Conservative radio talk show host Glenn Beck has signed a contract extension with Premiere Radio Networks reportedly worth $50 million over five years.
The money from Premiere – a subsidiary of Clear Channel Communications — would come through a combination of salary and profit-sharing from syndication, according to the New York Times, and would make Beck the third highest-paid talk radio host after leader Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.
Beck is also No. 3 in listeners in the key 25-to-54-year-old demographic, and has enjoyed a 16 percent increase in that age group in the past year, Arbitron ratings show.
His three-hour morning program is carried by nearly 300 stations nationwide.
“We’re very excited to extend our relationship with Premiere and Clear Channel,” Beck said in a statement.
“In just six years, we have attracted one of the largest and most passionate fan bases in all of radio. We look forward to building off that success and working with our loyal listeners, affiliates and advertisers to continue creating an entertaining, informative and engaging show well into the next decade.”
In addition to his radio show, Beck also hosts his self-titled TV show on Headline News, publishes Fusion, a monthly magazine with tens of thousands of subscribers, and is the best-selling author of “The Real America.”
