Beck to Announce New Radio Deal (Report -- $100 Million Contract)

If you love listening to Glenn Beck on the radio, and many, many millions of you do, you will get to do so for years to come.

The news about Beck's radio show hit the New York Times Sunday evening:

His company, Mercury Radio Arts, will announce on Monday that it has renewed its contract with Premiere Networks, keeping “The Glenn Beck Program” in syndication for five more years.

Mr. Beck’s show entered national syndication via Premiere, a unit of Clear Channel, 10 years ago. Now carried by more than 400 stations, the show typically ranks No. 3 among all news-talk radio shows.
