SIRIUS Satellite Radio today announced that Jane Pratt, founder and former editor-in-chief of both “Sassy” and “Jane,” will host “Jane Radio,” a live, weekly talk show that brings her irreverent and refreshingly candid personality to satellite radio.
“Jane Radio,” debuting this fall exclusively on SIRIUS Stars channel 102, will be a live, weekly three hour show. From the “Jane rant” of each week to short segments produced “on the street,” Janes show will explore current events, her life, and through their calls, the lives of her listeners. Pratt will interact heavily with listeners through phone calls and segments such as “Jane Needs Help” — during which listeners will be invited to help Jane with her problems — and “Songs We Love,” during which Jane will talk to her listeners about the best new music.
“Maybe it is all that experience I have talking to girl friends into the wee hours, but I cant wait to produce a show with SIRIUS that actually reflects in tone and content the way women talk to each other when their husbands and boyfriends arent in the room,” said Jane Pratt. “Just as Jane magazine always maintained a 15% male readership, I am sure Jane Radio will inevitably get some men to listen in and learn.”
“Jane Pratt is a pioneer in the world of media. She talks to women in a voice they respond to and connect with, and she will bring this skill to satellite radio,” said Scott Greenstein, President, Entertainment and Sports, SIRIUS Satellite Radio. “Jane Radio is a fun and exciting addition to the innovative and diverse lineup of programming SIRIUS has to offer for women.”
“Jane Radio” joins an exciting and expanding lineup of womens programming on SIRIUS that includes “Candace Bushnells Sex, Success and Sensibility”; Martha Stewart Living Radio; Cosmo Radio; “Lighten Up with Richard Simmons”; and two upcoming shows with Barbara Walters, “Ask Barbara Anything” and “Barbara Walters The Best of the Very Best.”
