LEHI, Utah County (ABC 4 Utah) - Media personality Glenn Beck was in Utah Friday checking on his new, live show set to debut July 6th at the Usana Amphitheatre.

It has been a busy week for Beck. He spend much of this week in Moore, Oklahoma covering the tornado disaster for his many media outlets and, more importantly, delivering supplies for tornado victims. His Mercury One charity quickly put together the relief run from Dallas, Texas and was on the road with two semi-trucks by Monday night.

For his part, Beck was astonished by the negative comments his efforts drew on social media. Some accused him of grandstanding. "I'm sitting in those tractor trailers and we're driving up and I see the hatred in people. For what? For what?," asked Beck. "When did we stop being the people that comes together in tragedies?"

In fact, Beck has been quick to give credit to his fans who have already given more than 1-point-5 million dollars for the people of Moore, Oklahoma.

My interview with Beck covered more than just the tragedy in Oklahoma. We also talked about his upcoming show and the Lehi studio that's producing it, about his new status as a media mogul, the hard choices he's made along the way and his regrets.

In some people, money and power lead to arrogance. It seems to have had the opposite effect on Beck.

Watch for more of my interview with Glenn Beck Monday on ABC 4 Utah at 10:00.
