While Glenn Beck has been keeping a comparatively low profile since his meteoric rise on Fox News in 2009, but that doesnt mean hes doing all that badly in fact, hes 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.

Politicos 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 Becks 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.
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...
Thank you, marygam. I will dig out my armor, brave up, and take a peek at his pages there! d:D
