SiriusXM Radio announces that it will now be the exclusive radio home to veteran Talk radio host Michael Smerconish, who is a nationally syndicated radio host, MSNBC contributor, bestselling author and Philadelphia Inquirer columnist.

On April 15, The Michael Smerconish Program will end on terrestrial radio, including Smerconish's longtime home of WPHT-AM/Philadelphia, and air on SiriusXM "in an expanded format that builds on Smerconish’s spirited discussions of government, politics, and current events without predictable left/right bias." Smerconish is currently heard on over 80 affiliates nationwide.

"I am ecstatic to join SiriusXM, which I see as the dynamic future of radio broadcasting,” said Smerconish. “I look forward to talking with SiriusXM’s diverse, national audience, delivering a program that transcends the polarization that exists not only in Washington but in the media and country at large. It’s time to take the national conversation to a higher plane, and I invite listeners nationwide with views that don’t stack up neatly in any ideological box the way we’re told they should to join."

"Michael Smerconish is one of the most compelling, entertaining and powerful voices in talk radio who places personal conviction over political agenda and we welcome him to satellite radio," said Scott Greenstein, President/Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. "Now, on SiriusXM, we can’t wait to see what he does with the freedom of our unrestricted, uncensored, truly national platform and our engaged audience. We welcome his many current fans and look forward to new fans discovering Michael on SiriusXM."

The new show will air weekdays from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm ET exclusively on SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S. channel 124, SiriusXM’s non-partisan channel dedicated to the "Politics of the United States." The Michael Smerconish Program will replay during evening drive from 6:00 – 9:00 pm ET, and will be available on SiriusXM On Demand for subscribers listening via the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for smartphones and other mobile devices or online at siriusxm.com.
