TheBlaze and CRTV Merge to Create Conservative Media Powerhouse (Exclusive)
The Hollywood Reporter ^ | 8:00 PM PST 12/2/2018 b | Paul Bond

The homes of Glenn Beck and Mark Levin are combining to create Blaze Media, which insiders say will reach 165 million people via television, digital platforms and social media.

Glenn Beck and Mark Levin are teaming up by merging TheBlaze and CRTV to create a conservative-media entity dubbed Blaze Media, which they say will reach 165 million people via television, digital platforms and social media.

Beck and Levin are set to officially announce what they are calling a merger of equals on Monday, but Beck tells The Hollywood Reporter that the move could be just a next step at building a powerhouse, independent media company.

“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,” he says.

“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.”

I considered a CRTV subscription for a time and am now glad I didn’t as I won’t have anything to do with Beck the Nutburger.

I’m willing to give Beck a 2nd chance. Unfortunately he already used it up.

Dear Barrister Mark Levin:

PAY MARK STEYN THE LEGAL JUDGEMENT YOU OWE HIM!

Nobody likes a deadbeat...

I hope the folks at the Blaze considered the 4 million dollar judgement owed to Mark Steyn.

No idea why Mark Levin would tie his success to that complete loon, Glen Beck.

Glad I never subscribed to CRTV now. Beck will never get one thin dime from me.

Let me educate you:

Mark Levin and Glenn Beck did not merge. CRTV and TheBlaze merged. Mr. Levin does not hold management authority in CRTV... The decision for the merger was made by the principals of CRTV and TheBlaze.

Sounds like a great thing to subscribe to thru ROKU.
Did you watch Mark Levin and Heather Mac Donald on tonight's "Life, Liberty, and Levin" ?
If not catch it on YouTube.Com: Heather Mac Donald talked about today's educational problems and her book The Diversity Delusion: How Race and Gender Pandering Corrupt the University and Undermine Our Culture.
It's well worth watch again.
You should read Robert VerBruggen's article reviewing her book in the article Misdirected Hysteria/
Here's an excerpt of that review:

Yep—to give this news any respect the Beck-associated Blaze name would have had to gone, with management from the other side.

I really don’t understand why someone else—even OANN—hasn’t picked up Mark’s variety show, which would class up any television network.

And I do understand that Steyn’s probably a prickly personality to manage.
