Glenn Beck puts his private jet up for sale as his media empire falls apart
As his media empire collapses, Glenn Beck listed his private jet for sale, according to the Daily Beast.
On the Federal Aviation Administration records, Beck is selling his 996 DC9-15 aircraft for an undisclosed price. The jet is registered under number N8860.
The jet was purchased by Mercury Radio Arts, Beck’s radio production company for a million dollars. The ad for his plane boasts of its “2014 New Custom Paint’ and “2011 Universal Avionics Flight Deck Upgrade.” Beck purchased the plane from billionaire Richard Mellon Scaif.
Beck’s spending habits have come under much scrutiny from employees as his media empire The Blaze crumbles. Employees at the company criticized Beck for his spending habits. The company underwent mass layoffs in 2015 and 2016, and at one point Beck fired nearly 40 people.
Beck, with a net worth of $250 million, has not responded to a request for comment.
