After their parents’ separation, Glenn Beck and his sister had moved with their mother to Sumner, Washington, but after she drowned in a boating incident in May 1979, they moved to Bellingham, Washington, to live with their father.

Her death was ruled by police investigators as an accident, however Coast Guard investigators speculated that she could have intentionally jumped overboard, and Glenn Beck himself maintains that his mother committed suicide. Glenn Beck attended Sehome High School, graduating in June 1982.

Glenn Beck Career: 

At the age of 13, Glenn Beck landed his first radio job when one of the local AM stations put on a contest for a guest DJ and Beck easily won the gig. Two years later Glenn Beck applied for a DJ job at a new Seattle FM station, hired without ever meeting with his new bosses face-to-face.

Management was taken aback by their new employee’s youth, but they liked his polished audition tape and stuck to their decision.

After high school, Glenn Beck shifted to Provo, Utah, where he worked at the radio station KAYK for six months. Glenn Beck then relocated to Washington, D.C., where he worked at WPGC. Then, in 1983, he moved to Corpus Christi, Texas, to work at KZFM, followed in mid-1985 by a move to Louisville, Kentucky, to be the lead DJ for WRKA’s morning radio broadcast. There, his show was called “Captain Beck and the A-Team”, and it ran for four hours every weekday.

After a decline in his show’s ratings and a dispute with the WRKA management, Glenn Beck left Kentucky and moved to Phoenix, Arizona, where he worked at KOY-FM. With all his movement around the country, he continued to build up his career and reputation.

In fact, by the age of 21, Glenn Beck was commanding a salary of $70,000. Unfortunately, with the money came a change in ego and with the semi-celebrity status came addictions—combined with a series of failed morning programs with big ratings expectations—and in no time turned him into a near has-been in the radio industry.

Glenn Beck was able to get another shot in 2000, when “The Glenn Beck Program” began airing on WFLA (AM) in Tampa, Florida. Despite not so steller track record in terms of being able to command ratings, Beck was able to advance his afternoon time slot from eighteenth to No. 1 in just a year.

The continued success and popularity of “The Glenn Beck Program” led to Premiere Radio Networks launching the show nationwide in January 2002 on 47 different stations. By 2008, the show was on over 280 stations across the country, was ranked No. 4 in the nation, and boasted over 6.5 million listeners.

In January 2006, Glenn Beck made the transition from radio to television, when CNN announced that he would be joining them and hosting his own weeknight show “Glenn Beck”. While with CNN, Glenn Beck won the Marconi Radio Award for Network Syndicated Personality of the Year in 2008.

Later in 2008, Glenn Beck announced that he was leaving CNN to join Fox News Channel, where “Glenn Beck” began airing in January 2009. Additionally, at Fox News he had his own regular Friday segment on “The O’Reilly Factor”, called “At Your Beck and Call”.

In 2011, Glenn Beck left Fox News to launch his own media outlet TheBlaze TV (originally called GBTV). This started as a subscription-based internet TV network, and it was estimated by The Wall Street Journal that there were more than 300,000 subscribers to the service in its first year of operation, generating an estimated $40 million.

In September 2012, TheBlaze TV announced a new partnership with the Dish Network, which would begin offering TheBlaze TV. It is now available on over 90 television providers across the nation.
