Fox News Radio is an American radio network owned by Fox News. It is syndicated to more than a hundred AM and FM radio stations across the U.S. It also supplies programming for two channels on Sirius XM Satellite Radio.

n 2003, Fox News began syndicating one-minute radio updates to radio stations via syndication service Westwood One. With the success of the one-minute updates, Fox opted to make a full foray into network radio news services and began hiring a staff of 60 radio professionals.

On June 1, 2005, Fox News Radio began providing hourly five-minute newscasts at the beginning of each hour and a one-minute newscast at the half-hour mark. At its launch, 60 stations were signed up for the network. Many more joined under a deal struck between Fox and Clear Channel Communications (now iHeartMedia), the largest owner of radio stations in America. This allowed many Clear Channel stations to carry Fox News Radio newscasts and allowed Fox News Radio to use and nationally distribute news content produced by Clear Channel. Several of those stations ended decades-long relationships dating back to the Golden Age of Radio with CBS Radio News and ABC News Radio to carry Fox News Radio.

Fox also produces Fox News Talk, a long-form network with conservative talk programs featuring Fox News personalities. The programs are broadcast on terrestrial radio stations in the U.S. as well as a dedicated channel on SiriusXM Satellite Radio’s digital platform on Channel 450. Channel 450 also carries the five minute Fox newscast at the start of each hour and the one minute Fox news update at 30 minutes after each hour.

In late 2015, Fox News Radio began offering Fox News Headlines 24/7 exclusively to SiriusXM subscribers on Channel 115. It’s a live-anchored all news channel with a dedicated editorial staff, providing a panorama of the day’s news “from Hollywood to Wall Street to Main Street.”  News is presented in fifteen-minute blocks. Six anchors each day are assigned to eight-hour air shifts, with one hour on and one hour off over the course of the shift. Additional features include sports at :05/:35, business at :12/:42 and entertainment news at :28/:58. The station does not suspend its format for breaking news coverage, which is the role of Fox News Channel. The slogans are “The news you want, the moment you want it” and “It’s news, ready when you are.” It is a companion channel to the audio simulcasts of the Fox News Channel on SiriusXM 114 and Fox Business on SiriusXM 113.

Fox News Radio syndicates the following weekday talk radio programs:

  • The Brian Kilmeade Show (Heard live from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. E.T.)
  • Fox News Across America with various hosts (12 p.m. to 3 p.m. E.T.)
  • The Guy Benson Show (3 p.m. to 6 p.m. E.T.)

In June 2017, Fox News Radio re-organized its talk show line up. After over a decade as “Kilmeade and Friends,” the 9 a.m. show was re-branded as “The Brian Kilmeade Show.” The noon show, which had been hosted by John Gibson, was turned over to Todd Starnes. Gibson continues his show in syndication via Genesis Communications Network. The 3 p.m. show, which had been hosted by Tom Sullivan, was turned over to Tom Shillue. Sullivan continues on his flagship Sacramento radio stations KFBK and KFBK-FM, and affiliates via syndication by Talk Media Network.

Alan Colmes, who hosted the 6 p.m to 9 p.m. slot, died unexpectedly on February 23, 2017. On May 7, 2018, a new program ‘Benson & Harf’ debuted from 6 p.m to 8 p.m. It was discontinued in 2019. Todd Starnes had hosted the 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. shift and also provided weekday commentaries until October 2019. Starnes was fired by Fox News for remarks made during a Fox Nation discussion in which Starnes agreed with a guest that Democrats worship Moloch, an ancient demon god. In 2015, late afternoon host Guy Benson came out as gay in an announcement about his soon to be released book. Benson told an interviewer that “gay rights is not something that dominates my attentions—or my passions.” In September 2019, Benson married Adam Wise.

During prime time hours, the AM/FM syndicated version of Fox News Radio carries the audio from Fox News Channel’s commentary programs (The FiveTucker Carlson TonightHannity and The Ingraham Angle) on a delay. The SiriusXM version of the Fox News Talk offers these feeds live on Sirius XM channel 114, so the Sirius XM Channel 450 feed instead carries repeats of Fox News Talk’s daytime radio shows. Repeats of weekday shows also air over the weekend, along with several once-a-week talk shows, including “I’ll Tell You What” with Dana Perino and Chris Stirewalt, “Tyrus and Kat Timpf,” and “From Washington” with Jared Halpern.

Several other radio programs hosted by former Fox News Channel personalities were distributed by other companies. The Radio Factor hosted by Bill O’Reilly was produced by Fox News Radio but syndicated separately by Westwood One. When Fox News started producing O’Reilly’s radio show in 2002, it did not have the resources to syndicate and thus outsourced the distribution to Westwood One. Fox and Westwood One renewed the agreement in 2006 and again in 2007. O’Reilly decided to leave the show in February 2009.

A number of Fox News Channel hosts and commentators have talk radio programs not carried by Fox News Talk, or syndicated by them, such as Sean Hannity, Mark Levin and Ben Shapiro. Many of these programs were launched before the hosts had any affiliation with Fox News. For instance, the talk radio program hosted by FNC’s Sean Hannity is syndicated by Premiere Networks. Hannity’s show debuted before Fox News Radio had launched. It is heard on Channel 125, the Sirius XM Patriot channel. Levin and Shapiro have shows syndicated by Westwood One, with Levin also heard on Sirius XM Patriot Channel 125.
