FOX News Radio and Clear Channel have signed an extension that keeps the syndicated radio news network providing news for some 100 CC stations for the next five years. FOX’s full-service, general-interest news offering features FOX News’ top talent and includes a five-minute top-of-the-hour newscast, a nightly signature news broadcast, and 24/7 dedicated national news coverage. Also under the agreement, FOX News Radio will continue to have access to news produced by Clear Channel’s more than 500 local news journalists via the company’s Clear Channel News Network.
Clear Channel Radio president John Hogan said, “As we approach the fifth anniversary of FOX News’ launch on 100 of our stations, it’s clear this is one of the most successful branding relationships in all of media. We continue to expand this relationship with our news/talk stations because the quality of the Fox News product continues to be outstanding.”
Kevin Magee, Executive Vice President of FOX News Radio, added, “Our original relationship helped propel FOX News to be a preeminent player in the radio industry. We look forward to continuing this highly successful affiliation with Clear Channel Radio.”
