(New York, NY July 17th) TheBlaze, an online TV network featuring news, information, and entertainment programs, today unveiled a new program for its primetime line-up – an hour long news, talk show hosted by SiriusXM National radio personality Andrew Wilkow who is frequently hailed as one of the true up and coming conservative voices. The show debuts later this summer and its name will be revealed at a later date. Wilkow will also continue to host SiriusXM’s The Wilkow Majority, which airs from 12:00 – 3:00 pm ET on SiriusXM Patriot.

The Hollywood Reporter wrote that Wilkow is one of talk radio’s “young guns…with the potential to be as big as a…Stern” and Mark Levin called Wilkow the “next generation of great talk radio.”

Andrew Wilkow joins TheBlaze’s growing line-up of original programming which already includes 3 hours of primetime shows like the comedy news show The B.S. of A, the reality show Independence USA and other programming throughout the day led by Glenn’s show, the news show Real News and the kid’s show Liberty TreeHouse. The network airs over 35 hours of original programming per week and will soon provide video content on a 24/7 basis.

Joel Cheatwood, President/Chief Content Officer of TheBlaze said: “TheBlaze is building a primetime line-up filled with both established talent and the voices of the future. Andrew Wilkow’s strong independence and ‘no sacred cows’ approach to the news, issues and events of the day are perfect fits for TheBlaze as we continue to expand our programming.”
Wilkow said: “Glenn Beck and the team at TheBlaze are creating an incredible new network from the ground up. I’m thrilled to bring my own voice into the mix, and I can’t wait to get started.”

In addition to his radio show, Wilkow has been a featured guest panelist on Real News on TheBlaze since its launch this past January. Andrew has also been a regular guest on CNN and the Fox News Channel.

    GLENN:
    When are you going to produce a show that portrays Obama in the WH-JUST LIKE HBO’s THE NEWSROOM”?

    It can be half documentary and HALF LIVE ACTING, or something similar.  I’d like to see actors and actresses that show what you think is/was happening since Obama took office.
    IF HBO CAN PUT ON A SHOW ABOUT DEMOCRATS, SO CAN YOU.  THE ONLY DIFFERENCE WOULD BE ‘THE TRUTH’ AND YOU ARE KNOWN FOR THE TRUTH.
    I am a retired Professional Writer and I would be available to help you in this endeavor free of charge.

    God bless you and your family.

    Who is the priest who delivered the address on evils of socialism?  He just aired part of the address 7/17/12.

    That is a great idea. The Blaze should produce its own version of The West Wing showing our version of what a the White House would look like with an absence of progressives – oh man that would be some good conservative porn — queue Barry White.

    Apparently, you were not much of a “professional writer.”  Please edit your writing a little better before posting.  Or just go back to school and get a real education.  Moron.

    Excuse me? You know absolutely NOTHING ABOUT ME, so that makes YOU the moron. When you ASSUME something about a person, that means you have the LOWEST FORM OF INTELLIGENCE. That is the meaning of ASSUMPTION.

    I was a PRO Writer for over 25 years and it is not easy typing thru an iPhone within 500 characters. So STOP with the insults, which shows a LOT about your character – AND THAT IS NO ASSUMPTION. You just proved it.
