GBTV Launching Nightly News Program

Former Fox News host Glenn Beck‘s web-TV network GBTV is adding a nightly newscast… sort of. The network will launch “Real News From The Blaze” at 7 PM on January 18. The program will feature a number of Blaze staffers with cable news backgrounds, including Amy Holmes, S.E. Cupp, Scott Baker and Will Cain. The Blaze is Beck’s news and commentary website.

The program will not be a typical news program, but will pursue its own agenda, as the announcement explains:

Each and every day there’s a whole world of news and information that goes unreported, ignored by the mainstream media. Stories, issues, and events that impact the daily lives of Americans young and old ignored, purposely discarded, or “reported” without the benefit of the full perspective or context. News = Truth…and the truth has no agenda.  Real News from The Blaze will play no favorites. The good, the bad, and the downright ugly will be presented unvarnished and complete without a nod to the left or the right.  News and analysis from the worlds of politics, national security, the economy, foreign policy, and whatever else impacts our lives.  Virginia Leahy, who helped develop and launch three primetime shows on HLN, will serve as executive producer.
