NEW YORK, July 19, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- SIRIUS Satellite Radio (Nasdaq: SIRI) today announced that 35-year old host Andrew Wilkow will bring The Wilkow Majority to the campaign trail in the months leading up to the 2008 presidential election. Wilkow will start the tour this fall and journey to college campuses, small town caucuses, and the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis next summer, where he will broadcast his SIRIUS show.
The Wilkow Majority airs live Monday - Friday from 12:00 - 3:00 pm ET on SIRIUS Patriot channel 144.
Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay will serve as campaign analyst for The Wilkow Majority, and join Wilkow for speaking engagements at college campuses across the country, portions of which will be broadcast on SIRIUS. In addition, Wilkow will welcome a variety of guests on his show, ranging from everyday citizens to local volunteers to politicians and campaign staff.
"This is not going to be yet another 'bus tour' covering the '08 campaign," said Andrew Wilkow. "I'm driving myself across America to take the country's political pulse. The Wilkow Majority and SIRIUS are a real force in the arena of political analysis, and we're writing the play book for a whole new game."
"I am a proud member of the Wilkow Majority and it's about time we take our message to college students who have to deal with liberal professors and uneducated peers who drown the Majority's message out," said Tom DeLay. "We're going to bring a positive message to students who deserve to know the full truth about our political landscape."
"Andrew Wilkow's ability to ignite conversation and spark debate on The Wilkow Majority, combined with his cutting-edge attitude towards politics, makes him an ideal candidate to hit the road and connect with voters of all ages during this presidential campaign," said Scott Greenstein, President, Entertainment and Sports, SIRIUS. "Wilkow is the next generation of political talk, and will provide a roadmap to the key people and events of the campaign to SIRIUS' national audience."
In addition to The Wilkow Majority, SIRIUS Patriot features the conservative voices of Bill Bennett, G. Gordon Liddy, Mike Church, and Michael Reagan.
