Sirius XM Announces 'Breitbart News Saturday': Launch Show March 1st with Guests Ted Cruz, Mark Levin
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mark Levin will headline the inaugural Breitbart News Saturday show, on Sirius XM Patriot Channel 125, that will debut on March 1 from 10 AM EST to 1 PM EST.
Hosted by Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and a rotation of Breitbart News editors and contributors, Breitbart News Saturday will continue and expand on the format of the Breitbart News Sunday franchise that features stories and narratives that drive the upcoming week’s news cycle from the pages of Breitbart News. Breitbart News Saturday will supplement commentary and analysis from the contributors and editors of the Breitbart News Network with some of the biggest newsmakers in the political and cultural landscape the world over.
“Since joining the SiriusXM Patriot lineup, Breitbart News Sunday has set the table for each week’s conservative political conversation," said Dave Gorab, Vice President & General Manager, Talk Programming, SiriusXM. "We are pleased to continue our commitment to live, interactive weekend programming with the addition of Breitbart News Saturday – where Stephen K. Bannon and team will deliver ‘week in review’ analysis and additional discussions with high-level conservative leaders and newsmakers."
The inaugural program will be a tribute to Andrew Breitbart on the second anniversary of his death in 2012. Breitbart CEO/President Larry Solov said that "the continued growth of the Breitbart News Network is a testament to the vision of Andrew, and we work hard to extend his legacy of the democratization of news into every area of news delivery.”
Bannon and Solov will co-host the inaugural show which will feature exclusive interviews with “The Great One” Mark Levin; Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT); Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Steve King (R-IA), Mark Meadows (R-NC), Tim Huelskamp (R-KS); Heritage Foundation's Stephen Moore; True the Vote's Anita MonCrief; and Breitbart contributor Sonnie Johnson. There will also be a special segment of the show with Sirius XM host and Breitbart contributor David Webb.
Bannon said that since Breitbart News Sunday debuted last April the program has "experienced tremendous growth," and that is why a Saturday program is being added.
"We are incredibly proud of the quality and caliber of our guests, and are excited to expand our coverage. We will continue to deliver thought-provoking dialog and discussion with both our guests and audience," Bannon said. "SiriusXM has been a tremendous partner, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them and growing what we believe to be the smartest and savviest audience in radio.”
