SiriusXM To Spotlight Republican Presidential Candidates
July 15, 2015 at 6:25 AM (PT)
SIRIUSXM host DAVID WEBB will attend the REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE SUMMER meeting in CLEVELAND, offering candidates for the nomination a platform to reflect on their candidacy and share personal anecdotes of interest to voters.
WEBB's interviews -- conducted in a five-question format -- will profile the candidates' life journeys, as well as their personal interests outside of politics. The interviews will air AUGUST 6th on PATRIOT, SIRIUSXM's conservative Talk channel (125), and the non-partisan POTUS channel (124).
"As we kick-off SIRIUSXM's coverage of the 2016 election in an extremely fast-paced and politically charged environment, the notion of slowing down for a moment and giving each candidate an opportunity to introduce him or herself in a personal manner is something we feel very strongly about," said SIRIUSXM VP/GM Talk Programming DAVE GORAB. "With each candidate profile, our desire is to break from policy soundbites and give our listeners the opportunity to better understand the person behind the candidacy."
