We calculate the delay time and noise spectrum of a squeezed state throughout an electromagnetically induced transparency medium with dynamic Stark splitting. It is shown that the noise spectrum splits into two parts with the same delay time, so that the delayed squeezing can survive well in two channels. Furthermore, we show that the two squeezing channels as well as the delay time can be manipulated via one-photon detuning and detection frequency such that the quantum state with high delay time and squeezing can be well preserved. This avoids the influence of large noise from laser near zero detection frequency.
