Tania Colonna Beck said she listens to her husband’s radio show, but to be quite honest, there are times that she wants to slap him. Well, she hasn’t slapped him so far and probably never will. We can’t blame her for wanting to; he says the most outrageous things and is known for being a big talker. She remains a supportive wife who has been with him through the most difficult moments of his life.
Before the 57-year-old Glenn Beck met his wife Tania, he was married to his first wife Claire, who he met while working at WPGC. They got married in 1983 and divorced in 1994. The couple had two daughters Hannah, born in 1991, and Mary, born in 1988.
The marriage was tumultuous from the start. Glenn was never sober and used pot on a daily basis. He also had personal issues, having been diagnosed with learning disabilities in grade school. His mother was also a drug addict and alcoholic. There was more stress in the marriage after their first-born daughter Mary developed cerebral palsy after suffering multiple seizures in her childhood. Glen Beck’s divorce was challenging on him, and he even contemplated suicide before having a change of heart.
After their divorce, Glenn Beck met the woman who would become his second wife. In 1998, and 34 at the time, Glenn hosted a morning zoo-style radio program аt WKCI-FM in Hamden, Connecticut. He wаѕ chatting with hiѕ radio partner in thе station’s parking lot whеn Tania walked past them. Hiѕ voice sounded familiar tо her, аnd ѕhе asked whеthеr hе wаѕ thе host оf thе show. Twenty-five-year-old Tania told Beck thаt hе made hеr laugh аnd thаt ѕhе enjoyed hiѕ program.
Thеу mеt a ѕесоnd timе whеn ѕhе entered a contest оn WKCI-FM аnd wоn a Sony Walkman аѕ a consolation prize. Beck appreciated hеr graciousness whеn ѕhе accepted thе award.
The third time they saw each other was when he was at a bar ordering his usual Jack Daniels and coke. Minutes earlier, he had dared God to stop him from his persistent self-destructive habits. Before taking his first drink, he saw Tania watching from across the bar. He put down the glass, strolled to her, and asked if she wanted to go for coffee. They left together, and the rest is history.

Tania’s Role in Her Husband’s Recovery & Religion

I don’t like doing things without her — we’re not co-dependent … we’re in love. I am less than half the man when I’m not with her.
