NEW YORK, May 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) today announced that Bravo impresario Andy Cohen will celebrate the launch/publication of his new memoir MOST TALKATIVE: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture with a live on-air 80s prom-themed party hosted by Mark Consuelos at SiriusXM studios in New York City.
Voted "Most Talkative" in 1986 by his high school classmates, Cohen's moniker has stayed with him and guided him to where he is now. SiriusXM's "Andy Cohen is Most Talkative" special will air live on Tuesday, May 22 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm ET on SiriusXM Book Radio ch. 80. Encore presentations will air on May 23 at 9:30 pm on SiriusXM Book Radio, on May 24 at 10:00 am and 11:30 am and May 26 at 8:00 am and 9:30 am on SiriusXM Stars ch. 107, and on May 26 at 5:00 pm, May 27 at 9:00 pm and May 28 at 9:00 am on SiriusXM OutQ ch. 108 (all times ET).
In front of an intimate, exclusive audience of SiriusXM listeners, Cohen will share his personal story—from his childhood in St. Louis idolizing Farrah Fawcett and Susan Lucci to coming out of the closet in college to working as an intern and then producer for CBS to his rise in the television industry to Bravo's Executive Vice President of Development and Talent and host of "Watch What Happens Live."
"Andy Cohen is a force of nature whose larger than life personality and spot-on pop culture radar has transformed the television landscape and the lives of viewers who are addicted to his Bravo lineup," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM Radio. "What better way to celebrate Andy's colorful life and career than to have him in studio taking calls from our listeners and sharing stories with millions of fans across the country."
"Watch What Happens Live" is Bravo's late night, interactive talk show that features guests from the world of entertainment, politics, and pop culture. Hosted by Andy Cohen, the series includes lively debates on everything from fashion, the latest on everyone's favorite "Bravolebrities," and what celebrity is making headlines that week. Past guests who have joined Cohen in the Bravo Clubhouse include Sarah Jessica Parker, Tina Fey, Iman, Liam Neeson, Kelly Ripa, Jimmy Fallon, Anderson Cooper, Molly Shannon, Matthew Broderick and Lance Bass.
MOST TALKATIVE: Stories from the Front Line of Pop Culture (Henry Holt & Co.) is filled with countless stories about Cohen's obsession with pop culture and television from an early age and his career in television, including hilarious behind-the-scenes antics and mishaps. He shares what it takes to have a career in television and the life of a news producer, cutting his teeth as he did on breaking news stories in the 1990s. Cohen also opens up about being gay and the tremendous fears he had about his sexuality before telling his family and friends.
