My wife and I got back late today from a few days in New York (very late, as a matter of fact, as it’s the next day now).
As some of you know, I do a bit of writing (okay, every month)Ã‚Â for Glenn Beck’s “Fusion Magazine.” Glenn also of course has a nationally syndicated radio show and a nightly program on CNN Headline News –Ã‚Â the latter is an offering that I sincerely believe is going to take over the cable news race in the evenings. If you haven’t seen it, check it out. There are so many reasons I think the program is destined for good things, but it would take to long to outline the reasons, so I’ll save that for a later day.Ã‚Â
While in NY, we visited the Time/Warner building and got a little tour of the television studio for Glenn’s show, and the next day made our way over to Radio City, chatted a bit with Glenn, and ended up on the air with himÃ‚Â during the last half-hour. WeÃ‚Â were on afterÃ‚Â John Stossel, who is a tough act to follow.
I’ve been around the media biz full timeÃ‚Â for well over a dozen years now, and I’ve got to say that Glenn and his staff are some of the nicest, funniest,Ã‚Â loosest, impromptu –Ã‚Â and yet some of theÃ‚Â most professional people in the business. Liz, Kevin, Stu, and everybody else were the best as well.
In the studio next door to us, Rush Limbaugh was preparing for his upcomingÃ‚Â broadcast, and while weÃ‚Â were in the studio talking to Glenn during a commercial break, the doors opened and in walked Ryan Seacrest. I held back any urge there may have been to do an impromptu tryout for American Idol. Ryan was a nice guy as well, though I had him beaten soundlyÃ‚Â on the “six-day-growth” look. Neither one of us travel with a razor, apparently.
Anyway, the bottom line is, if you aren’t a listener/viewer/reader of Glenn Beck’s many ventures, give it a shot. I can’t tout his shows enough.
No, I didn’t get paid to say any of this, but I have been up for over 24 hours and am punchy. Home finally. Time for bed.
