NEW YORK, Oct. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SiriusXM announced today that Donny Deutsch will host a live, limited-run one-hour show October 19 - 23, on SiriusXM. The new show, Dialing Donny, will have Deutsch taking calls from listeners—dishing advice on relationships, sex, career and all aspects of life.
Examining the issues that matter to women but through a male perspective, Deutsch will deliver candid, honest and quick witted discussions in this special show. He is part big brother, part big bad wolf in this no holds barred new series.
"Sincere, sometimes brutal, but always likeable, Donny will bring his charmingly direct style to this special format of talk programming," said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM's President and Chief Content Officer. "Audiences will want to tune-in to catch the unpredictable Donny field live calls on a variety of topics."
"I am so excited to partner with SiriusXM, one of the greatest communication brands out there," said Deutsch. "Dialing Donny is a great platform for me to do two of my favorite things in life—give advice and connect with an audience."
Deutsch is the star, executive producer and creator of a new original comedy series, Donny!, which premieres Tuesday, November 10, on USA Network. This half-hour scripted series takes a satirical look at the media, wealth and modern romance through the eyes of Deutsch's fictionalized character based on the real-life ad-man and TV personality. He is the former host of CNBC's The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch and regularly appears on MSNBC's Morning Joe. Deutsch is the author of Often Wrong, Never in Doubt and The Big Idea: How to Make Your Entrepreneurial Dreams Come True from the AHA Moment to Your First Million. He is also Chairman Emeritus of Deutsch Inc., one of the world's leading advertising agencies.
Dialing Donny will air beginning Monday, October 19, at 8:00 pm ET on SiriusXM Stars, channel 109, featuring diverse programming for women. The channel is available to SiriusXM subscribers nationwide on satellite radios, and on the SiriusXM app and online at siriusxm.com.
