Conservative Media Companies Merge to Form Independent Powerhouse

By Caleb Shumate

It is no secret that both The Blaze and CRTV are two of the biggest names in conservative independent media and it appears that the two networks are about to get even stronger. Both television networks have decided to merge under one banner to become Blaze Media. The two companies estimate that as a result of the merger they will be able to reach 165 million people via television, social media, and digital platforms. Glenn Beck told the Hollywood Reporter who first broke the story of the merge that quote, “ This is the beginning of scale,” he says. “Anyone who loves the Bill of Rights and pursues honesty, I want them all in. We’re an open book. Let’s talk.” Glenn founded The Blaze TV (originally GBTV) in 2011, shortly after his departure from Fox Newsand grew rapidly in spite of frequent attacks by Progressive groups that discouraged advertisers. The Blaze TV can be viewed on Dish Network, Verizon Fios, RokuSlingTV and several regional cable outlets, and can be heard on Sirius XM RadioiHeartRadio and elsewhere. It has also been reported that The Blaze will launch a live tour next year with the working title “ Blaze Live.”

The talent joining the hosts at The Blaze include Mark Levin, ( a former attorney in Ronald Regan’s administration and nationally syndicated radio host and founder of CRTV.) , Michelle MalkinSteven CrowderMatt KibbeDeneen BorelliPhil Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame and Gavin McInnes, the co-founder of Vice Media who hosts a show called, Get Off My Lawn, at CRTV.

The new company will be run by Tyler Cardon and Gaston Mooney, who were named co-presidents of the newly merged company. Mooney had been the previous president of CRTV and Cardon was the previous president at The Blaze. Levin had no management authority at CRTV and according to insiders will have none at Blaze Media.

“Tens of millions of Americans have had it with the biased, ideologically driven mainstream media outlets that sanctimoniously advance their own agendas under the guise of ‘news’ and ‘journalism.’ Conservatives actually believe in a free press and the rest of the Constitution,” said Levin.

He added that his intention with the merger is “to further expand and offer the public an alternative to liberal media group-think.”

Blaze Media will be a competitor to other conservative media outlets such as Breitbart News, The Daily Caller, Salem Media Group, and The Daily Wire which is founded and owned by conservative firebrand Ben Shapiro. The Blaze and The Daily Wire had spoken of a merger between the two companies but fell through.

Beck who is a good friend of Shapiro’s still seems hopeful of the possibility of a merger with The Daily Wire and said quote, “I’d still like to do that,” Beck said. “I’m a big fan of what Ben has built.” It has been reported by other media outlets that Blaze Media will continue to be headquartered in Dallas Texas, but it should be noted that Levin tweeted early Monday morning that quote “The decision for the merger was made by the principals of CRTV and TheBlaze. Also, the headquarters will not be in Dallas, TX.” So with that in mind, it seems to be unclear if the headquarters will remain in Dallas.

Many media outlets had previously suggested that Beck’s decision to cut back 20% of the company’s previous staff and the departure of both Tomi Lahren(after a very public disagreement over her pro-choice views) and NRA’s Spokeswoman Dana Loesch were indicators that his company was failing. Beck says the incident with Lahren was misreported and taken out of context. “We’re a different kind of media company, without a centralized command and control,” he says. “There’s no network you have to confer with. Talent is free to express their opinions, whether I agree with them or not.”

Financial terms of the merger were not disclosed, but Beck acknowledged his company had suffered a bit in the past but had been pretty profitable over the last year. “We worked hard to make sure we’re in the black. If we had spoken to CRTV a couple of years ago, it would have been a different story,” he says. “We talked about a merger when neither of us need it. That’s the best time.” Beck also said that he had planned on going into movie production about four years ago, but hadn’t been able to do so until now. “The merger will help those efforts,” he said. “First and foremost, I’m an artist and a storyteller.”
