Hosts to include Pete Dominick, Margaret Hoover, John Fugelsang, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Karen Hunter, Dean Obeidallah, Alan Dershowitz, Perri Peltz, Bob Roth, and many more

NEW YORK – January, 6, 2015 – SiriusXM today announced it will launch SiriusXM Insight, an all-new, exclusive, groundbreaking news, information, and entertainment radio channel offering listeners inspiring ideas and intelligent conversation with an edge.  Designed to reach fans that enjoy the eclectic subject matter of public radio, SiriusXM Insight will feature an array of fresh, diverse voices addressing a new era of issues in a lively, smart, and sometimes humorous approach.  


At launch, SiriusXM Insight will feature shows with notable brands including the Aspen Institute, The Daily Beast, and TechCrunch, giving listeners the opportunity to react and learn about a range of critical issues spanning headline news and social trends, technology news, the arts and culture, science, parenting, spirituality, travel, literature, education and more. 


The channel will also include a variety of talented, insightful hosts from wide-ranging backgrounds, including three stand-up comedians well-known for their astute analysis of news and issues: SiriusXM on-air personality and stand-up comic, Pete Dominick; political commentator and comedian, John Fugelsang; and former practicing attorney and Muslim American stand-up comedian, Dean Obeidallah.  Also joining the lineup are well-known experts Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist, Director of the Hayden Planetarium, and popularizer of science; author, Libertarian, activist and Harvard Law professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz; Pulitzer Prize-winning African-American journalist, professor, and publisher, Karen Hunter; center-right political commentator and gay rights activist, Margaret Hoover; and transcendental meditation expert and Executive Director of the David Lynch Foundation, Bob Roth.


“SiriusXM Insight is like the cocktail party after the seminar - the topics are lively and the discussion is loose, engaging and unpredictable,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. “Insight is a fresh alternative to public interest radio, giving listeners a new kind of intelligent discourse jam-packed with exciting programs and intelligent topics that affect all of our lives.  Not over-scripted, over-produced or over-rehearsed, the lineup of shows, and the additional content we will continue to add, will make SiriusXM Insight the go-to destination for people of all ages looking to find talk programs with curious, passionate and entertaining hosts covering a variety of issues.”


SiriusXM Insight will launch Monday, January 12, at 9:00 am ET on SiriusXM channel 121.  The inaugural program will be “Stand Up! With Pete Dominick,” in recognition of Dominick’s role in inspiring the creation of the channel. 


“I’m proud to work for a company that encourages us to take our ideas and create something real with them, and that’s what we did with SiriusXM Insight” said Dominick. “This new channel will bring listeners real diversity in programming from voices that are not typically heard and delivered with vitality and passion.”


"I'm thrilled that the Aspen Institute is partnering with SiriusXM to launch the Insight channel,” said Walter Isaacson, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Aspen Institute. “SiriusXM has been a valuable disruptor to radio. With Insight, they continue to innovate by answering the call for smart, ideas-driven dialogue.”
