"Coming to SIRIUS XM is an amazingly freeing transition from terrestrial radio for me. Satellite radio is a forum where a diverse group of people get to speak their minds without fear," said Dr. Laura. "I can't wait to preach, teach and nag about morals, values, ethics and principles. My brain is buzzing with new ideas for my program's content, direction and expansion, including guest interviews with people who intrigue and inspire me. I couldn't be more giggly if you tickled me!"

"On SIRIUS XM, Dr. Laura will have a strong, national platform to do what she does best," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SIRIUS XM Radio.  "As the new home to one of the most popular shows in radio today, SIRIUS XM once again delivers to subscribers content that cannot be found elsewhere. We welcome Dr. Laura into our diverse, compelling and thought-provoking lineup."

Dr. Laura holds a Ph.D. in physiology from Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons, received her post-doctoral certification in Marriage, Family, and Child Counseling from the University of Southern California, and is licensed as a marriage and family therapist in the State of California. She was in private practice for 12 years and was on the faculty of the Department of Biology at the University of Southern California, and the Graduate Psychology Department at Pepperdine University. Dr. Laura is the bestselling author of twelve books for adults and four children's books. She has received an award from the Office of the Secretary of Defense for her Exceptional Public Service, and among her numerous other honors, has been the first and only woman ever to win the National Association of Broadcasters' prestigious Marconi Award for Network/Syndicated Personality.
