Joel OsteenSiriusXM will launch a new exclusive radio channel headlined by Joel Osteen, world-renowned spiritual and inspirational figure, and Senior Pastor of Lakewood Church, America’s largest Christian congregation. Osteen airs a syndicated Sunday morning TV show as well.

“Joel Osteen Radio” will debut this fall and bring Osteen’s message to SiriusXM listeners nationwide, showcasing exclusive weekly call-in shows hosted by both Joel Osteen and Joel’s wife, Victoria Osteen, co-pastor of Lakewood Church. In addition, listeners will hear Osteen’s weekly Sunday message alongside the catalog of his inspirational and motivational sermons past and present. The launch date for “Joel Osteen Radio,” as well as additional programming elements on the channel, will be announced at a later date.

SiriusXM will launch the programming initiative with the live, exclusive radio broadcast of “America’s Night of Hope” – 6/7 from New York City’s Yankee Stadium.  SiriusXM Stars, channel 106, will broadcast this one-night only event live beginning at 7 PM ET.

“Victoria and I are excited about this new venture with SiriusXM,” Osteen said. “We are humbled and appreciative to bring our message to the millions of SiriusXM listeners every day – and equally excited to get to know them personally through our call-in radio programs. We truly cannot wait to get started!”

“Millions of people are drawn to Joel Osteen’s words and uplifting message every week,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer. “We’re honored to work with Joel and Victoria to create a new SiriusXM channel that will give people around the country access to the Osteens in a way that has never been done before. With their weekly call-in shows and Joel’s positive message and spirit, Joel Osteen Radio will be both interactive and inspiring.”
