Yahoo News and SiriusXM announced the launch of “Yahoo News on POTUS” with Olivier Knox this morning. The live, weekly radio show will begin Wednesday, December 3rd at 2:00 PM ET on SiriusXM POTUS (channel 124) and will feature Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senator Cory Gardner as its first scheduled guests.
Hosted by Yahoo News’ Chief White House correspondent, Olivier Knox, the show will feature live interviews with national leaders in politics and public life as well as special guests discussing current events and more.
“Yahoo News on POTUS,” the 24/7 non-partisan channel dedicated to the Politics of the United States, is the first national radio platform for Yahoo News. Each show will feature a newsmaker of the week, and a roundtable led by Knox with an alternating panel of Yahoo News’ political contributors including Matt Bai, Michael Isikoff, Meredith Shiner, Liz Goodwin and Jon Ward.
“Our show will have news making guests, insightful takes from our team of reporters and outside journalists, and maybe a few oddballs here and there,” said Olivier Knox, “I’m thrilled (and a little frightened) to take on this amazing opportunity!”
“‘Yahoo News on POTUS’ brings the authoritative Yahoo News brand to radio for the very first time,” said Dave Gorab, Vice President and General Manager, Talk Programming, SiriusXM. “SiriusXM listeners coast to coast will now be able to listen to the sharp insight and analysis of the Yahoo News political team while driving in their cars.”
“‘Yahoo News on POTUS’ is a great opportunity to collaborate with SiriusXM while showcasing the amazing work our team produces on a daily basis,” said Megan Liberman, Editor in Chief, Yahoo News.
