Kelly to interview former President Donald Trump for a special edition of her program airing on September 14
NEW YORK – September 7, 2023 – SiriusXM announced today that Megyn Kelly has signed a new agreement to continue hosting The Megyn Kelly Show live on SiriusXM. Under the multi-year deal, the veteran journalist and legal expert will deliver her signature commentary and hard-hitting interviews through the 2024 election season and beyond. The Megyn Kelly Show will premiere exclusively on SiriusXM Triumph channel 111 on weekdays from 12-2pm ET, with the program later available on all major podcast platforms.
The Megyn Kelly Show will also air a special edition of the program on September 14, with Kelly set to host a longform interview with Donald Trump. This is the first time she has conducted a sit-down interview with the former president since May 2016.
“I’m thrilled to continue my relationship with the great people at SiriusXM who have been tremendously supportive of our show from the start,” said Kelly. “In an age where conversations are being stifled and news skewed to please the politics of only a small set of people, it is a privilege to work with a company that values free speech and open, respectful, elevated debate.”
Since The Megyn Kelly Show premiered on SiriusXM Triumph, the program has featured in-depth conversations with major political figures including Gov. Ron DeSantis; Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy; former Gov. Chris Christie; former Ambassador Nikki Haley; Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.; Sen. Ted Cruz; Sen. Marco Rubio; former Attorney General Bill Barr and more; as well as notable names in culture including Goldie Hawn, Richard Dreyfuss, Dennis Quaid, Roseanne Barr and Amanda Knox. Kelly has also regularly landed first interviews with people in the news, including most recently former ESPN sportscaster Sage Steele, as well as IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler.
In addition to its success on SiriusXM live radio, The Megyn Kelly Show has become one of the top podcasts in the country. In the two years since the show has joined SiriusXM, it has added more than one million new YouTube subscribers, making it one of the fastest-growing digital video news shows as well.
The Megyn Kelly Show will continue to be produced in collaboration with Red Seat Ventures. Video of the program will also remain available on the SiriusXM app and on YouTube.
