HART TO HOST WEEKLY SHOW, CURATE COMEDIANS FOR NEW CHANNEL
SiriusXM and Kevin Hart are teaming up to launch a full time comedy channel together. The radio station will be an extension of Hart’s Laugh Lout Loud Network which has been offering app based digital programming to comedy fans since August.
The new channel will launch early next year and feature a weekly show that Hart will host, and will run comedy programming from comedians handpicked by Hart himself.
“I am very excited to create a channel on SiriusXM that will be home to new frontiers in comedy,” said Hart. “After launching our Laugh Out Loud video network, which is off to a fast start, our goal is to make the world laugh by reaching people wherever they are. SiriusXM is the perfect partner to introduce a whole new audience to our Laugh Out Loud brand. The world will soon discover that – believe it or not – I’m even funnier on radio.”
Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM said “Kevin Hart is an unparalleled entertainer. SiriusXM is excited to have Kevin create a new channel that showcases his many talents and features other comedy voices chosen by Kevin. Our subscribers will love it.”
