Fired CBC Politico Evan Solomon Surfaces with Sirius XM


Satcaster Launches 2015 Election Campaign Show



Today SiriusXM announced the launch of SiriusXM’s Everything Is Political: Campaign 2015 with Evan Solomon, a show that will follow every aspect of Canada’s federal election campaign. The show premieres Thursday, August 6 from 6 pm to 7 pm on SiriusXM’s Canada Talks.

Hosted by one of Canada’s most experienced political journalists, Evan Solomon, this one-hour daily political talk program will examine all angles of the country’s federal election campaign. The program will break news as well as feature the key players in the election including members of Parliament, leaders, strategists, and pollsters.

“We are excited to be teaming up with one of Canada’s most experienced political journalists,” said John Lewis, SVP, Programming and Operations, SiriusXM Canada. “SiriusXM’s Everything Is Political will be the political talk destination, offering listeners the highs and lows with passion, personality, and the news that make up a campaign.”

Evan Solomon has covered federal and provincial politics for more than 15 years – as well as some of Canada’s biggest news stories of the time from 9/11 to the recent attack on Canada’s Parliament. Solomon brings a depth of experience and credibility that drove his CBC Radio show “The House” to close to one million listeners each week. As well, his television program “Power and Politics” was the highest-rated original show on CBC News Network.

“I am pleased to be part of SiriusXM Canada for this historic election campaign,” said Evan Solomon. “With the help of a talented pool of Ottawa-based journalists, we will bring a unique perspective to the campaign and aim to become a required everyday source of essential national campaign material for our listeners.”

The show will launch on Thursday, August 6  ahead of the first televised leaders’ debate. A post-debate show will air on Friday, August 7. The show will then air Thursdays during the balance of August and daily Monday to Friday starting in September and continuing until Nov. 5.

(Solomon anchored CBC News Network’s daily show Power and Politics and CBC Radio’s weekly The House until he was fired in June, following a Toronto Star report that alleged the 47-year-old used his position to broker lucrative art deals between a friend and wealthy interview subjects.)
