Salt Lake City, UT – This past summer, Fox News' Glenn Beck was boycotted by major advertisers after the conservative talk show host called President Obama a "racist." But despite losing accounts from players like Walmart and GEICO - his ratings have been skyrocketing and he's treated like something of a rock star at lectures and book signings across the country. But who is Glenn Beck? Tuesday, we'll look at Beck's ascendancy from crazed radio shock jock to a Mormon conservative at the top of the talk show game.
