After his firing by the CBC for allegedly secretly taking brokerage fees for connecting art buyers and sellers, including people with whom he dealt as a host, without disclosure (NET NEWS 6/9), former CBC RADIO 1 "THE HOUSE" and CBC NEWS NETWORK television "POWER AND POLITICS" host EVAN SOLOMON has landed at SIRIUSXM CANADA to host "EVERYTHING IS POLITICAL: CAMPAIGN 2015 WITH EVAN SOLOMON," a talk show leading up to the national election, premiering TOMORROW (8/6) 6-7p (ET) on CANADA TALKS.
The show will launch as a weekly show through AUGUST (plus a post-debate show FRIDAY after the party leaders' debate) and will go daily in SEPTEMBER through NOVEMBER 5th.
"We are excited to be teaming up with one of CANADA's most experienced political journalists," said SVP, Programming and Operations JOHN LEWIS. "SIRIUSXM'S EVERYTHING IS POLITICAL will be the political talk destination, offering listeners the highs and lows with passion, personality, and the news that make up a campaign."
"I am pleased to be part of SIRIUSXM CANADA for this historic election campaign," said SOLOMON. "With the help of a talented pool of OTTAWA-based journalists, we will bring a unique perspective to the campaign and aim to become a required everyday source of essential national campaign material for our listeners."
