Video: Tour Glenn Beck’s new digs

posted at 10:40 am on July 12, 2011 by Tina Korbe

You might have been able to guess it or have read it somewhere else yesterday, but Glenn Beck is officially moving to Dallas, Tex., where, he says, he’s going to “create jobs with people who know how to create jobs.” Here, via Gawker, the video tour of his new house:

Beck plans to build a film and television center as well as a radio center in Dallas. He’ll also be busy with GBTV, of course. Of his decision to move, he had this to say:

The thing I wanted to tell you is we are changing our life because I actually believe in the things that I tell you every day. And we’ve started GBTV which is already more wildly successful than we had imagined that we would be. It’s not even on the air yet and it’s already successful.

Stand together with GBTV and we’ll try to work together and change the country, based in Texas.

As somebody from cowboy country myself (I know, I know, you Texans think Oklahoma is nothing like Texas, but I think the states have a few similarities), I’m pretty excited for Beck to experience the low cost of living, lack of winter and pull-yourself-up-by-your-actual-cowboy-boot-straps work ethic that characterize the area.

I’m trying to care about this, but you know, my give-a-damn’s on the fritz today!

pilamaye on July 12, 2011 at 10:42 AM

I’ll say it’s bigger.

txsurveyor on July 12, 2011 at 10:43 AM

Beck, I will be forever thankful for the job you did.

camtheman7 on July 12, 2011 at 10:43 AM

Tina. Fix the picture on the front page.

NotCoach on July 12, 2011 at 10:43 AM

Nice. Very happy for GB.

SPGuy on July 12, 2011 at 10:43 AM

Wish him the best of luck on his new ventures. But I still think he’s a pompous, whiney, annoying idiot.

Tommy_G on July 12, 2011 at 10:44 AM

Now turn it red!!!!

Cindy Munford on July 12, 2011 at 10:45 AM

My care-o-meter is at zero and I was born & raised in Dallas.

hanzblinx on July 12, 2011 at 10:45 AM

Is the size of the picture on the front page a commentary on the new place? Or is it just a mistake? (I’m hoping it’s the former!)

TSUGambler on July 12, 2011 at 10:45 AM

Tina. Fix the picture on the front page.

NotCoach on July 12, 2011 at 10:43 AM

Nah, leave it alone. The oversized picture works within the context of the story.

Doughboy on July 12, 2011 at 10:45 AM

Where everything’s bigger.

Especially the pictures!

Abby Adams on July 12, 2011 at 10:46 AM

Glenn Beck is officially moving to Dallas, Tex., where, he says, he’s going to “create jobs with people who know how to create jobs.”

Sort of like his own little Atlas Shrugged.

Chip on July 12, 2011 at 10:46 AM

His place is so big, its taking over the whole front page of Hot Air!

portlandon on July 12, 2011 at 10:46 AM

When did Robin Leach start blogging at Hot Air?

Mark1971 on July 12, 2011 at 10:47 AM

Good for Beck.

Note well, liberals, he didn’t choose CA, IL, MI, WA, or OR.

BuckeyeSam on July 12, 2011 at 10:47 AM

How does the old joke go again?

Q: Why doesn’t Texas float off into the Gulf?

A: Because Oklahoma sucks.

NeverContango on July 12, 2011 at 10:48 AM

Great move. I hope businesses keep making good decisions like this. There’s no reason for most businesses to stay and get looted in places like NY anymore.

Got a chuckle out of his quote though. If I read it without knowing who said it, I’d have guessed Donald Trump for sure:

“It’s not even on the air yet and it’s already successful.”

forest on July 12, 2011 at 10:48 AM

Nah, leave it alone. The oversized picture works within the context of the story.

Doughboy on July 12, 2011 at 10:45 AM

It would if the sidebar ads weren’t running right down the middle of it. :P

NotCoach on July 12, 2011 at 10:48 AM

Nice pool, Glenn. What’s your pool boy’s name…Ramon?
Just kidding. Gotta believe you’ll be happier in Texas than in NY. What sane person wouldn’t?

