Glenn's show is about more than just what the democrats are saying about the republicans and vice versa. It's about the future of the country, what's happening in the news, and how it relates to your life.
His show is both very informative and entertaining at the same time. Glenn uses comedy on his show like no other. Whether it's making fun of Al Gore and global warming, or government bailouts; Glenn's humor makes a point, and makes you laugh at the same time.
Glenn started in radio when he was only 13 years old by winning a local radio contest to be a DJ for an hour. Soon after that auspicious day, Glenn had three jobs - one at a Christian station, a Rock station, and a Country station, all of which his parents had to schlep him to in their home state of Washington. He was fired from all three jobs on the same day when he was 14 years old! After high school graduation, Glenn pursued his career as a Top 40 DJ at stations all over the country. Eventually, he landed an opportunity in Corpus Christi, Texas, as the youngest morning guy in the U.S. at 18 years old. His career was soaring and took him to Top 40 morning shows in Baltimore, Houston, Phoenix, Washington, and New Haven, Conn. He rode the wave of professional success into the 1990s when things began to change. Today, Glenn points out, when you have that kind of success that early in life, it's easy for you to turn into a monster. And I did! I was not a good guy.
At the age of 30, Glenn lost his passion for radio, and everything else, as alcoholism and drug addiction took him over. Struggling to find some answers to his problem, Glenn pursued higher education. Though he was accepted by Yale as a Theology major, he lasted only one semester, faced with a divorce from his first wife and separation from his two daughters, the oldest with Cerebral Palsy. He was emotionally and financially decimated and relegated to one of the smallest radio markets. The shooting radio star had fallen to earth.
Finally, he turned to a program of recovery. Coming to terms with his past and staying sober shifted his life direction. He found a new love (his second wife, Tania), religion (he was baptized Mormon in 2000), and a new vision of his career; he would pursue talk radio.
