Good news, Glenn Beck fans! Bad news for the rest of you, we suppose.
Beck has signed a deal to continue his radio show, “The Glenn Beck Program,” for another five years. Premiere Networks will syndicate his show for the duration, but not without considerable compensation. Beck’s company, Mercury Radio Arts, is reportedly earning $100 million out of the deal.
Beck’s show is broadcast to over 400 radio stations, and is No. 3 in the ratings — beaten only by pundits Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.
Meanwhile, Beck’s future in television seems to be in flux. After being ousted from Fox News, Beck hasn’t found another TV home — unless you count his own Internet station, GBTV. Which we don’t.
