Entertainment Weekly to launch SiriusXM radio channel
Starting this spring, you can listen to EW! That’s right, we’re partnering with SiriusXM radio to launch a channel that will broadcast the best (and worst!) in entertainment 24/7. Entertainment Weekly Radio will feature original shows hosted by EW editors and contributors, covering breaking news, opinion, Hollywood scoop, TV recaps, and more.
“We are thrilled that we will be able to expose Entertainment Weekly’s trusted voice and sharp insight to SiriusXM’s passionate and devoted audience,” said Jess Cagle, EW’s managing editor. “Sirius XM’s line-up contains some of the best brands in the world and we are excited to be among them. Entertainment Weekly radio is the latest way in which we’re expanding our brand to engage our fans wherever they are and whenever they want us.”
First up is a daily morning radio show hosted by EW assistant managing editor Dalton Ross, which will include a forum for listeners to weigh in on recaps of last night’s TV shows as they drive to work. We’re also planning a weekly show hosted by Cagle, showcasing the most interesting in the world of entertainment; additional shows will include “Movie Talk Live”, “News & Notes”, “What to Watch on TV” and radio versions of “The Must List” and “Bullseye.”
We’ll be giving you an opportunity through these shows to interact with our editors and writers and give us your opinions on pop culture.
“Subscribers will be able to have a daily conversation with Entertainment Weekly staff about the movies, TV and celebrities that fascinate them the most, and to discover their next favorites,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. “The channel will be a gateway for subscribers to hear the inside scoop from the entertainment world. Entertainment Weekly Radio will quickly become a must-listen.”
Select programming from Entertainment Weekly Radio will be available on SiriusXM On Demand after it airs for subscribers listening via the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for smartphones and other mobile devices or online at siriusxm.com.
