“Rosie Radio” launching on Sirius XM


SIRIUS XM Radio announced “Rosie Radio,” Rosie O’Donnell’s exclusive live daily morning show, will launch on 11/2. Rosie Radio is the Emmy-award winning talk show host, movie star, and stand-up comedienne’s radio debut.

Rosie Radio will air Monday through Friday from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm ET/7:00 – 9:00 am PT on SIRIUS XM Stars, SIRIUS channel 102 and XM channel 155. Rosie Radio will replay from 8:00 – 10:00 pm ET/5:00 – 7:00 pm PT, with a “Best of the Week” airing at various times on the weekend.

Broadcasting from a custom-built home studio near her kids and her crafts, Rosie will invite SIRIUS XM listeners from across the country to pull up a chair next to her to hear what’s on her mind, and to tell her what’s on theirs.

For two hours daily Rosie will have a forum to explore any topic, issue, or event on her mind. Topics and guests will be driven by Rosie’s passions, interests, and hobbies. The live, call-in format of Rosie Radio will offer her millions of fans the chance to connect and interact with her on an extraordinary level. The phone lines will be open every day for Rosie and her listeners to talk about anything and everything: raising kids, losing weight, watching TV, finding inspirational people, hearing Rosie’s stories and opinions, and discovering her most inspirational people. She’s equally fascinated by stay-at-home moms and stars of Broadway, and wants them all to participate in the conversation.

Rosie Radio regulars include lifelong friend Jeanne Kopetic, who will stop by Tuesdays to hang out and reminisce about growing up in the ‘80s, high school life, and the music they love. Janette Barber, Rosie’s longtime friend, producer and fellow comedienne, will be by her side as the show’s executive producer. Rosie’s friend and makeup artist Helene Macaulay will also join the fun, appearing regularly on Fridays. Rosie, Helene and Janette are known for their “Jahero” (JAnette, HElene, and ROsie) series, previously done in the past as web video blogs and a favorite of visitors to rosie.com. “Jahero” will now be a regular Friday feature on Rosie Radio during which listeners can ask Rosie, Janette and Helene any questions they like. Rosie’s former assistant and Taboo costume designer Bobby Pearce will also be a regular, chiming in about everything from weight loss to Broadway.
