The majority of Clear Channel's syndicated talk and music shows are done through its subsidiary, Premiere Radio Networks. Premiere is a dedicated syndication company that houses dozens of talents, with a marketing division that aggressively sells these shows to stations across the United States, and occasionally Canada. However, several Clear Channel radio shows are syndicated by their flagship stations and regional managers, without the aid of Premiere Radio.
Talk shows are often broadcast through Clear Channel Satellite Services, with the exception of a couple whose distribution rights belong to another company. Music programs, under the name "Premium Choice," are distributed through a company intranet service, and are pre-recorded. These programs are imported with playlists, and local stations insert IDs and spots accordingly. Voicetracked hosts, such as Ed McMann and Lori Bradley, are not included in this list, as they produce a separate show for each station served. Premium Choice jocks air the same content and playlist on each affiliate.
The following is a list of a shows produced by Clear Channel Communications that are syndicated to at least one other radio station, but are not part of the Premiere Radio Networks family.

Except for shows whose sales and distribution is handled by a third party, none of these shows have immense affiliate bases. In many cases, these shows were syndicated to other stations as a cost-cutting measure within the company. In others, the talent requested they be syndicated to a certain number of stations as a condition to work for, or continue working with, Clear Channel. It is rare that these shows get syndicated to large markets besides the one they're based out of, instead being syndicated to smaller market stations. Also, unlike Premiere and any shows listed otherwise, these shows do not carry required network advertisements, instead leaving all advertising open for the local stations to sell.
