We've known for a couple of weeks that Glenn Beck was eying a Westlake manse, but this morning on his radio show he made it official. Let's go to the "fusion of entertainment and enlightenment" hisself for the official what-for:
"I'm moving to Dallas, Texas, and my family is there now, and I will be there shortly. We're keeping our business, Mercury, in New York. Nobody is surprised by this, I'm sure. We have been planning for a long time," Glenn said.
"We are moving to Dallas and we're going to build a film and television center and radio center in Dallas and we're going to create some jobs with people who know how to create jobs in Texas," he promised.
"The thing I wanted to tell you is we are changing our life because I actually believe in the things that I tell you every day. And we've started GBTV which is already more wildly successful than we had imagined that we would be. It's not even on the air yet and it's already successful."
"Stand together with GBTV and we'll try to work together and change the country, based in Texas."
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
