SiriusXM announced the first initiative in delivering its unparalleled talk programming to Pandora’s broad audience. Starting now, content from select SiriusXM shows extending across entertainment, talk, comedy, music, and sports, will be available to all Pandora listeners as podcasts.
At launch, this content will reach more than 100 million audio listeners and subscribers of Pandora and SiriusXM. Located within the new Podcasts on Pandora offering, users will be able to enjoy content from some of SiriusXM’s most popular entertainment shows, including “Andy Cohen’s Deep & Shallow Interviews,” featuring Cohen’s best conversations of the week; “Jenny McCarthy’s Celebrity Dirt,” sharing highlights of McCarthy dishing about the latest Hollywood scandals; “The Jason Ellis Show,” playing top moments of the week; and “The Hoda Show,” a full, commercial-free podcast of Hoda Kotb’s SiriusXM program, and much more. Podcasts on Pandora leverages unrivaled listener-personalization technology to serve up podcast recommendations that are unique to each user’s tastes.
For those seeking motivation, the “Joel Osteen” podcast will be available on Pandora. Pastor of America’s largest church, Osteen, who also has his own SiriusXM channel, will deliver his moving Lakewood messages in full each week.
Comedy fans will be able to hear from some of the world’s most beloved comics. “Straight from The Hart with Kevin Hart,” “Ricky Gervais Is Deadly Sirius,” and “Larry the Cable Guy Weekly Roundup” will be available on Pandora as commercial-free podcasts each week, while “A Comic Mind Hosted by Jeff Foxworthy” will be monthly. Program highlights from “Jim Norton & Sam Roberts” will also be available weekly.
For compelling talk shows about music and artists, users can catch the best moments of the week from “Trunk Nation” with Eddie Trunk, “Debatable” with Mark Goodman and Alan Light, and “Feedback” with Nik Carter and Lori Majewski; as well as the top long-form segments of “Sway in the Morning.”
Among the nearly two dozen new podcasts on Pandora will be highlights from some of SiriusXM’s top sports programs, including “Mad Dog Unleashed,” featuring Christopher ‘Mad Dog’ Russo’s daily opening rant and top segment of the day; “Schein on Sports,” another daily podcast offering Adam Schein’s opening monologue; and “Busted Open,” a daily “best of” podcast for pro wrestling fans.
“We’re excited that some of our most popular talk shows are now being made available to Pandora users,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer. “This will be a great opportunity for new audiences to discover these SiriusXM shows, while providing Pandora with great programming, as we continue to collaborate on content opportunities for both platforms.”
