The NEW YORK DAILY NEWS' RUSH AND MOLLOY report that XM SATELLITE RADIO's "OPRAH AND FRIENDS" channel is adding Rabbi SHMULEY BOTEACH to host a show beginning JANUARY 28th.
The hiring of the author and radio and TV personality for the show has raised complaints from an activist who objects that OPRAH WINFREY, a backer of BARACK OBAMA, would hire BOTEACH, a supporter of RUDY GIULIANI, as a host for the channel. A spokesman for WINFREY's production company called the complaint a "non--issue."
BOTEACH briefly hosted a show for BONNEVILLE Talk KUTR-A/SALT LAKE CITY.
