SIRIUSXM RADIO's P.O.T.U.S. political News-Talk channel is adding "POLITICS POWERED BY TWITTER," a weekday show looking at politics through the tweets of politicians, journalists, and celebrities and following trending topics. The show, hosted by HYPERVOCAL.COM co-founders LEE BRENNER and SLADE SOHMER, will air 6-7p (ET) with a replay at 9p.
"The 24-hour news cycle has transformed into a 140-character news cycle," said TWITTER CEO DICK COSTOLO. "During the election season, Twitter is a place where news breaks, candidates connect with constituents, and discussions flourish. POLITICS POWERED BY TWITTER on SIRIUSXM is a great way to dive deeper into real-time election news and continue the conversations that begin on Twitter."
