Glenn Beck, Clear Channel launch net

The Blaze to air online on iHeartRadio

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.
