SiriusXM launches Morning Show with Pete Dominick


Sirius XMSiriusXM host/stand-up comedian Pete Dominick will host a new daily morning drive call-in show, “Stand Up! with Pete Dominick.” Beginning 2/11, it will air live weekdays from 6:00-9:00 am ET, replaying from 6:00-9:00 am PT, on Indie, SiriusXM channel 104.

Inspired by his fascination with politics, public policy and social issues, Dominick approaches everything with his razor sharp wit and tongue, challenging listeners to take a stand and keep an open mind. Dominick will explore everything from foreign policy and economics to parenting and education, as well as the day’s top stories, with expert guests and listeners nationwide. Dominick will interview a wide range of guests—from policymakers to authors to celebrities to filmmakers to veterans and beyond—inviting them to tell their stories without agendas, scripts, or time limits

Dominick joined SiriusXM in August 2006 as a host on Raw Dog Comedy. He launched Stand Up! on non-partisan political talk channel SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S. in February 2008, and the show quickly became a can’t-miss stop for experts and newsmakers. Dominick also made news himself in September 2010: his interview with then-CNN host Rick Sanchez sparked a controversy when Sanchez made comments viewed as anti-Semitic that led to his being fired. For the last six years, Dominick has also had the sought-after job of opening for Stephen Colbert on “The Colbert Report,” a job he’ll leave to focus on his new SiriusXM show.
