SiriusXM Adds Seasonal Programs
SiriusXM is adding two new seasonal
programs to the satellite lineup.
From July 27–Aug. 12
SiriusXM will work with Olympic Games broadcasters Dial Global and NBC
Universal to provide coverage of the games in London. Content for “Summer Games
Radio” will include live reports, news and highlights. Hosts will include
former Olympians Summer Sanders (Gold Medal Swimming) and Christian Laettner
(Gold Medal Basketball).
Features are planned to
include play-by-play of U.S. men’s basketball games along with select medal
games for women’s basketball and soccer. “Summer Games Radio” will air on
Sirius Channel 93 and XM Channel 209.
On the political side, “Politics Powered by Twitter” is a
daily, hour-long program consisting of a digest of politically-significant
Twitter feeds. Starting July 30, hosts Lee Brenner and Slade Sohmer will sift
through the tweets of journalists, politicians, celebrities and others. Special
guests will also be interviewed.
Sirius is setting up a
special Twitter account for the show to encourage listener input and feedback.
The show airs 6–7 p.m. on Channel 124, P.O.T.U.S.
