Say what you will about Glenn Beck, when it comes to his finances, the man is massively successful.As Mark Leibovich reports in an upcoming New York Times Magazine profile (which was published online today), between Beck’s Fox News Channel salary and his “growing multimedia and merchandising empire,” he earned $35 million between June 2009 and June 2010.

Sure, a lot of advertisers don’t want to be associated with him and his TV ratings are sliding. But how much could he possibly care considering he’s that rich and FNC only accounts for a mere $2.5 million per year of his total earnings?

Anyway, we recommend reading Leibovich’s piece in its entirety.

During a darker period of his life in the early '90s, a newly-divorced Glenn Beck lived in a soup-smelling two-bedroom apartment with a tiny kitchen and olive green shag carpet.

But Beck's probably not too concerned considering Fox News upped his salary from $2.5 million in 2010 to $2.7 million next year.
