Daily Caller: Glenn Beck’s Internet venture begins streaming
Glenn Beck’s Internet venture begins streaming
GBTV will offer a two-hour weekday program featuring Mr. Beck, which is available as part of a two-tiered paid-subscription package. Reuters reported that the site already has more subscribers than the Oprah Winfrey Network.
Subscribers will find a GBTV launch schedule dominated by three hours of Mr. Beck’s radio show per day - programming already available in syndication over the air for free. An additional two hours consist of Mr. Beck’s new Internet-only television show. GBTV said it will add programming from contributors including Brian Sack, Raj Nair, S.E. Cupp and Amy Holmes.
Some analysts are skeptical of the venture. Bloomberg reported that up to one-third of GBTV subscribers do not represent new revenue, because they already are subscribers to the online premium-content version of Mr. Beck’s radio show.
The schedule shows no Saturday or Sunday programming for GBTV’s first weekend, and no online schedule is available past the first week of operations.
Others are more optimistic: Forbes has reported a BTIG Research analyst’s projection of GBTV’s revenues at $27 million per year, with the potential for the venture to pay as much as $135 million per year.
Justin Bieber wants to be a family man
Before you know it, pop prince Justin Bieber might use his hit song “Baby” to serenade his own offspring.
In a recent interview with Women’s Wear Daily, the 17-year-old said he’d like to settle down and become a family man in the next decade.
“Well by 25 or 26, I want to see myself, like, married or start looking for a family,” Justin told Women’s Wear Daily on Thursday. “I want to be a young dad.”
Perhaps the Canadian dance sensation is drawing from experience. Justin’s mother, Patti Mallette, became pregnant with the Teen Choice Award winner as a teenager and raised him primarily as a single mom.
