WASHINGTON, DC – Talk radio personality Glenn Beck of Premiere Radio Networks will host the NAB Marconi Radio Awards Dinner & Show on Thursday, September 27 during The NAB Radio Show in Charlotte.
Heard on more than 270 radio stations, The Glenn Beck Program is currently the third highest-rated national talk show among adults ages 25 to 54.
Beck's radio career began at 13, when he won a local radio contest that eventually led to a part-time job. In 2001, he made his talk radio debut on WFLA-AM Tampa, where he took a program ranked 18th in the market to first within his first year. Shortly thereafter, The Glenn Beck Program went national, debuting on 47 stations in January 2002.
Beck's career expanded to television in 2006 when he joined CNN Headline News. His hour-long program, Glenn Beck, offers an unconventional perspective on the news of the day and has enjoyed substantial ratings growth in several different audience demographics.
Established in 1989 and named after inventor and Nobel Prize winner Guglielmo Marconi, The NAB Marconi Radio Awards are given to radio stations and outstanding on-air personalities to recognize excellence in radio. Winners will be announced at the NAB Marconi Radio Awards Dinner & Show at the Charlotte Convention Center.
