NEW YORK, July 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SiriusXM today announced that host David Webb will attend the Republican National Committee summer meeting in Cleveland, offering candidates for the Republican nomination a unique platform to reflect on their candidacy and share personal anecdotes of interest to American voters.
Webb's interviews – conducted in a five-question format – will profile the candidates' life journeys, as well as their personal interests outside of politics. The interviews will air August 6th on Patriot, SiriusXM's conservative talk channel (125), and the non-partisan POTUS channel (124).
"As we kick-off SiriusXM's coverage of the 2016 election in an extremely fast-paced and politically-charged environment, the notion of slowing down for a moment and giving each candidate an opportunity to introduce him or herself in a personal manner is something we feel very strongly about," said Dave Gorab, SiriusXM's Vice President and General Manager, Talk Programming. "With each candidate profile, our desire is to break from policy soundbites and give SiriusXM listeners the opportunity to better understand the person behind the candidacy."
Webb—host of SiriusXM's "The David Webb Show"—explores breaking political, economic and national security news with top-level newsmakers, community leaders, other notable guests and listeners nationwide weeknights from 9:00 pm – 12:00 am ET on conservative talk channel SiriusXM Patriot.
This is an open press opportunity. All credentialed media in attendance at the RNC Summer Meeting are invited to broadcast audio and video from these conversations with proper attribution to SiriusXM. Media inquiries may be directed to Patrick Reilly ([email protected]) or Danielle Lynn ([email protected]) in SiriusXM Communications.
