April 28, 2015 at 1:10 PM (PT)
SIRIUSXM will launch "Let's Talk with ABBY and ARI," a live, one-hour weekly, call-in show hosted by MSNBC THE CYCLE's ABBY HUNTSMAN and ARI MELBER.
The show launches this THURSDAY, APRIL 30th at 6p (ET) on SIRIUSXM INSIGHT channel 121, the news, information, and entertainment radio channel offering "conversation with an edge." The pair will examine the news of the day first, and welcome tastemakers and newsmakers for interviews in a relaxed, casual style at the cross-section of current events, politics and entertainment.
HUNTSMAN was named one of FORBES 30 Under 30 for media in 2013 and is the daughter of former presidential candidate and businessman JON HUNTSMAN, who also hosts the "No Labels Radio" show on SIRIUSXM. MELBER was appointed MSNBC's Chief Legal Correspondent this month, and covers legal and political issues across all MSNBC platforms. The two co-host "THE CYCLE," airing at 3p (ET) on MSNBC, along with MSNBC co-hosts KRYSTAL BALL and TOURE.
"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to launch 'Let's Talk' on SIRIUSXM and, alongside SIRIUSXM listeners, go on an exploratory journey of the topics that matter most to our generation," said HUNTSMAN.
"They had me at 'talk,'" added MELBER. "This format enables us to take the political and cultural conversations from our newsroom and expand on them -- not only with enlightening guests but also by directly engaging our audience."
"ABBY and ARI will offer a fresh, new perspective on a broad range of today's topics to the delight of listeners nationwide," said SIRIUSXM President/Chief Content Officer SCOTT GREENSTEIN. "We are thrilled to offer the smart, stimulating conversation that they will create together for the millennial generation of SIRIUSXM listeners and beyond."
The show, which will regularly invite listeners to call in and join the conversation, will break down the important events of the week with a special focus on the issues facing younger AMERICANS. Guests will range from musical artists to authors to politicians. Listeners will be able to join the conversation by calling 1-877-9 SIRIUS or submitting their thoughts and questions using #SXMInsight and @SXMInsight.
"Let's Talk with ABBY and ARI" will also be available on SIRIUSXM On Demand for subscribers listening via the SIRIUSXM app and online at siriusxm.com.
