Stand Up! With Pete Dominick


Beginning Tomorrow, “Stand Up! with Pete Dominick” will air live weekdays from 6 – 9 am ET, replaying from 9 am – 12 pm ET, on Indie, SiriusXM Ch. 104.

Longtime SiriusXM host, stand-up comic, CNN contributor and public speaker combines humor, independence and fearless curiosity to create new daily morning drive show. “Stand Up! With Pete Dominick” challenges listeners to make the most of their world. Inspired by his fascination with politics, public policy and social issues, Dominick approaches everything with his razor-sharp wit and tongue, challenging listeners to take a stand and keep an open mind. Dominick will explore everything from foreign policy and economics to parenting and education, as well as the day’s top stories, with expert guests and listeners nationwide.

Inspired by his fascination with politics, public policy and social issues, Dominick approaches everything with his razor sharp wit and tongue, challenging listeners to take a stand and keep an open mind. Dominick will explore everything from foreign policy and economics to parenting and education, as well as the day’s top stories, with expert guests and listeners nationwide. Dominick will interview a wide range of guests—from policymakers to authors to celebrities to filmmakers to veterans and beyond—inviting them to tell their stories without agendas, scripts, or time limits

“I don’t pretend to have all the answers. I’m proud to say I learn from my listeners instead of lecturing at them,” said Pete Dominick. “My perspective as a stand-up comic and father of two girls is why I relate to and have a truly authentic connection with my listeners from all backgrounds. I’ll leave celebrity gossip and voyeurism to others while I explore more important issues with my listeners and the experts that can speak to them best.”

“Pete is a great entertainer and fearless thinker, unwilling to accept conventional wisdom and challenging people to think for themselves,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. “There’s nothing else like this, and we look forward to giving our national audience a place to gather for smart, motivational and entertaining conversation where no idea is off limits.”

Dominick joined SiriusXM in August 2006 as a host on Raw Dog Comedy. He launched Stand Up! on non-partisan political talk channel SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S. in February 2008, and the show quickly became a can’t-miss stop for experts and newsmakers. Dominick also made news himself in September 2010: his interview with then-CNN host Rick Sanchez sparked a controversy when Sanchez made comments viewed as anti-Semitic that led to his being fired. For the last six years, Dominick has also had the sought-after job of opening for Stephen Colbert on “The Colbert Report,” a job he’ll leave to focus on his new SiriusXM radio show.

SiriusXM’s Indie channel, formerly SiriusXM Stars Too, features daily shows hosted by Dominick, Covino & Rich and Jay Thomas, plus shows from Rotten Tomatoes, BuzzFeed, Neil Strauss and others.

Stand Up! with Pete Dominick will be available on SiriusXM On Demand for subscribers listening via the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for smartphones and other mobile devices or online at siriusxm.com.

To talk with him after this latest milestone, at Cameron Indoor, in front of a live studio audience will be fun.”

2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Tony Stewart to Present Annual ‘Stewie Awards’ Live on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Dec. 1

Tony Stewart on Sirius XM Radio

Sirius XM Radio announced today that 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series ChampionTony Stewart will host the fifth annual ‘Stewie Awards’ show on Thursday, December 1, live from Las Vegas on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

The ‘Stewies,’ which features Stewart’s entertaining and irreverent take on the best, boldest and funniest moments from the 2011 NASCARseason, will be awarded during a live broadcast hosted by Stewart and Matt Yocum from Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on Thursday, December 1 (9:30 pm ET / 6:30 pm PT).  The live broadcast will air nationwide on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, channel 90 on Sirius and XM Premier (formerly known as “The Best of Sirius”).  The broadcast will be open to the public for fans in Las Vegas.

Stewart won his third NASCAR Sprint Cup Series title after a remarkable postseason run that saw him win five of the 10 races in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.  His down-to-the-wire battle with Carl Edwards created one of the most exciting finishes in NASCAR history, as Stewart overcame early-race troubles and held off Edwards to win the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway and claim the crown.  In just his third year as a driver/owner with Stewart-Haas Racing, Stewart becomes the first driver/owner to win a championship since Alan Kulwicki did it in 1992.  He was the last driver to win the championship before Jimmie Johnson went on his historic five year title run.

The ‘Stewie Awards’ event will feature live interviews with several of Stewart’s competitors in this year’s Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, plus other special guests.

“Hosting the ‘Stewies’ is always one of the highlights of Champions Week for me and this year’s show will be incredibly special,” said Stewart.  “This has been an amazing season for me and the team and it’ll be great to share the excitement of Champions Week with the fans in Las Vegasand those listening around the country on SiriusXM.”

Fans can vote for the ‘Stewie Award’ winners online at www.siriusxm.com/stewieawards.

The 2011 ‘Stewies’ nominees are:

Best Original Drama — For the year’s most dramatic moment or sequence.

  • Clint Bowyer and Kevin Harvick battle Jeff Gordon and Mark Martin to end of Aaron’s 499 at Talladega only to be bested by Jimmie Johnson, who tied a record for slimmest margin of victory at .002 secs thanks to a late push by Dale Earnhardt Jr.
  • Brad Keselowski drives to victory in the Good Sam RV Insurance 500 at Pocono with a broken ankle. During a red flag for rain, Kez had fluid drained from his ankle, which had swollen to the size of a softball.
  • Kyle Busch wins 18 combined series races and passes Mark Martin on all-time NASCAR Nationwide Series win list, yet makes headlines for a series of “less attractive” reasons.

  • On the day after his 20th birthday, Trevor Bayne wins Daytona 500 in his second NASCAR Sprint Cup Series start.

  • After winning the IRWIN Tools Night Race at Bristol, Brad Keselowski celebrates in Victory Lane with help from his sponsor.

  • Thinking Greg Biffle was racing dirty in the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at the Glen, Boris Said requests a “meeting” with “The Biff” after the race.  In the ensuing encounter, Biffle takes a swing at Said and Said answers back with verbal TKO.
  • Battling teammate Carl Edwards, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. blows an engine on last lap of US Cellular 250 at Iowa.  The combination of oil on the track and blinding smoke on Edwards’ windshield causes Carl to slam into Stenhouse and push him to win.

  • After an on-track battle at the Showtime Southern 500 at Darlington, Kevin Harvick throws a punch at Kyle Busch on pit road.  Busch rams Harvick’s car into pit road wall and fight breaks out between the two race teams.
  • Steve Wallace spins Patrick Carpentier during NAPA Auto Parts 200 at Montreal to prematurely end the final race of Carpentier’s career.  Carpentier’s crew chief, Jerry Baxter, reaches into car to pull Wallace’s hair.  Wallace states later, “Only girls pull hair.”
  • After multiple incidents, Ryan Newman and Juan Pablo Montoya visit the NASCAR hauler.  It is rumored Newman throws a punch during the meeting but “Rocket Man” will only say, “What happens in the trailer stays in the trailer.”
  • Nearing the checkered flag in the Good Sam Club 500 at Talladega, Jeff Gordon gets dumped by his tandem draft partner, Trevor Bayne, for another Ford driver.  Gordon goes from being a contender to win to finishing 27th, 12 spots behind Bayne.
