After six years of a self-imposed hiatus from the Conservative Political Action Conference, also known as CPAC, Glenn Beck has confirmed he will be closing out the event this year.
The conservative radio host announced that he will be giving the closing keynote speech at the event, which runs from March 2 – 5, on his radio program Friday.
Beck said he was “very excited” to be a part of the event this year on social media despite past criticisms.

Beck has been outspoken about his dislike for the event organizers bringing in mainly establishment Republicans to speak, according to The Blaze, a publication that Beck founded.
Fox News host Sean Hannity, radio host Marc Levin and presidential candidate Ted Cruz have also been confirmed for the event. Donald Trump, Michelle Malkin and others are also listed on the CPAC site as speakers.
