Amy Holmes Joins Glenn Beck's GBTV Network As Anchor

Glenn Beck's GBTV announced Tuesday that Amy Holmes--a well-known commentator on many cable news shows--is joining the web TV network as its news anchor.

Holmes is perhaps most famous as a regular on CNN, where she played the right-leaning foil to a long list of liberal guests and panelists. Her official role for Beck will be as the anchor of several news segments on GBTV throughout the day. The segments will carry the brand of The Blaze, Beck's news website.

GBTV is launching Sept. 12. Beck is moving his titular television show there, and expanding it to two hours--up from the hour-long program he hosted on Fox News.
