September 23, 2016 at 11:27 AM (PT)
Legendary news anchor DAN RATHER will join SIRIUSXM's RADIO ANDY Radio Andy channel 102, with his weekly program "DAN RATHER's AMERICA" debuting TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27th at 10a (ET). The one-hour show will broadcast from SIRIUSXM's NEW YORK headquarters in ROCKEFELLER CENTER.
Hot off his limited-run show in JULY reporting for RADIO ANDY at the REPUBLICAN and DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTIONS, RATHER will return to SIRIUSXM for the exclusive new weekly show, which premieres the morning after the first presidential debate, and will feature the news icon's fresh commentary and analysis of one of the most anticipated political events in recent U.S. history. On his weekly program, RATHER will also talk with a regular rotation of top newsmakers about the political landscape and the big news stories of the day, and will also invite listeners to call in and voice their opinions.
Commented ANDY COHEN: "I'm pinching myself that DAB has agreed to lend his iconic voice to my channel. Now more than ever, I'm hungry to hear his thoughts and reflections about what's going on in the world."
Created by BRAVO's COHEN, the RADIO ANDY channel includes shows that cross the spectrum from news to pop culture, with a stable of hosts including SANDRA BERNGHARD, JOHN BENJAMIN HICKEY, JASON BIGGS and JENNY MOLLEN and JONATHAN ALTER, among others.
Subscribers will also be able to listen to the show via SIRIUSXM On Demand, through the SIRIUSXM app on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at www.siriusxm.com/player.
