(WXIA) – Megachurch pastor Joel Osteen is set to get his own channel on satellite radio broadcaster SiriusXM, the broadcaster announced Monday.
Joel Osteen Radio will debut this fall and feature Osteen's weekly sermons from his Lakewood Church in Houston. The channel will also feature weekly call-in shows hosted by Osteen and his wife Victoria. The channel will also showcase past messages and sermons.
"Victoria and I are excited about this new venture with SiriusXM," Osteen said. "We are humbled and appreciative to bring our message to the millions of SiriusXM listeners every day – and equally excited to get to know them personally through our call-in radio programs. We truly cannot wait to get started!"
"Millions of people are drawn to Joel Osteen's words and uplifting message every week," said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM's President and Chief Content Officer. "We're honored to work with Joel and Victoria to create a new SiriusXM channel that will give people around the country access to the Osteens in a way that has never been done before. With their weekly call-in shows and Joel's positive message and spirit, Joel Osteen Radio will be both interactive and inspiring."
SiriusXM says in conjunction with the forthcoming channel, they plan to carry "America's Night of Hope" a worship and music service featuring Osteen, live from Yankee Stadium on Saturday, June 7. The program will air on SiriusXM Stars, channel 106, beginning at 7 pm.
