Chuck Todd To Host Show For SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S. Channel
November 21, 2013 at 11:00 AM (PT)
MSNBC "THE DAILY RUNDOWN" host CHUCK TODD will host a new weekly radio show on SIRIUSXM's P.O.T.U.S. channel, starting DECEMBER 7th. "UNSCRIPTED WITH CHUCK TODD" will air SATURDAY mornings 9-10a (ET).
TODD said, "In this day and age, people tend to think they have more access to newsmakers and politicians, when in many ways they actually have less. With this show on SIRIUSXM we'll aim to help listeners get to know these powerful people in a different way -- to know them as human beings, not as sound bite machines. Politics today is so much a part of our pop culture, and I look forward to talking to the many famous amateur political junkies out there who just happen to have day jobs in the worlds of sports, HOLLYWOOD, WALL STREET and everywhere in between."
SIRIUSXM VP/GM/Talk Programming DAVE GORAB added, "We welcome veteran journalist CHUCK TODD as he goes outside his normal field of reporting and delves into the personal passions and interests of not just politicians but leaders from virtually every field of interest. UNSCRIPTED WITH CHUCK TODD is new territory for him, but will be built on CHUCK's journalistic savvy and experience. It will be a weekly hour that takes newsmakers out of their predictable comfort range to reveal interests and viewpoints listeners haven't heard before."
