Earlier this year SiriusXM acquired Team Coco, the Conan O’Brien-led podcast network and digital media business
Available 24/7, Team Coco Radio will be the home to Conan’s unique combination of smart and silly comedy. All day long listeners will hear the biggest interviews and the funniest stand-up moments from Conan’s iconic TBS show, as well as select Team Coco podcasts, including Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend, plus Inside Conan and Conan O’Brien Needs a Fan. Fresh commentary from Conan will also be weaved throughout the programming, as he recalls funny behind-the-scenes stories and other entertaining and insightful anecdotes.
“Finally, a use of satellite technology that in no way benefits mankind,” said Conan O’Brien.
“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 favourite memories and takes listeners into his thought process, truly making Team Coco Radio a treasure trove for anyone who appreciates great comedy.”
Team Coco Radio is also expected to roll out original programs, as well as events hosted by Conan, including musical performances.
In May SiriusXM announced that it had acquired Team Coco. As part of the transaction, Conan entered into a five-year talent agreement with SiriusXM under which he will remain host of his namesake podcast, which continues to be available widely and is produced by Team Coco staff.
Team Coco Radio (channel 106) is available to subscribers nationwide in their car and on the SXM App. The SXM App is available to subscribers on mobile devices and a wide variety of connected platforms in the home including smart speakers, smart TVs and streaming media players. Streaming access is included with all of SiriusXM’s audio trials and most popular plans.
