TheBlaze, Glenn Beck’s multi-platform news, information, and opinion network, will produce 24/7 hourly radio newscasts on SiriusXM Patriot, SiriusXM’s conservative talk channel. It will also be added to the SiriusXM Internet Radio lineup.
Beginning 3/25, hourly updates from “TheBlaze Radio News” will begin every hour of programming on SiriusXM Patriot channel 125, with anchors and reporters from around the nation providing news and information specifically targeted toward the SiriusXM Patriot listener.
Also on 3/25, SiriusXM Internet Radio channel 778 becomes “TheBlaze Radio Network,” which recently launched online. “TheBlaze Radio Network” features exclusive talk programs from Jay Severin, Doc Thompson, and Buck Sexton, as well as The Glenn Beck Program and The Pat & Stu Show.
“TheBlaze is successfully becoming a true multi-platform news, information and opinion network,” said Glenn Beck. “We are excited to further our long relationship with SiriusXM with the launch of ‘TheBlaze Radio Network,’ and feel that SiriusXM Patriot is the perfect home for our news updates which will prove that the truth has no agenda.”
TheBlaze’s newsgathering operation is led by President and Chief Content Officer Joel Cheatwood, who’s held previous management roles for Fox News Channel, CNN, and CBS. Scott Baker, formerly a news anchor at ABC-affiliate WTAE Pittsburgh, is Editor-in-Chief. Glenn Hall, former Editor-in-Chief of TheStreet.com, is Managing Editor.
Beck’s Premiere-syndicated “The Glenn Beck program” has been available on Sirius XM since 5/10 but this is the first time Beck’s media company will have its own dedicated channel on Sirius XM.
Last week, Beck’s company said in a regulatory filing that the company was raising $40 million and that it was generating between $25 million and $100 million per year in revenue.
While it started as an Internet-only channel, Beck’s media network “TheBlaze” has been available on Dish Network since September.
