Entertainment Weekly radio is the latest way in which we’re expanding our brand to engage our fans wherever they are and whenever they want us.”
Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer of SiriusXM, added, "Subscribers will be able to have a daily conversation with Entertainment Weekly staff about the movies, TV and celebrities that fascinate them the most, and to discover their next favorites. The channel will be a gateway for subscribers to hear the inside scoop from the entertainment world. Entertainment Weekly Radio will quickly become a must-listen."
According to a press release posted by Yahoo! Finance, Dalton Ross, assistant managing editor, will host a daily morning show featuring TV recaps, Cagle will have a weekly show, and there will also be programs entitled “What’s Hot Today,” “The Must List,” and “Bullseye.”
