SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO and NEW YORK UNIVERSITY's LANGONE MEDICAL CENTER have finally set the launch date for "DOCTOR RADIO," the new health channel on SIRIUS for MONDAY (6/2). The channel, broadcasting from the lobby of LANGONE MEDICAL CENTER, was announced in NOVEMBER.
"DOCTOR RADIO offers listeners a rare level of contact and communication with NEW YORK UNIVERSITY School of Medicine physicians and scientists," said NYU LANGONE MEDICAL CENTER SAUL J. FARBER Dean and CEO ROBERT I. GROSSMAN, M.D. "We are so pleased to partner with SIRIUS on DOCTOR RADIO. We will greatly expand the reach and impact of our academic medical center, and the medical information people have access to, as SIRIUS helps us connect daily to millions of diverse listeners across the country."
"DOCTOR RADIO is a revolutionary concept: leading-edge medicine paired with leading-edge media," said SIRIUS President, Sports and Entertainment SCOTT GREENSTEIN. "Top physicians are just a phone call away, able to deliver immediate and insightful medical information and knowledge relevant to our listeners, their families and friends who may never otherwise get this unique access to the highest echelon of doctors."
