"The Dan Abrams Show: Where Politics Meets The Law" will premiere on SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S. channel on October 29

NEW YORK, Oct. 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today SiriusXM announced that Dan Abrams will host an exclusive SiriusXM radio show starting October 29. "The Dan Abrams Show: Where Politics Meets The Law" will air live on weekdays on P.O.T.U.S. channel 124 at 2:00 p.m. ET.

“The Dan Abrams Show” will air weekdays at 2:00 p.m. ET on SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S. channel

On his new show, Abrams will analyze the biggest news stories of the day from a legal perspective. With so much of today's breaking political news having a legal component, Abrams will delve into the issues with a team of specialists, including former federal prosecutors and other high-profile experts. The program will also feature one-on-one interviews with top newsmakers, panel discussions, and listener calls.

The addition of Dan Abrams to SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S. further positions the channel as a top source for political news, analysis, and discussion.

"The legal side of news stories is more important and prominent than ever," said Abrams. "I'm thrilled to have this opportunity on SiriusXM to really dig in and separate the legal realities from the wishful spin for listeners and people calling in to the show."  

"Dan is the perfect voice to add to our great P.O.T.U.S. lineup," said Megan Liberman, Senior Vice President of News, Talk, and Entertainment at SiriusXM. "There has never been a more critical time to address the intersection of law and politics, and I can't think of anyone better to lead that conversation."

Over the course of his career, Abrams has established himself as one of the nation's top legal analysts, first covering the O.J. Simpson trial for Court TV and NBC News. Now the Chief Legal Analyst for ABC News, Abrams is well known for his shrewd analysis of legal issues ranging from high-profile criminal trials to the Mueller investigations and the Supreme Court.

Abrams is also the host of A&E's Live PD, the highest rated live show on all of cable among adults 18-49 and 25-54.

As a media entrepreneur, he created the influential website Mediaite.com, which chronicles the intersection of media and politics, and founded the popular OTT and linear network Law&Crime, among other projects. His work has been acknowledged with numerous Emmy and Edward R. Murrow Awards, and he has covered nearly every major national legal story of the past two decades. The Duke University and Columbia Law School graduate also recently penned the New York Times bestselling book Lincoln's Last Trial.