Nice house and the chance to dance was an added bonus.

Cindy Munford on July 12, 2011 at 10:49 AM

(I know, I know, you Texans think Oklahoma is nothing like Texas, but I think the states have a few similarities),

Can’t wait for the Texans to chime in on this.

rbj on July 12, 2011 at 10:49 AM

Following in the footsteps of American Airlines, JC Penney and Exxon/Mobil in relocating from New York to the D-FW area for both economic/tax and ideological purposes (Penney’s was hounded for years by the ILGWU folks in NYC over where they bought their merchandise while Exxon/Mobil is pretty much a given for demonization by the activist left up there. Why stay in a place that wants to not just grab a big chunk of your earnings but also make you life miserable in public for how you earn the money?)

jon1979 on July 12, 2011 at 10:50 AM

I used to love Beck, but the past few years, he’s become sorta creepy. Almost like the leader of a cult. The crying, the speaking on every issue on earth whether he has any knowledge on the subject or not, the weird messianic vibes he puts out, the crying…

TheBlueSite on July 12, 2011 at 10:50 AM

Odie1941 on July 12, 2011 at 10:49 AM

Oh, settle down.

Cindy Munford on July 12, 2011 at 10:51 AM

ZOMG….that IS big!

Now turn it red!!!!

Cindy Munford on July 12, 2011 at 10:45 AM

Laughing my butt off. :D

hoosiermama on July 12, 2011 at 10:51 AM

He’s clearly not being taxed enough.

cjtony97 on July 12, 2011 at 10:52 AM

Welcome to the Big D, Glenn…

phreshone on July 12, 2011 at 10:53 AM

Never say Texans don’t like Oklahoma! If Oklahoma didn’t suck so bad, Texas would slide off into the Gulf! (I’m originally from Kansas, so what do you think helps hold Oklahoma in place?)

Glen, welcome home (he’s been a Texan at heart for a long time; it just took a while- and reviewing tax bills- to discover it.)

michaelo on July 12, 2011 at 10:53 AM

Where everything’s bigger…including the front page picture…

Nice place, though.

NavyspyII on July 12, 2011 at 10:54 AM

Lovely home!

You deserve it, Glenn.

PattyJ on July 12, 2011 at 10:54 AM

There goes even more revenue from New York, Great tax policy. Obumba taking notes.

Dingbat63 on July 12, 2011 at 10:54 AM

HA! Awesome new digs. Success is the best revenge!

He did say the left would “BEG” him to go back to cable tv at FOX.

Looks like his prediction may come to pass. Big things coming from Beck.

Cindy Munford on July 12, 2011 at 10:55 AM

Is the super sized picture on the front page an intentional pun on the whole “bigger” thing?

Daemonocracy on July 12, 2011 at 10:55 AM

Beck needs to pay his “fair share” dammit!!

JAM on July 12, 2011 at 10:56 AM

I love it! I hope Glenn and his family will be very happy in their new home. I’m sure they’ll love Texas (wish I was there).

Lizzy on July 12, 2011 at 10:57 AM

It’s NOT DALLAS, dag-nabbit! Westlake is closer to Grapevine, over here on the Fort Worth (read: SANE) side of the Metroplex.

txhsdad on July 12, 2011 at 11:00 AM

Welcome to TX Glenn and family. Good luck with your new adventure. I sure miss him on Fox and won’t watch those on at his time spot. Glenn is in Israel for the week and will return again in August for a huge get together with people from all over the world to show support for Israel and their citizens. He said several who are running for president will be there also. I wonder if Sarah will be there?

Umm, Tina, what’s this “Texas” business? It’s Baja Oklahoma, cowgirl.

P.S. Best of luck to Glenn and his family.

