Under the new long-term agreement, “Joe Madison The Black Eagle” will continue to air daily on SiriusXM’s Urban View channel 126, 6:00 am – 10:00 am ET, On Demand and through the SiriusXM app.
SiriusXM listeners can expect to hear the renowned host discuss the political news of the day with leading politicians, newsmakers and experts, and challenge his listeners – and himself – to “do something about it.” Widely recognized by the talk media industry, Urban View’s marquee host has interviewed an impressive roster of top world leaders – including President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on multiple occasions – and regularly welcomes Members of Congress, community leaders, diplomats and other notable guests.
“Joe is the foundation of our Urban View channel, a tireless campaigner for social change and one of the best interviewers working in radio today,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Office, SiriusXM. “We are thrilled to have him exclusively on SiriusXM and look forward to many more years of great radio with Joe.”
“I am very proud of the daily conversations we are having on our daily SiriusXM show,” said Joe Madison, SiriusXM host. “At a critical time for our nation, when politics and race relations seem to be the driving forces behind the news, I feel honored to have the continued opportunity to have this influential platform that helps affect change.”
A constant participant in the political and national debate, “Joe Madison the Black Eagle” broadcasts from SiriusXM’s studios in Washington D.C., furthering the conversation on national politics, policing, and race relations crafting solutions to the problems plaguing the African American community.
In early 2015, Madison hosted a special record-setting 52-hour broadcast of his SiriusXM show and raised more than $250,000 for the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture and later broadcast live, exclusively, during the museum’s historic inauguration. Madison was named a finalist by the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) for the documentary USA & Cuba Reconnected based on his historic broadcast from Cuba in June 2015, the first national American radio talk broadcast from the island nation in more than 50 years. In addition, he was a recipient of the Civil Rights Outstanding Leadership Justice by Action Award, the highest honor given by the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement (NOBLE). A former Executive Director for the NAACP in Detroit, Madison has served on the National Board of Directors of the NAACP and is currently a member of the Board of Governors of the American Red Cross.
Madison was recently named a 2017 nominee for induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame and placed #8 in Talkers Magazine 2017 Heavy Hundred List. He joined SiriusXM in 2001.
The Urban View channel is the radio home of diverse African American programming on SiriusXM.
