Glenn Beck will do it his way, but not in New York, New York

Posted on

Where in the world is Glenn Beck? On Saturday, the answer was Albany, where he told a live audience that his future plans did not include New York City. He’s sold his Connecticut home and intends to build a new media empire that will “deliver news directly to the youth of America,” according to WireReport.com. “I’m going to make sure that Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart don’t occupy the space of comedy alone.” Though Beck seems intent on starting fresh in a new metropolis, a source with knowledge of the situation says that Beck’s Mercury Radio Arts and its 50 employees will remain in New York. Still, that probably won’t prevent Jon Stewart from gleefully bidding Beck adieu, as he once did for Rush Limbaugh.

But where will Beck anchor the base of his future venture? Beck’s camp isn’t ready to announce that detail, but there’s no reason we can’t speculate. My suggestion: Independence, Mo. It’s subtle. Beck likes subtle.

Where would you recommend Beck base his new operation? Vote below.
