Conservative media personality Glenn Beck has signed a radio deal with Premiere Networks that’s worth $100 million over five years, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The deal is worth about double the previous five-year pact he signed in 2007, the story says. That deal was signed when he also had a major TV outlet for his views, on Fox News.
The syndicated "Glenn Beck Program" regularly pulls 10 million listeners a week, and is behind only Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity’s radio programs in audience, the story notes.
The deal comes a year after Beck left Fox News. He continues to grow his subscription-based Web-only network GBTV.
