Fox News host and author Glenn Beck has been named closing speaker at the 2010 Conservative Political Action Conference, which begins on Feb. 18 in Washington, D.C.
CPAC, sponsored by the American Conservative Union Foundation in association with Human Events and Young America's Foundation, is expected to bring together more than 10,000 conservative students and activists.
Beck will speak on Saturday, Feb. 20, the third and last day of the conference at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel.
"Glenn Beck's popularity comes in part because his message of personal responsibility and individual rights resonates with not just self-described conservatives, but with Americans as a whole," said CPAC Chairman David A. Keene.
"He's the host of a top-rated cable news show that bears his name, a best-selling author, and a celebrated radio broadcaster. I am certain that his insightful and accessible take on the issues of the day will be a memorable conclusion to our biggest and best CPAC ever.”
Beck said, “I’m truly honored and flattered to be the keynote speaker.”
Other prominent conservatives joining him at the conference includeNewt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Anne Coulter, John Bolton, Marco Rubio, Andrew Breitbart, Gov. Tim Pawlenty, and Rep. Ron Paul, among many others.
