That’s right, “Politics Powered by Twitter,” a live show powered by the Twitterverse, will be making its debut on the SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S channel tonight.
The one hour daily political show will air at 6pm ET on the non-partisan channel (124) and will include all kinds of political tweets from politicians, journalists, and celebrities that feel the need to chime in on key political issues.
Subscribers (preferably those not driving) will be invited to send comments and questions to @politicsradio during program to be part of the conversation as it is happening.
“The 24-hour news cycle has transformed into a 140-character news cycle,” said Dick Costolo, CEO, Twitter. “During the election season, Twitter is a place where news breaks, candidates connect with constituents, and discussions flourish. Politics Powered by Twitter on SiriusXM is a great way to dive deeper into real-time election news and continue the conversations that begin on Twitter.”
Checking on Twitter to grab feedback and gauge listener opinion is nothing new for many of the hosts on SiriusXM but, this afternoon drive show, hosted by Lee Brenner and Slade Sohmer, is the first of its kind to base its entire format on Tweets!
