"LOS ANGELES (AP) Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck has signed a five-year, $100 million contract to continue his morning radio show with syndicator Premiere Networks Inc.

The details were confirmed Monday by a person with direct knowledge of the deal. The person was not authorized to speak publicly about the deal and requested anonymity.

The contract was earlier reported by The New York Times.

It marks a big pay bump for Beck. His last contract with the Clear Channel subsidiary was reportedly for $10 million a year in 2007.

The Glenn Beck Program is the nation's third-highest rated radio show behind The Rush Limbaugh Show and The Sean Hannity Show. Those two shows are also syndicated by Premiere.

Over the past five years, Beck's audience has grown nearly 50 percent and the number of stations carrying his show has doubled to more than 400.

Forbes Magazine estimates that Beck, 48, makes $80 million a year. He parted ways with Fox News Channel last year after his TV show's audience size shrank and advertisers staged a boycott following his comment that President Barack Obama had "a deep-seated hatred for white people.""

Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck has signed a five-year, $100 million contract to continue his morning radio show with syndicator Premiere Networks Inc.

Premier Networks is owned by Clear Channel Communications, which is owned by Bain Capital, which is owned by Mitt Romney. In other words, Glenn is Mitt's well paid whore giving mitt lip services.

Skilled, experienced betrayers are hard to find even in this competitive job market.

90+% of all people are "Born Followers"... telling you what to believe, what to think, those incapable of critical independent and deductive thinking.

Maybe 'Moron America' can come up with a Glenn Beck patriotic jingoism jizz song? The 'Continental Divide' message is sponsored by "American Fascism".

Though I have always wondered (being that he at least claims that Fox first came to him for a show and he turned them down before enlisting Glenn Beck for such a conspiracy theorist show), why did not Alex just agree to do the show for say five-years, meanwhile banking over a 100-million and investing most all of that into precious metals that were skyrocketing during that timeframe (and which he knew was going to), and then once his contract ended, start cashing out his cached bullion and begin his own professional network, while pulling his newly acquired Tea Party audience along with him?
