Rosie O’Donnell gets morning radio show

U.S. comedienne and TV personality Rosie O'Donnell has signed on as host of a new daily morning radio show, SIRIUS XM Radio announced Thursday.

Rosie Radio is set to start this fall and slated to air Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET/7 a.m. to 9 a.m. PT, exclusively on SIRIUS XM Stars, SIRIUS channel 102 and XM channel 155.

The two-hour talk show will feature the entertainer chatting about her various passions and interests -- an eclectic mix of humor, pop culture and serious conversation, Sirius said.

Rosie O'Donnell is a powerful, dynamic and entertaining voice and now you can only get her on SIRIUS XM, Scott Greenstein, president and chief content officer of SIRIUS XM Radio, said in a statement. Rosie's millions of fans will hear her as they never have before, and have the chance to call in and talk to her and her intriguing guests. 'Rosie Radio' will entertain, inform, surprise and delight.

This is an exciting new adventure -- two hours of talk show entertainment, without having to wear makeup. Perfection, O'Donnell added. I can't wait to jumpstart each day with millions of SIRIUS XM listeners across the country.
