Rush Limbaugh launched his phenomenally successful radio broadcast into national syndication on August 1, 1988, with 56 radio stations. Twenty years later it is heard on nearly 600 stations by up to 20 million people each week and is the highest rated national radio talk show in America.
Known as the media pundit who reshaped the political landscape with his entertaining and informative brand of conservatism, Mr. Limbaugh is also widely credited with resuscitating AM radio by many industry experts.
In addition to his radio program, broadcast weekdays from noon to 3 p.m. ET, Mr. Limbaugh hosts “The Rush Limbaugh Morning Update,” a 90-second commentary which debuted in March 1992 and airs Monday through Friday. “The Rush Limbaugh Show” and “The Rush Limbaugh Morning Update” are produced and distributed by Premiere Radio Networks.
With his diverse media background, Mr. Limbaugh is also the author of “The Limbaugh Letter,” the most widely read political newsletter in the country, as well as two best-selling books, The Way Things Ought to Be and See, I Told You So, which have sold more than 8.9 million copies. The sales of See, I Told You So set an American publishing record.
In 2000, Mr. Limbaugh tackled the Internet, expanding his media dominance with the launch of RushLimbaugh.com. Employing cutting edge technology, it is one of the most popular radio broadcasting websites. It offers subscribers the opportunity to experience his show via video and audio Podcasting as well as live streaming audio.
Glenn Beck, one of America's leading multi-media personalities, is the founder and owner of TheBlaze, a 24/7 news, information and opinion network that is available on television and online. TheBlaze.com attracts over 35 million unique visitors per month. Beck’s quick wit, candid opinions and engaging personality have made The Glenn Beck Program the third highest rated radio program in America and his unique blend of modern-day storytelling and insightful views on current events allowed him to achieve the extraordinary feat of having #1 New York Times bestsellers in both fiction and non-fiction. Beck also hosts acclaimed live-events, oversees the fashion brand 1791 and is the publisher of GlennBeck.com. He previously hosted a phenomenally successful show on Fox News and CNN's Headline News.
While Beck entered the media world as a DJ at the tender age of 13, everything changed when he found a new vision of his career - talk radio. In 2002, he launched The Glenn Beck Program on just 47 stations with the mission to make listeners "feel goodness from my show and accept me for who I am, flaws and all." Nothing has been the same since.
Today, just a few years later, he owns his own television network, his radio show can be heard across the country on over 400 stations, his books reach the top of bestseller lists and he travels across the country performing his live stage show to sold-out audiences. Across all of these mediums, Beck connects with his fans in a whole new way, inspiring and entertaining them with his humor, hard-hitting interviews and honest tales about his life.

Trent is a sixth generation United States farmer with a passion for agriculture that started years ago – he had his first pig when he was just 5 years old on the family farm near Quincy, IL. He established his strong rural foundation in farming side-by-side with his father and grandfather. That strong connection between man and his God-given natural resources was the source for all of their farm management decisions. While Trent recalls walking soybeans with his two role models, his real fondness was for the animals. He and his father eventually built a swine seedstock business that supplied top-quality genetics to pork producers nationwide.
When anti-agricultural activists threatened the way of life he cherished, it was time to take a stand. Consumers, even individuals in other aspects of agriculture, were listening to and believing the lies being spread by celebrities and vegan zealots. Somebody needed to speak on behalf of the hard-working farmers and ranchers of America. Trent accepted the challenge.
In Spearfish, SD, Trent told radio personality Jim Thompson that he wanted to have his own radio show. Being a little more than determined, or perhaps a bit bull-headed, Loos Tales launched in January of 2001. Today, the show airs on over 100 stations nationwide and boasts 3 million listeners on-air and online. Sharing the message about the people and places in rural America is a step toward re-connecting consumers to their food. Trent has been doing this since long before it was the “cool, foodie” thing to it.
In 2008, Trent was recognized as the “Voice of Rural America” by the West Quest organization for his ground-breaking work in advocating for agriculture and speaking on behalf of the folks who would rather stay home and tend to their crops and livestock than take on those attacking their life-sustaining industry.
Trent and his wife Kelli enjoy life in central Nebraska with their three daughters. Cattle, hogs, horses and meat goats keep them plenty busy on the farm. The family is constantly on the go, sharing adventures in training and riding horses, youth sports, 4-H, archery and road trips. Some of their favorite memories are created around the fire pit with friends and family they’ve welcomed from far and wide.
