ALL ACCESS has learned that GLENN BECK's THEBLAZE RADIO NETWORK will discontinue its news service at the end of AUGUST. The network, which has been supplying broadcast stations and SIRIUSXM RADIO with news reports, will end that service, resulting in some anchor/reporters exiting the company, but Talk programming, including the shows hosted by JAY SEVERIN, DOC THOMPSON and SKIP LACOMBE, PAT GRAY and STEVE "STU" BURGUIERE, BUCK SEXTON, ANDREW W.K., MATT WALSH, Sheriff DAVID CLARKE, and others, will continue as usual.
A statement from VP/Programming DOM THEODORE said, "THEBLAZE RADIO NETWORK will provide its news service to broadcast and satellite radio partners through the end of AUGUST. Starting in SEPTEMBER, the network will no longer produce and distribute its news service but will continue to be more focused than ever on long form opinion and entertainment programming distributed through THEBLAZE RADIO NETWORK, a Top-20 streaming service. In the past 12 months, the network has added new shows and podcasts from ANDREW W.K, Sheriff DAVID CLARKE, MATT WALSH and others, with more to be announced in the near future."
