Sirius XM Radio Inc. (NASDAQ:SIRI) announced today that Jim Norton—comedian, bestselling author and co-host of the Opie & Anthony show—will host The Jim Norton Show, a live, weekly call-in show on which he will offer advice mixed with humor on life, sex, love, work, and whatever else listeners want help with.
“From years of being on the road and on the air, Jim Norton has seen it all, and he’s never afraid to give his honest, unflinching opinion on any topic. On ‘The Jim Norton Show,’ he will turn the same sharp eye and mind that he often turns on himself on listeners and guests, and the results are sure to be uncomfortable for some—and hilarious for all. We’re excited to expand Jim’s on-air presence on our platform with this new show.”
– Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM Radio
Jim Norton also hosts Norton’s Obsessed on Ozzy’s Boneyard, a nightly music show on Ozzy Osbourne’s SiriusXM channel Ozzy’s Boneyard (Sirius Radio and XM Radio channel 38) on which he plays his favorite classic hard rock tunes weeknights at 9:00 pm ET.
“The best part of me doing an advice show is that I am completely unqualified to give advice to anyone.”
– Jim Norton
