SiriusXM has announced that Chuck Todd--NBC News Political Director & Chief White House Correspondent, and host of MSNBC's "The Daily Rundown"--will host Unscripted with Chuck Todd, a weekly Saturday morning show on which he will speak with notable guests from the worlds of politics, sports, music, entertainment/pop culture, news, literature and more to explore the different sides of newsmakers that are not seen in traditional settings.
Unscripted with Chuck Todd will premiere on Saturday, December 7 at 9:00 am ET and air Saturdays from 9:00 -- 10:00 am ET on SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S. channel 124--SiriusXM's 24/7 non-partisan channel dedicated to the "Politics of the United States"--via satellite and through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App on smartphone, other connected devices and online at siriusxm.com.
"In this day and age, people tend to think they have more access to newsmakers and politicians, when in many ways they actually have less. With this show on SiriusXM we'll aim to help listeners get to know these powerful people in a different way-- to know them as human beings, not as sound bite machines," said Todd. "Politics today is so much a part of our pop culture, and I look forward to talking to the many famous amateur political junkies out there who just happen to have day jobs in the worlds of sports,
Hollywood, Wall Street
and everywhere in between."
"We welcome veteran journalist Chuck Todd as he goes outside his normal field of reporting and delves into the personal passions and interests of not just politicians but leaders from virtually every field of interest," said Dave Gorab, Vice President & General Manager, Talk Programming, SiriusXM. "Unscripted with Chuck Todd is new territory for him, but will be built on Chuck's journalistic savvy and experience. It will be a weekly hour that takes newsmakers out of their predictable comfort range to reveal interests and viewpoints listeners haven't heard before."
