Deal struck! Sirius XM to carry new Glenn Beck channel, TheBlaze Radio Network

Tease! But, no more guessing required now. The wonderful news is out:

More from The Blaze:

Beginning Monday, March 25, hourly updates from TheBlaze Radio News will mark the opening of every programming hour on SiriusXM Patriot channel 125, according an official press release.

Also beginning Monday, SiriusXM Internet Radio channel 778 will become TheBlaze Radio Network, featuring the same exclusive talk radio programs available on TheBlaze website. Hosts include Jay Severin, Doc Thompson, Buck Sexton, and of course, “The Glenn Beck Program” and the Pat & Stu show.

“TheBlaze is successfully becoming a true multi-platform news, information and opinion network,” said Beck of the new venture with SiriusXM.

Excellent. Hardest hit?


Indeed. We join in rubbing our hands together, gleefully, and wishing Beck and team much success!

An exit question for The Blaze crew:

Heh. Enterprising! It’s the American way.

    Sirius can suck a fat one. They dropped Fox News Talk which really screwed up some great shows that I listen to. They’ll never get another dime from me.

  • Sam

    What?! I thought for sure they’d give it to Al Gore’s insanely popular Current TV/Al Jazeera! What will I do without the brilliance of Joy Behar?

  • The Monster

    I remember when Beck announced he’d be leaving Fox, and said “the Left will one day wish for the days when I was doing this Fox show.” By leaving Fox to create his own network, he’s even more powerful.

    • Jillane Kent

      I enjoy his show more than ever now that he is not artificially constained. The talent he has hired, from Wilcow to the regulars of The Real News show, rival anything I’ve seen on Fox.

      • Vennoye

        I added his channel on Dish as soon as he launched it, and have never regretted it!! I rarely watch Fox any more because it appears that all you see is people yelling at each other and talking over each other–quit watching before the election and have not missed them. Get news from Beck and internet where there are no people screaming at each other.

    • Scott Anderson

      I want the blaze on Comcast. I’ve demanded it several times.

      Honestly I want to ditch comcast, but my wife would have kittens

      • Zanshi

        Comcast has taken a turn so far to the left, they’ve lost all sanity.

  • Scott Carroll

    The man has become a brand. Kudos to true American entrepreneurial spirit. On a related note, anyone else find the conservative circular firing squad that sometimes encircles Beck to be a highly unproductive? Hannity and Levin make no bones about the fact that they hate him.

    Come on guys, it’s like working at any office space in America. There are going to be people you like and people you don’t like but you’re all working toward the same goal. There’s no ‘I’ in Freedom.

  • V the K

    Congratulations, Mr. Beck. May you continue to send the left into paroxysms of loathing and deranged hatred (as they simultaneously proclaim your irrelevance) for many years to come.

  • BigTBoom

    Unfortunately 778 is internet only… Why couldn’t SiriusXM put it on ch 127 (Left) and bring back 126 (Fox News Talk) while they’re at it.

    • pajamakat

      Why did they take Fox News Talk off anyway. I never heard the reason why. Does anyone know why and how we can get it back? Does anyone really listen to the lfet station on there ? I make I skip past it very quickly. I don’t need an earache.

      • GaryTheBrave

        It was a money thing. Either SiriusXM had to pay money to Fox to carry the radio network or Fox had to pay SiriusXM to carry it. The new owners of SiriusXM didn’t see value and, considering most of the ad time was occupied by PSA’s, they didn’t see a positive revenue stream.

        I miss Fox News Talk. I would spend six hours listening to Kilmeade and Friends, and The John Gibson Show. I wonder if Chrissy had her baby?

        I’ve called XM but get nowhere. They are not responsive to listeners’ desires. After the MLB season I may drop them as well.

  • Love of Country

    Props, Glenn, this is great news! I had stopped following you when you left Fox but now that you’re on Sirius I can listen to you in the car. What’s next, your own network TV station? Move over, Oprah, lol …. or just sell to Glenn!

    You can do it Glenn …. you’ve beaten the odds your entire life. BTW – How’s your eye sight? I know you and your family were very worried you might be going blind about the time you left Fox …. hope all is well and congratulations!

    • CherDash

      He has his own TV network, but it’s only on Dish.

      • Cindy Nowicki

        You can also watch his network on television, ( through the internet) with a Roku box and subscription to The Blaze TV for $99 per yr, or $9.99 per month.

  • John Kerry’s Forehead

    I don’t know why ppl freaking out. If they don’t like Beck, don’t go to his channel. Congrats to Beck!!

  • TomJB

    “Beginning Monday, March 25, hourly updates from TheBlaze Radio News will
    mark the opening of every programming hour on SiriusXM Patriot channel
    125, according an official press release.”

    Thank. God. That the AP provides Patriot’s top-of-the-hour newsbriefs has never made any sense.

  • Rulz

    Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh should get honorary doctorates for their contributions to media.

  • Sara Nichols

    I have been demanding The Blaze on Comcast as well. Comcast will be big d**ks if they don’t carry the blaze TV.

  • GaryTheBrave

    Glenn has his radio show on two XM channels simultaneously. They need to kick him off one (Talk Radio 167) and put on Laura Ingraham.

  • bob

    I like Glenn Beck, I just wish he was not so preachy. More about politics, less religion please.

  • ItsThatBriGuy

    It’s nice to have this as an option on Sirius XM, but let’s be honest: this isn’t a premium feed. It’s the same one that iHeart has provided for free for a long time now. As a subscriber, I’d be cheering for an audio version of the Blaze TV channel, not this.

  • Bob Nelson

    This means on the SiriusXM internet network, but for those who have, say, XM in their car (like me) I don’t think it applies (except newscasts on 125/Patriot)
