, as I feel he is pretty much a joke. His show is for those who like sketches like SNL or Mad TV. Like everyone from Fox News, he tends to stretch the truth and spin it in an obvious way. Overall, I must say that he and his show are where they belong. They are on a biased news channel. Thank you.moreless
  • Glenn Beck delivers!

    I sat back in my theater seat that Thursday night, not knowing exactly what to expect. I've listened to Beck's radio program with some regularity in the past. What ensued was a refreshing display of clean, good hearted humor and inspiring commentary; all amidst an audience of would-be American patriots.

    The first act, I have to admit, was maybe a little bit hokie for my standards. I have most of the jokes a little more than a chuckle and found myself thinking to myself that only real conservatives are going to enjoy this stuff. By the intermission, I had a feeling that I was going to leave somewhat satsified by the performance, but was mostly just glad to have gone to have given it a fair shot. The second act, however, was a totally different story; Beck had merely set the table in the first half. I found his words to be compelling, inspirational and rang true in my heart. Indeed, the event was well named because everything did seem to be full of common sense. Beck provided some very interesting perspective that I felt was mostly non-partisan. For this reason, I feel that any American could enjoy his message without the limitation of a closed partisan mind.moreless
