(New York, NY September 5th) TheBlaze, Glenn Beck’s news, information, entertainment, and e-commerce network announced today TheBlaze Radio Network, a brand-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, America’s third-highest rated radio show which Premiere syndicates to over 400 affiliates across the country, 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, Clear Channel’s free industry-leading digital radio service, TheBlaze.com and TheBlaze iPhone and iPad apps.
Jay Severin, hailed by NewsMax Magazine as one of America’s Top 25 Radio Hosts, has served as host of nationally syndicated and regional radio programs including New York and Boston, for which he has been nominated for the Marconi Award for Top National Radio Major Market Personality. Severin 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 Program Director of TheBlaze radio.
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.”
Severin said: “To really want to listen to someone, I insist they offer me a chance to Learn or Laugh, and ideally both. Every day on TheBlaze Radio Network, we will strive to give you both.”
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 now combines one of the world’s largest subscription streaming video networks, a website that generates over 9 million unique visitors per month, a radio network, a curated marketplace platform to help local small businesses reach consumers across the country and a monthly magazine.
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.
