TheBlaze was founded by conservative talk radio personality and entrepreneur Glenn Beck. TheBlaze is a multiplatform news and entertainment network available online, on television, and on radio. Initially launched as a website in August of 2010, Beck started TheBlaze as an alternative to mainstream media outlets he said were “distorting facts to fit rigid agendas.” The Dallas-based network includes platforms on radio, television and online, bound together by the values of truth, respect, ingenuity and family.
