SIRIUS XM RADIO has rebranded its liberal talk channel SIRIUS XM LEFT to SIRIUS XM PROGRESS, starting AUGUST 22nd.
The new name comes with an altered lineup, with a new show with MEDIA MATTERS FOR AMERICA's ARI RABIN-HAVT moving from evenings to 6-9a (ET) and SIRIUS XM OUTQ's MICHELANGELO SIGNORILE taking the 3-6p (ET) slot weekdays. MARK THOMPSON's show continues, as do the syndicated STEPHANIE MILLER, ED SCHULTZ and THOM HARTMANN shows.
“From sports to music to all perspectives of political talk, SIRIUSXM’s non-traditional, groundbreaking hosts live their lives in their fields as much as on the air. We are very pleased to launch SIRIUSXM PROGRESS with that spirit, expanding and enhancing the quality and depth of our diverse political lineup across multiple SIRIUSXM channels,” said SIRIUSXM SVP, Talk and Entertainment JEREMY COLEMAN. “Whether our audience agrees or disagrees, seeks out information or challenges what they hear, we now offer truly insider radio featuring progressive politics and perspective from veteran activists who have earned their stripes and are ready to take calls from listeners nationwide.”
