Moving to SiriusXM Progress 127

So excited to be launching our show, "The Michelangelo Signorile Show," tomorrow, Monday (3 ET), on a new channel, the rebranded SiriusXM Left, which will now be SiriusXM Progress 127. Progress 127 is all about where we are today, all the various groups and individuals fighting for equality and freedom, including gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, and fighting against corporate greed, government indifference and right-wing bigotry and discrimination.

There is a whole new line-up of hosts on SiriusXM Progress 127 (including a new political morning show, The Agenda with Ari Rabin-Havt) and I'm excited that "The Michelangelo Signorile Show" will air from 3 ET to 6 ET. I hope you're all going to join me and our amazing team of producers. It's been 10 years since I began hosting "The Michelangelo Signorile Show" at SiriusXM OutQ. I helped to launch that channel, the first and only 24/7 national LGBT radio station, as a host at the very beginning of the channel and one of the first talk hosts on all of SiriusXM. It was amazing to help make history and do some ground-breaking interviews on OutQ over the past 10 years.

Now, while OutQ continues to be vital and heard on channel 109, it's a new beginning for our show on SiriusXM Progress, being part of the larger progressive movement, where gay issues should be. We've led the debate, as LGBT advocates, over the past few years, and I'm glad to now being smack in the middle of the progressive movement, as a gay host, at Sirius XM Progress.

It will be the same show -- an LGBT perspective on all the issues in our world, and certainly covering gay issues themselves from every angle -- but on a much larger platform, with a wider audience. Our same expert team of producers is with us: Executive producer David Guggenheim (who is the executive Producer of SiriusXM Progress 127), producer Sean Bertollo and Associate Producer Morgan Hahn.

So join us each weekday 3-6 ET. Check out the SiriusXM release on Sirius XM Progress channel 127 and check out the  HuffPost Gay Voices story on our launch and a Politico story all about us.
