Indie Talk

Because what the country desperately needs is the same old shit. Emailed press release:

NEW YORK–February 4, 2008- SIRIUS Satellite Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) today announced the launch of Indie Talk, an exclusive, groundbreaking talk radio channel that will serve as an uncensored, unfiltered forum for independent thought and opinion. The channel will feature veteran actor and political maverick Ron Silver, among others. Indie Talk will give an equal voice to individuals from any affiliation or background, target the blogger generation, and be a platform for listeners across the country to react to breaking news, issues and buzz.

Indie Talk will launch Wednesday, February 6, 2008 – the morning after Super Tuesday – on SIRIUS channel 110 with Ron Silver’s daily call-in talk show, which will air Monday-Friday from 9:00 – 11:00 am ET.

Silver, like Indie Talk, represents the intersection of liberal and conservative, and the intersection of entertainment and politics. In addition to a storied Hollywood career and serving as president of Actors’ Equity Association, Silver has been politically active for many years – most recently as a member of The Council on Foreign Relations. A one-time Democrat, Silver spoke at The Republican National Convention in 2004.
