More recently, the company reported that Breitbart News Network will initiate a key expansion in its radio programming, introducing a new daily show and additional weekend shows, all telecasting exclusively on company’s Patriot channel 125.
Sirius XM reported that Breitbart News Executive Chairman Mr. Steve Bannon will revisit as a regular host together with Alex Marlow, the Editor-in-Chief, on the Patriot channel starting December 5. Bannon’s commitment to the company’s radio platform confirms that he will have a notable presence across Breitbart’s evening and morning drive time programming, and also on weekends.
He will also be the leader of Breitbart News mid-term election reporting on the Patriot channel, and the 2020 presidential campaign. Bannon previously hosted Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Network Daily, which premiered in 2015 and became a must-stop place for candidates looking for the 2016 GOP nomination. Commenting on the recent changes, Bannon expressed that as she has stated all along, everything he brought to the Trump campaign was directly from the listeners he conversed with every morning on Breitbart on Sirius XM’s Patriot channel. From the time he left the White House, returning to the microphone was extremely important to him.
Dave Gorab, the VP and GM, Talk Programming, expressed that during the 2016 campaign, Bannon empowered Sirius XM Patriot audience to have a voice and become an important part of the electoral procedure. The outcome was a lasting association between Steve and his listeners, who have eagerly expected and sought his return to radio.