J.E. Dyer on July 12, 2011 at 11:04 AM

Hopefully Rush will use the GBTV studios the 4 or 5 times he needs to evacuate Palm Beach for Hurricane warnings… Why pay NY taxes for those days either…

phreshone on July 12, 2011 at 11:07 AM

Er, no. The old joke is:

Why is it so windy in Oklahoma?
Becuase Texas blows and Kansas sucks.

(wish I was there).

Lizzy on July 12, 2011 at 10:57 AM

They’re looking at a high today of 101º, glad I’m not there.

Tommy_G on July 12, 2011 at 11:10 AM

The crying, the speaking on every issue on earth whether he has any knowledge on the subject or not, the weird messianic vibes he puts out, the crying…

If Beck ever asks you to join him in Guyana for a spiritual retreat, politely decline.

Bishop on July 12, 2011 at 11:11 AM

A beautiful home for Glenn, Tanya and family….large but not over-the-top. Well deserved – I don’t know of many folks who work harder than he does. Watched “The Five” yesterday…not very good, IMO. I miss Glenn and look forward to GBTV.

Good for Glenn. Capitalism works.

Look at all the jealous trolls on this thread.

Indian Outlaw on July 12, 2011 at 11:22 AM

What inanity. This is a far more interesting article on Glenn Beck: Glenn Beck Addresses Knesset in Israel – “If We Are Silent, Evil Will Win”

Conservative U.S. television commentator Glenn Beck received several rounds of applause by Israeli lawmakers as he voiced his unequivocal support for Israel during a visit to Jerusalem. He spoke Monday before a packed parliamentary committee….

slickwillie2001 on July 12, 2011 at 11:22 AM

Yeee Haw! They’re picken and a grinnin! Love the music.

Vince on July 12, 2011 at 11:23 AM

I was born and raised in Texas. I love my culture and the people laws etc.
But man, I couldn’t take the heat anymore or the cold.

The illegal alien population is also completely off the chart.

lack of winter

But you sure have summer in spades.

Currently 64 degrees at 9:30am in the Denver area. We’ve had a couple of weeks of low 80s and rain every day, it’s been fabulous. The humidity has been high though, around 50%.

Common Sense on July 12, 2011 at 11:28 AM

Isn’t he moving to Westlake? Which is in Denton County, northwest of Grapevine, 35 miles from Dallas. You think Glenn was annoyed with NYC? If he had actually moved to Dallas, he’d face just as corrupt politicians from where he left from. John Wiley Price comes to mind….

cebj25 on July 12, 2011 at 11:29 AM

Future governor?

faraway on July 12, 2011 at 11:30 AM

Pretty low key for someone with his money. If I had to spend $1 million a year on security, I’d live in Texas too. All in all, the place is pretty low key for a guy with his money, and tasteful too.

IMHO, Beck is a national hero. Kudos Beckster.

eaglesdontflock on July 12, 2011 at 11:38 AM

Did you hear about the Aggie that moved to Oklahoma? The average IQ of both states went up.

davidcaskey on July 12, 2011 at 11:40 AM

Eh, Beck’s carbon footprint still isn’t as big as Al Gore’s. Get back to me when that happens.

MNHawk on July 12, 2011 at 11:41 AM

Good for Glenn. I hope is new venture is a huge success.

Too bad he’s not keepin’ all that taxable income in New York. I love to see folks voting w/their feet.

txhsdad on July 12, 2011 at 11:00 AM

Ah, it’s in Westlake. When they said “Dallas”, I wondered where it really was. Yes, Westlake is closer to Fort Worth (and H. Ross Perot’s Alliance Airport, and the Texas Motor Speedway), and the cool Solana complex is there, on Highway 114. We drive through Westlake on the way to my SiL’s house in Justin.

Ward Cleaver on July 12, 2011 at 11:48 AM

For those commenting that their “care-o-meter” and give a shiznits are broken, well…you must care a little bit.

Otherwise why would you you feel motivated to share your lack of care? 8-) No rhyme intended.

