NEW YORK, March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SiriusXM today announced the launch of "The Perri Peltz Show," a weekly show featuring veteran journalist, filmmaker and SiriusXM host Perri Peltz, discussing the issues that are most relevant to working women and mothers, ranging from their personal challenges to how these issues affect society at large. The show will provide a forum where listeners and accomplished guests can explore, not only what the world expects from women, but also what women expect from themselves.
"The Perri Peltz Show" will air Tuesdays at 11:00 am ET on SiriusXM Stars, channel 106 and through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at siriusxm.com. It will replay on Tuesdays at 6:00 pm ET.
The launch of the weekly, one-hour show will feature seasoned editor, media maven, and author Tina Brown as its first guest. Tina will talk with Perri about her much publicized career leading some of the most iconic magazines, including Vanity Fair and The New Yorker, her upcoming memoir spanning her years in media, and this week's Women in the World summit, the annual event she co-hosts offering a stage for women of all walks of life to share their stories of travails and bravery, stretching from war zones to Washington, and urging women everywhere to get involved and affect change.
"I want this show to be an open forum where smart, dynamic women can come together and share their opinions about the issues that matter most to us, both in our personal lives and our public, working lives," said Perri Peltz. "It's about highlighting the inspiring stories of women who are reinventing what it means to be a woman in today's world."
"Perri is a media veteran who brings a world of experience and knowledge to a radio show unlike anything in radio today: intelligent talk and conversation with women leaders from various fields," said Scott Greenstein. "Perri's approachable style will be a wonderful asset for listeners wanting to know more about big issues affecting women today."
"The Perri Peltz Show" will be a forum to bring to the table problems affecting women and possible solutions. The topic range will be broad, from career successes to challenges both in the home and in the workplace, as well as issues related to poverty, health, ending violence against women and increasing opportunities to place women on the road to greater positions of power.
