    Glenn Beck's The Blaze and Mark Levin's CRTV merge into Blaze Media

    Yes you have two major right wing outlets in talks for a merger. Yes the ploy is to go after Fox News and Sinclair for RNC Audiences.

    Mark Levin's CRTV and Glenn Beck's The Blaze have merged to form a right-wing media and opinion giant that appears poised to compete directly with Fox News' just-launched streaming service.

    Beck announced the deal Monday after The Hollywood Reporter wrote about it Sunday.

    "So many people came up and said, 'You know, you guys just have to get together,'" Beck said on his radio program. "So we took that at heart, and we did that."

    Financial terms of the merger were not disclosed.

    The Blaze's website, started by Beck in 2010, claims that the newly formed Blaze Media will reach more than 165 million people every month, making it the "largest independent, traditionally conservative multiplatform media company" in the U.S.

    Levin, a popular radio host and the founder of LevinTV, which grew to become CRTV, will join the Blaze brand name, along with other hosts including Michelle Malkin, "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson, former Fox co-host Eric Bolling and others.

    The announcement comes less than a week after Fox launched its $5.99-a-month streaming opinion site, Fox Nation. That subscription service started with a slate of original content featuring some of the television network's regular contributors and hosts. A monthly pass to the BlazeTV service costs $10, according to its website.

    Of course Sinclair doesn't really have anything like this yet.

    True I knew Sinclair was talking about having a streaming outlet though similar to the Blaze and Fox Nation and it was going to compete against each other for RNC Audiences.

    Huh How does The Blaze reach 165 Million?

    The Blaze, which was founded by Glenn Beck in 2011, and CRTV, founded by Mark Levin in 2014, are combining to form Blaze Media.

    Beck and Levin say their new network will reach over 165 million people through TV and online platforms. Beck says Blaze Media will feature an “ideologically diverse” lineup including “conservatives, libertarians, constitutionalists, and more”.

    Remember what the word "reach" means. It means 165 million have the ability to receive it. Not that they actually watch it.
