Glenn Beck to go on a bit longer
Mercury Radio Arts, the parent of the Glenn Beck Show on radio is expected to announce this morning that it has renewed its contract with Premiere Networks which means that Glenn will be on the radio for another five years.
Premiere is a unit of Clear Channel and brought Mr. Beck’s show into syndication a decade ago and has seen Glenn’s show reach ratings that put him just behind Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.
As Julie Talbott, President of Premiere said, “There are a handful of superstar talents, and Glenn Beck is truly one of those.”
From Glenn’s perspective, Premiere is a must-have considering the publicity power the outfit brings for Mr. Beck’s GBTV internet television offering. Without syndication the new streaming internet TV subscription service would likely languish.
Glenn become more well-known from his work on CNN then Fox News. Now his audience is mostly FM Conservative talk radio with his GBTV service bringing in an added audience.
