TheBlaze, Glenn Beck’s news, information, entertainment, and e-commerce network, announced “TheBlaze Radio Network,” a new online radio channel. TheBlaze Radio Network will be the new exclusive home for renowned nationally syndicated talk-radio personality and Marconi Award nominee Jay Severin. The line-up will also include a simulcast of The Glenn Beck Radio Program, a re-launched show hosted by Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray and audio simulcasts of TheBlaze TV shows. TheBlaze Radio Network can be heard starting later this month on iHeartRadio, TheBlaze.com and TheBlaze iPhone and iPad apps.
Severin, former WTKK-FM and WXKS-AM Boston talker, has also been a political analyst with NBC News, CNBC, MSNBC and has appeared on Fox News, CBS, ABC, Nightline, The John McLaughlin Show, PBS, CNN and NPR. He has authored Op-Ed articles for the New York Times, The San Francisco Chronicle and The Boston Globe.
The “Jay Severin Show” features a fresh irreverent take on political and culture issues of the moment without barriers and without fear. Dom Theodore, a radio industry veteran and consultant for The Glenn Beck Program as well as several stations across the country through his consulting firm RadioAnimal, LLC, will serve as PD for the network.
Joel Cheatwood, President and Chief Content Officer at TheBlaze said: “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 The Blaze Network.”
Glenn’s radio co-hosts, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere are expanding their renamed show (now called Pat and Stu) from one hour to two, and will be heard for free for the first time, exclusively on TheBlaze Radio Network. The duo previously hosted The 4th Hour.
TheBlaze Radio Network’s launch line-up is:
• 9am-Noon: The Glenn Beck Program
• Noon-2: Pat and Stu
• 2-5: Jay Severin
• 5-6: Glenn Beck TV (simulcast of Glenn’s TV show)
• 6-7: Real News from the Blaze (simulcast of TV)
In addition, TheBlaze will continue to provide news updates each morning on Glenn’s radio show.
