KTAR's Hill Pens Beck Analysis
March 30, 2010 at 12:38 PM (PT)
BONNEVILLE Talk KTAR-F (NEWS TALK 92.3 KTAR)/PHOENIX PD RUSS HILL takes a look at why GLENN BECK's popularity and notoriety have grown in recent years in a new post on his RUSS HILL MEDIA blog. "5 Reasons GLENN BECK is Radio's Brightest Star" seeks to explain BECK's surge by looking at BECK's "one of us" warts-and-all image, his Mormon religion (HILL is a fellow Mormon and looks at BECK from that perspective), his embrace of controversy, his use of multiple platforms, and his work ethic. BECK airs on KTAR noon-3p MT weekdays.
