SiriusXM program Rotten Tomatoes Radio just keeps on rolling.
Launched June 7 as a weekly Thursday live call-in show, it was expanded to two nights a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays) just three months later with an eye towards also covering each week’s DVD and VOD releases. Now comes word that the one-hour program will be going daily for the first weekend of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. From today’s announcement:
Rotten Tomatoes Radio will air from the Miami Lounge on Main Street in Park City on Thursday, January 17 at 6:00 pm, Friday, January 18 at 7:00 pm, Saturday, January 19 at 4:00 pm and Sunday, January 20 at 4:00 pm (all times ET) on SiriusXM Stars Too channel 104. Senior editor Grae Drake and Rotten Tomatoes’ international editor Luke Goodsell (live from Park City) together with editor-inc-chief Matt Atchity (live from Rotten Tomatoes LA headquarters) will report on all the latest news, buzz and deals and interview notable guests.
Last year’s big Sundance hit, Beasts of the Southern Wild, wound up with a critics’ 86% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Not quite as high as the first wave of Park City buzz, but very respectable nonetheless.
