LOS ANGELES (AP) - Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck has signed a five-year, $100 million contract to continue his morning radio show with syndicator Premiere Networks Inc.
The details were confirmed Monday by a person with direct knowledge of the deal. The person was not authorized to speak publicly about the deal and requested anonymity.
The contract was earlier reported by The New York Times.
It marks a big pay bump for Beck. His last contract with the Clear Channel subsidiary was reportedly for $10 million a year in 2007.
The Glenn Beck Program is the nation's third highest-rated radio show behind The Rush Limbaugh Show and The Sean Hannity Show.
Over the past five years, Beck's audience has grown nearly 50 percent and his show is carried on more than 400 stations.
