Glenn Beck and Clear Channel Media will launch online channel The Blaze Radio Network later this month as the home for talk-radio host Jay Severin. The net will be available on Clear Channel’s digital iHeartRadio service.
The line-up will also include a simulcast of The Glenn Beck Radio Program, America’s third-highest rated radio show which Clear Channel’s Premiere Networks syndicates to 400 affiliates, a re-launched show hosted by Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray and audio simulcasts of shows by TheBlaze TV, Glenn Beck’s media enterprise. Beck is said to have inked a new five-year, $100 million contract with Clear Channel this summer.
“We are excited to continue making TheBlaze a destination for news, information and entertainment programming across multiple platforms. Jay is an incredible talent and is the perfect host to launch TheBlaze Network,” said The Blaze prexy Joel Cheatwoods.
