On the new show, KOTB will discuss some of her favorite “water cooler” topics, including the latest on her favorite TV shows, dating, health and beauty. KOTB will share personal anecdotes, take calls from SIRIUSXM listeners and speak with some of her favorite celebrity guests.
“I am so excited to peel off my SPANX, wipe the shellac we call makeup off my face, get in my fat pants, and … gab on my new SIRIUSXM show,” said KOTB. “Let’s let it all hang out!”
“We’re thrilled to welcome HODA KOTB, one of the most popular hosts on broadcast TV, to the SIRIUSXM team to lead this original and exclusive call-in radio show. This will be a refreshing and fun addition for listeners nationwide,” said SIRIUSXM Pres./Chief Content Officer SCOTT GREENSTEIN. "And we are again excited to work with the NBC UNIVERSAL NEWS GROUP, expanding our relationship further with one of the most respected brands in media."
KOTB is the co-host of the fourth hour of “TODAY,” alongside KATHIE LEE GIFFORD. KOTB has also been a “Dateline” correspondent since APRIL 1998 and covered a variety of domestic and international stories, as well as human-interest stories and features, across NBC NEWS platforms.
