Fox News and SiriusXM have announced that Fox News Headlines 24/7 will debut on Monday, Oct. 5. The all-new satellite radio channel will broadcast from the FNC headquarters in New York and aims to offer real-time updates on everything from breaking news to social media trends.
“Our goal is to continuously deliver original breaking news product to our viewers. This up-to-the-minute national breaking news channel, combined with SiriusXM’s reach, is a natural partnership and extension for the FOX News brand,” Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said.
Fox News svp Jay Wallace will oversee the new station that kicks off with the voice of Bill Hemmer on Monday at 6 a.m. ET. Shepard Smith will also host for an hour at 6 p.m. ET with additional FNC personalities replacing Hemmer and Smith after the initial launch of the channel.
“Fox News Headlines 24/7 is unlike any national news experience you’ll find on radio. The news never stops, and now SiriusXM listeners can have the very latest information at their fingertips – everything from Hollywood to Wall Street to Main Street – refreshed every 15 minutes, 24/7, 365 days a year. We’re thrilled to collaborate with Fox News to deliver this unique experience to SiriusXM subscribers around the country,” SiriusXM president and COO Scott Greenstein said.
Fox News Headlines 24/7 will be the fourth FNC station on SiriusXM, joining Fox News Channel, Fox Business and Fox News Talk.
