Beck website The Blaze launches. Glenn Beck is expanding his message by launching a new website called The Blaze, to feature news. Beck launched The Blaze that will feature news videos and commentary.
The Blaze is Glenn Beck’s latest project. The website launched Monday night. The message on the site says its “a place where you can find breaking news, original reporting, insightful opinions and engaging videos about the stories that matter most,” according to Beck.
Beck stated that the website “will be about current news — and more. It’s not just politics and policy. It’s looking for insight, wherever we find it. We’ll examine our culture, deal with matters of faith and family, and we won’t be afraid of a history lesson.”
In addition to the new website, he is the host of the Glenn Beck Program on Fox News Channel, the host of a nationally syndicated talk-radio show, an author of six New York Times-bestselling books and the founder of Mercury Radio Arts. In 2009, Beck earned $32 million through a mix of books, radio, TV, digital media, and speaking fees.
The 46-year-old was frustrated with the way the media covered his “Restoring Honor” rally this weekend. “Too many times we see mainstream media outlets distorting facts to fit rigid agendas,” he wrote. “Not that you’ve ever heard me complain about the media before. Okay, maybe once or twice. But there comes a time when you have to stop complaining and do something. And so we decided to hire some actual journalists to launch a new website,” Glenn Beck wrote on The Blaze.
