SiriusXM has put together around-the-clock convention coverage featuring several “pop-up” radio shows from each host city. A new channel called “Convention Radio” will let both sides of the political aisle have a chance to maximize their time in the spotlight.
At the RNC in Tampa, Convention Radio will feature conservative voices such as Will Cain and S.E. Cupp from TheBlaze. In Charlotte, the DNC coverage will have shows hosted by Daily Kos contributors.
“We are proud to bring our subscribers this extensive and diverse collection of political coverage, particularly now when the conversation about the country’s direction for the next four years is front and center,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. “Our subscribers can choose between a variety of perspectives, call in to share their own views, and experience the RNC and DNC as if they were there.”
Those interested can tune in on the first day of the Republican Convention, Aug. 27, on Sirius channel 123 and XM channel 142 and on SiriusXM Patriot Plus online. SiriusXM Convention Radio will also air from the Democratic National Convention beginning Sept. 4 on Sirius channel 123 and XM channel 142 and on SiriusXM Left Plus online.
In addition to the special programming, SiriusXM’s P.O.T.U.S. channel will carry every speech from both conventions live. Hosts Tim Farley, Julie Mason and Pete Dominick will be on hand to broadcast live with guests and get immediate reaction to the events.
