Laura Coates to Host New Daily Show On SiriusXM
SiriusXM has announced that CNN legal analyst, former federal prosecutor, and bestselling author Laura Coates will host a live, two-hour talk show exclusively on SiriusXM.
The Laura Coates Show will feature Coates' lively analysis of the trending news of the day and impactful interviews with entertainers, politicians, DC insiders and game changers on the topics of politics, pop culture and everything in between.
"I am thrilled to join SiriusXM and have the chance to connect with listeners outside the soundbite world," said Laura Coates. "I can't wait to delve deep into the issues that matter most to us all and listen-in as listeners nationwide and guests share their emotionally charged stories and points of view."
The launch of "The Laura Coates Show" coincides with SiriusXM host, publisher and award-winning journalist Karen Hunter taking on an expanded role as a programming consultant to the Urban View channel. Hunter will oversee the direction of the channel - further positioning it as the radio home of diverse African American programming and elevating the national conversation to be reflective of the complexity of the African American community.
"Laura Coates joins SiriusXM's Urban View as we expand the channel's range and add fresh voices to its already compelling talk programming," said Karen Hunter, Urban View host and Programming Consultant, SiriusXM. "Laura's gift for translating complex issues and ideas, and demystifying legal issues, is remarkable and we can't wait for her to engage with our growing family of listeners."
Laura Coates is an on-air legal analyst for CNN.
