According to Reuters, the new channel is the latest effort by Beck, a former Fox News talk show host, to expand his media company which has its roots on the Internet. The channel, dubbed "theBlaze Radio Network", will be available to Sirius XM's nearly 24 million subscribers.
Beck's radio show "The Glenn Beck program" has been available on Sirius XM since May 2010 but this is the first time Beck's media company will have its own dedicated channel on Sirius XM.
Beck, 49, is known for his conservative leanings and making inflammatory remarks. He has a strong following on radio and signed a $100 million radio deal with Premiere Networks last June.
