Forbes Profile Reveals Glenn Beck Is Highest-Paid Pundit This Year At $80 Million
Mediaite ^ | 5/16/12 | Frances Martel

While Glenn Beck has been keeping a comparatively low profile since his meteoric rise on Fox News in 2009, but that doesn’t mean he’s doing all that badly– in fact, he’s doing better than ever before in terms of income– and better than any other political celebrity. Forbes‘ Power 100 reveals today that, while in overall ranking including influence in the media, Beck is in 23rd place, he outshines Rush Limbaugh, Donald Trump and Alec Baldwin in the income department.

Politico‘s Dylan Byers took a look at the rankings by number, and found Beck tied at #11 with Elton John for the most money made this year– an impressive amount, especially given that in 2010, at the peak of Beck’s fame, he made a comparatively paltry $32 million (and was on the cover of Forbes for it). Continuing to go down the list of most successful financially, one will find among those ranked below Beck Donald Trump, Lady Gaga, Roger Federer, and Beyoncé.

While his fame– or at least fame as considered in the political pundit world– has diminished somewhat, Forbes explains that his network, GBTV, really paid off, and that his publishing company is stronger than ever.

The very best thing he could do at this point is to create a school for doing what he did. By this I mean a “knowledge base” of conservative journalism, with high quality standards, to bring back “credible journalism”.

I believe that is what he is up to...there are a LOT of young adults involved with 'The Blaze' and 'GBTV'. His expose of Obama's past is one of the best Beck segments I have ever seen...
