Fox News Radio

Fox News Radio is an American radio network programmed by Fox News Channel. Some of the cable news channel's most popular personalities' radio shows are syndicated or produced by Fox News Radio, including Bill O'Reilly and Alan Colmes.

History

In 2003, Fox News began syndicating one minute radio updates to radio stations via syndication service Westwood One. On June 1, 2005, "Fox News Radio" expanded to a full service news operation independent of Westwood One, employing sixty people and providing five minute newscasts at the top of the hour and a one minute newscast at the bottom of the hour. Fox News Radio is hosted by both FNC television personalities and others working solely for radio. At its launch, sixty stations participated in the network, with more joining under a deal struck between Fox and Clear Channel Communications converting many Clear Channel stations to carry Fox News Radio newscasts and allow Fox News Radio to use news content produced by Clear Channel and distribute it nationally.

Fox also produces Fox News Talk for both satellite radio services, with talk radio programs syndicated by and featuring Fox News personalities.

Programming

Fox News Radio also syndicates the following radio programs hosted by its TV personalities:

* "Brian and the Judge" with Judge Andrew Napolitano and Brian Kilmeade
* "The John Gibson Show"
* "The Alan Colmes Show"

Two other radio programs hosted by Fox News Channel personalities are distributed by other companies. "The Radio Factor" hosted by Bill O'Reilly is produced by Fox News Radio but syndicated separately by Westwood One. This is because when Fox News started producing O'Reilly's radio show in 2002, they did not have the resources to syndicate, and thus outsourced the distribution to Westwood One. Fox and Westwood One have since renewed the agreement, in 2006 and again in 2007. (Because "The Radio Factor" is produced by Fox, it is available on Fox News Talk, Fox's satellite radio channel. Westwood One does not sell their programs to satellite services.)

The talk radio program hosted by FNC's Sean Hannity is syndicated by ABC Radio (which began in 2001).

Aside from Hannity, the Fox News Channel radio hosts also appear on the Fox News Talk satellite radio channel, along with the satellite-only program "Fox Across America" hosted by Spencer Hughes. Hannity's program, "The Sean Hannity Show", appears on the America Right and Sirius Patriot satellite channels.

On November 12, 2007, Fox News Radio debuted a 3-6 PM (Eastern) show hosted Tom Sullivan, a long-time California radio talk show host who is an anchor on the company's Fox Business Network. Sullivan's show continues to air on its original home station, Sacramento's KFBK, and is also now being offered to other stations.

On the Fox News Talk satellite channel, the Sullivan show follows "Fox Across America" with Spencer Hughes, another former local talk show host for KFBK.