PakviRoti on July 12, 2011 at 11:49 AM

It looks like a great place to host parties. Look at all the seating! And that pool sure looks inviting.

Good for him.

inviolet on July 12, 2011 at 11:49 AM

Welcome to Texas, Glenn! I’m surprised the NLRB allowed you to move.

cartooner on July 12, 2011 at 11:51 AM

Hope he loves hot weather.

This summer has been suffocating one between heat, humidity and wind.

But it’s all worth it.

tru2tx on July 12, 2011 at 11:51 AM

You know, I don’t begrudge Beck any of the money he’s made off of his stepping-stone gigs, which were very helpful, of course, in promoting his books. I’m glad he’ll be able to enjoy his success.

I do feel that he’s used a lot of folks along the way though, and hope he’s well aware of the corallary to the old maxim; one meets the same people on the way down that one used on the way up.

If nothing else, he set himself and his family up for life, which is admirable; but, among other things, I’m not always certain he gave credit to others when it was due.

RocketmanBob on July 12, 2011 at 11:52 AM

Okay, where is the bomb shelter?

upinak on July 12, 2011 at 11:52 AM

Looks nice but not overly extravagant. I’m sure he could afford a lot more. Good job, Mr Beck.

miConsevative on July 12, 2011 at 11:54 AM

RocketmanBob on July 12, 2011 at 11:52 AM

Where do you come up with stuff like that? You almost sound like that professor who accosted Rep. Ryan in a restaurant in DC. Do you have any credible source to suspect he merely used people to get ahead, or do you automatically assume that’s how people become successful?

cartooner on July 12, 2011 at 11:56 AM

Glenn Beck Addresses Knesset

He spoke Monday before a packed parliamentary committee….

Ok, was it the Knesset or a committee? That’s like making comments before a Congressional committee and claiming you made an address to Congress…without a tie and mussed hair no less.

BTW, good luck Glenn, isn’t America great!

jnelchef on July 12, 2011 at 11:58 AM

I hope Beck has spider-proofed his home, not that it will save him if they really want to eat his family.

Texas spiders = Crawling, skittering death

Bishop on July 12, 2011 at 11:58 AM

I see this and I keep laughing at the fact that Keith Olbermann who was having a celebration when Beck left FOX. Keith went to work as Al Gore’s lackey at a pathetic cable network because no one else would have him, while Beck is his own boss creating his own product and creating jobs. Who has the last laugh Bathtub boy?

mizflame98 on July 12, 2011 at 11:58 AM

Good for Glenn and his family! No issues or envy here…

Khun Joe on July 12, 2011 at 11:59 AM

one meets the same people on the way down that one used on the way up.

Oh yeah.

Good Lt on July 12, 2011 at 11:59 AM

Beck just gave himself and his staff a 50% raise and took it right out of the pockets of Cuomo and Bloomberg, while probably adding a few jobs here in God’s Country.

Welcome y’all.

TXUS on July 12, 2011 at 12:02 PM

Phhtt. Beck’s house is smaller than the servants’ quarters on Tom Friedman’s country estate.

slickwillie2001 on July 12, 2011 at 12:11 PM

I wonder how far he lives from George W. Bush?

mizflame98 on July 12, 2011 at 12:13 PM

mizflame98 on July 12, 2011 at 12:13 PM

My first thought, as well.

Imagine Beck in George W’s Dallas neighborhood. Not.

maverick muse on July 12, 2011 at 12:19 PM

Nice house. Good for Glenn!

I’d move to Texas too, if I didn’t hate hot weather so much.

petefrt on July 12, 2011 at 12:20 PM

Dallas mortgage or paid cash?

As if Beck is going to actually stay in one place.

Willing to answer the question posed to McCain, how many homes does he own?

maverick muse on July 12, 2011 at 12:20 PM

Nice digs Beck. You’ll like Texas much better than the maggots in New York. Classier also.

Kini on July 12, 2011 at 12:23 PM
