Forbes: Glenn Beck earned more than Oprah over last year

Perennial presidential pretender, real estate mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump also made the list in 30th place. Forbes estimated the grandiose billionaire earned a relatively paltry $63 million, less than the estimated earnings of Beck and Limbaugh.

Conservative personalities Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity all made Forbes magazine’s 2013 list of the 100 most powerful celebrities — the only political celebrities, left or right, to do so.

Among the three, Beck led the way. Forbes estimated that he earned a staggering $90 million dollars over the last 12 months, more than even Oprah Winfrey, who earned an estimated $77 million and took the top spot on Forbes’ list.

Despite being the 7th highest earner on the list, Beck was ranked 34th overall.

Limbaugh, who hosts the number one political radio talk show in America, came in just three spots behind Beck on the list in 37th place. Forbes estimated he earned $66 million over the last 12 months.

As for Fox News’ Hannity, he was ranked as the 72nd most powerful celebrity, raking in an estimated $30 million.
