You’ve heard it here folks…
Rosie O’Donnell will host a show this fall, but this time it will be on radio, Sirius XM radio Mondays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Sirius channel 102 and XM channel 155.
The deal came through after she appeared on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM show earlier this year. People were surprised (I know that I was) when she appeared on his show. Rosie O’Donnell seems like the kind of person the shock-jock Howard Stern would make miserable (well, I know he used to.) The listening public’s response was very positive and why would it not be? Rosie O’Donnell is a scream!
Being the great Rosie O’Donnell, she’s looking into working a deal with Sirius XM Radio for a monthly discount for her loyal bloggers (of course you know, I’m one of them…you should be to: http://www.rosie.com )
Rosie O’ Donnell was not even interested in radio until she was invited to Howard Stern’s Show. Then Sirius XM Radio told her that she could do the show from her home – well, that sealed the deal. Rosie and her wife, Kelli O’Donnell, like to incorporate their children’s schedules around their work schedules (Kelli O’Donnell is co-founder of r family vacations along with Gregg Kaminsky http://www.rfamilyvacations.com/ .)
Congrats Rosie – we love you at http://www.hluizpresents.com
