"Born in 1964, in Mount Vernon, Washington, Glenn first started working the microphone at the age of 13, and did several weekend jobs at radio stations. Glenn Beck is now known as a conservative political commentator, who with his knack of creating controversy became a nationally syndicated television and renowned radio host. With his conservative white male persona, Glenn owes his phenomenal success to radio, as his ‘The Glenn Beck Program’ is heard throughout in U.S. and is aired over 400 stations. His yearly payment for this popular gig is alone $10 million.
However, along with success, his life was also plagued with addictions of alcohol, drugs, affinity for harder narcotics, broken marriage. Once, he even contemplated suicide before he pulled back and thought to put his life on a right track. Eventually, he gave up smoking Marijuana, cut his long hair, and decided to go on a spiritual journey to reinvent his better side. He then tied the wedding knot with his love Tania, delved himself deep into radio talks, using the controversy surrounding the 2000 presidential elections and catapulted his show to be No. 1. Later, in the wake of President Obama’s election, Beck got even a bigger microphone to talk about the political issues. Continuing with his controversial comments, he pointedly called President Obama a racist, during a guest appearance on show Fox & Friends.
With his passionate and folksy style along with several years of work as a radio personality, Glenn has now undoubtedly reached the pinnacle of commercial success. In addition to radio and television work, he is also an author of best-selling books and a publisher of Fusion Magazine, and is honored with Marconi Radio Award for Network Syndicated Personality of the Year. Beck and his wife currently reside in Philadelphia.
