We’ve been incredibly proud to watch the growth of Hidden Track founder Slade Sohmer’s HyperVocal Network over the past few years and wanted to hip our readers to Slade’s new project – a SiriusXM radio show. Starting next Monday, July 30, Sohmer will team up with HyperVocal co-founder Lee Brenner to host an innovative program called Politics Powered By Twitter on SiriusXM’s P.O.T.U.S. channel (channel 124).
Each day from Monday through Friday at 6PM ET (replay at 9) Politics Powered By Twitter will report to listeners what politics are being talked about on Twitter, including trends and Tweets from politicians, journalists and celebrities who have active voices on the key political issues, electoral races and breaking news. You can even participate by sending tweets to @politicsradio.
Here’s some more information from a press release…
“The 24-hour news cycle has transformed into a 140-character news cycle,” said Dick Costolo, CEO, Twitter. “During the election season, Twitter is a place where news breaks, candidates connect with constituents, and discussions flourish. Politics Powered by Twitter on SiriusXM is a great way to dive deeper into real-time election news and continue the conversations that begin on Twitter.”
“Twitter has provided experts, celebrities and people around the world the ability to react to, comment on and influence politics as never before. Our new radio show, Politics Powered by Twitter, captures that energy and excitement in a brand new radio format that will energize our audience,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. “Politics Powered by Twitter is the latest innovation by SiriusXM to bring politics from every perspective to our more than twenty-two million subscribers across the country.”
Be sure to tune in on Monday, July 30, for the first episode.
