It may seem like the 2020 Emmy Awards nominees were just announced, but the big weekend is already just days away. To revisit this year’s nominees in preparation for the main (virtual) event, we’re launching Awards Show Radio, a special pop-up channel highlighting interviews with nominees beginning on September 18 at 6 am ET.
Awards Show Radio, sponsored by NBCUniversal’s new streaming service Peacock, will take over a weekend of continuous programming through Sunday, September 20 at 8 pm ET on SiriusXM Stars (Ch. 109), just in time to catch the main event.
Hosted by SiriusXM’s Chief Entertainment Anchor Jess Cagle from The Jess Cagle Show and co-host Julia Cunningham, Awards Show Radio will feature interviews from nominees including Hugh Jackman, Tracee Ellis Ross, Michael Douglas, Rachel Brosnahan, Billy Porter, Sandra Oh, Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, the cast of Schitt’s Creek, the cast of Hollywood, the cast of Dead to Me, and many more. Additionally, Cagle and Cunningham will be taking listeners through each category as they discuss the different nominations, shows, and much more.
To get ready for the channel launch and the Emmy Awards (and celebrate the 72nd Primetime Creative Arts, Emmy Awards, which are currently happening throughout the week) relive our recent Schitt’s Creek Town Hall On Demand now!
