Conan O'Brien is bringing his talents to SiriusXM! The broadcasting company has announced that O'Brien will be launching an original comedy channel, Team Coco Radio, for audiences to enjoy. The late-night king is no stranger to the limelight, so we are excited to hear him take his talents to a new platform. But what exactly is Team Coco Radio? Let's talk a closer look.
Team Coco is a digital media and podcast network backed by O'Brien, who carefully organizes "Conan-approved podcasts for every mood." The network launched over ten years ago and since then has gained a serious following of dedicated listeners. Team Coco's branded and digital content reaches approximately 17 million fans across its social media and over 1 billion annual video views on Facebook and YouTube - and now that it's been acquired by SiriusXM, it is guaranteed to skyrocket in its audiences. The channel is home to Conan-led podcasts such as Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend and plenty more hosted by some of our favorite personalities. From Literally with Rob Lowe to May I Elaborate? with JB Smoove & Miles Grose, Scam Goddess with Laci Mosley, and so many more guaranteed to give you a good laugh.
Conan entered a five-year agreement with SiriusXM as part of the acquisition, which includes him continuing as host on his much-loved podcast, Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend, as well as interviews and stand-up moments from his TBS show and more. "Finally, a use of satellite technology that in no way benefits mankind," explained O'Brien. The comedian will also provide commentary throughout the 24/7 programming, recalling hilarious BTS memories and other stories for listeners to enjoy.
"We're thrilled that Conan will be executive producing a brand new comedy channel exclusively for SiriusXM," said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM's President and Chief Content Officer. "What makes this channel special is that our listeners will be able to hear from Conan himself, as he shares his favorite memories and takes listeners into his thought process, truly making Team Coco Radio a treasure trove for anyone who appreciates great comedy." The channel is planning on debuting original programs, events led by the comedian, and even musical performances for its listeners. So, make sure to take a listen to Team Coco Radio coming to SiriusXM exclusively on November 15.
