He also earned $10 million from his syndicated 3-hour show ‘The Glenn Beck Program’. The digital sales of his newsletter also managed to rake Beck an estimated $4 million. Since he is a speaker too, at many events like the ‘Bold Fresh Tour’, so he managed to earn around $3 million as his fees from speaking at public events.

Forbes said about Glenn Beck and his affinity for making money that, “Beck insists that he is not political: ‘I could give a flying crap about the political process.’ Making money, on the other hand, is to be taken very seriously, and controversy is its own coinage.” He also has a staff of around 34 people who help him manage his various pursuits.
