Glenn Beck: Why Would GOP Choose Fox Business to Host Debate?

“Fox Business has about 12 people watching. About eight of them on the second floor of the Fox News Corp.”

The second 2024 Republican Presidential Debate continues to be a point of contention in conservative media circles for a bevy of reasons. TheBlaze founder Glenn Beck is taking issue with the network the debate aired on.

During a TV special late last week, Beck questioned why the Republican National Committee would choose Fox Business Network, which is in an estimated 10 million fewer homes than Fox News, to host an event.

“Why would the GOP want this on Fox? Not Fox News, Fox Business, which has about 12 people watching. About eight of them on the second floor of the Fox News Corp,” Beck said. “Well, no, nope, nope. Sorry. I don’t know if Murdoch’s watching anymore. So maybe there’s 11 people watching that.”

Beck’s comments came after saying Dana Perino was “the best person on there”, before criticizing the anchor for her involvement with the Clinton Global Initiative in the leadup to the debate.

Glenn Beck added that he believed both the Republican National Committee and Fox News are “going down the crapper”, using the debate as his proof.

The longtime radio host also shared his sympathy for Fox News being paired with Univision by the RNC, adding that candidates were put in a difficult situation by the accent of the network’s Ilia Calderón.

“I felt bad for the candidates because I could barely understand what she was saying. And if any of those candidates said ‘I’m sorry, I didn’t catch that’, they would have immediately been called racist of course by the mainstream media,” concluded Beck.

Former nationally syndicated radio host Mark Kaye has announced a new podcast and video simulcast project that is set to debut on Monday, July 15th.

Mark Kaye Saves the Republic will launch from the Republican National Convention next week in Milwaukee.

It is the first project from the former radio host since he departed Cox Media Group as a nationally syndicated host in the 12-3 PM ET timeslot as the company’s replacement for Rush Limbaugh. His program originated from 104.5 WOKV in Jacksonville before he exited the post in February of this year. He was replaced on most stations by The Erick Erickson Show, which originates from sister station 95.5 WSB in Atlanta.

In addition to an audio podcast, the program will also feature a video simulcast on YouTube. Currently, Kaye has more than 33,000 subscribers on his channel.

After more than a decade, 710 KNUS weekend host Randy Corporan has hosted his last show for the Denver news/talk station.

According to the host, Salem Media Group informed him it would not be renewing his contract late last month.

Corporan told CompleteColorado.com that after the death of his wife in June of last year, he considered ending the show. However, he persisted, commuting an hour and a half one way to continue the show.

He added that since announcing his exit, he has been contacted by “truly conservative outlets” to continue his program, but said he won’t begin a new show until after the 2024 election.

“I want to get the start of my new life going and sort myself out,” he said. “And I want to take care of some personal problems that need to be dealt with.”

Randy Corporan is listed as one of the defendants — along with Salem Media Group, parent company to 710 KNUS — in a defamation lawsuit brought forth by Dominion Voting Systems over what the election machine company calls “false claims of fraud in the 2020 election.”
