Breitbart to Launch Daily SiriusXM Show


From Hadas Gold writing at Politico:

Breitbart, the conservative firebrand news site, is getting its own daily morning drive-time radio show on SiriusXM.

The show will be hosted by Breitbart Executive Chairman Stephen Bannon and co-hosted by Breitbart editor-in-chief Alex Marlow and will air from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. Mondays through Fridays on the satellite radio provider’s “Patriot Channel”, which also features the likes of Sean Hannity, Mark Levin and Glenn Beck. The show launches Nov. 2.

“The show is the natural extension [of],” Bannon said in an interview. “It reflects what’s on the pages of the site so we couldn’t be happier.”

Bannon already hosts a Breitbart show on the SiriusXM Patriot channel on Saturdays and Sundays, so the weekday addition means Breitbart is one of the only seven-days-a-week conservative radio shows. Having a presence seven days a week means the show can advance narratives instead of spot stories, something Bannon said also attempts to do. For Breitbart, that narrative focuses on the conservative grassroots, the kinds of people Bannon said others sometimes write off as the “crazies.”
