PHILADELPHIA, October 31, 2019 — The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania announced the launch of Wharton Business Daily, a dynamic new morning show produced at the Wharton School and airing on SiriusXM Channel 132. The show’s debut on Monday, November 4 at 10 am ET will feature a roster of top guests that includes Wharton School Dean Geoff Garrett, former AOL CEO Steve Case and Head of External Affairs for Facebook Robert Traynham. Wharton Business Daily will air live on SiriusXM’s business channel, Monday through Friday, 10 am to 12 noon ET, led by veteran radio host Dan Loney.
The show will focus on both topical news stories and emerging trends with an emphasis on how these issues impact both consumers and the business world. Each day, Wharton Business Daily will air interviews with Wharton professors and distinguished business leaders, all of whom will provide insights on government policy changes, market shifts, innovation, consumer trends and a range of other topics that draw from the School’s unique and deep expertise across its ten academic areas.
Wharton Business Daily anchor Dan Loney brings more than 25 years of broadcast experience to the show, formerly serving stints with The Wall Street Journal Radio Network, ABC Radio, ESPN Radio and as a play-by-play baseball commentator. “What makes Wharton Business Daily so unique is the way we offer listeners both serious macro-economic topics like healthcare and trade wars while also airing show segments that reflect everyday pocketbook issues,” said Loney. “Our goal is to inform, surprise, entertain and educate, sometimes all at once.”
Besides Dean Garrett, Loney will be joined by several Wharton professors during Wharton Business Daily’s debut week, including consumer identity expert Americus Reed (as part of a recurring “Marketing Stories of the Week” segment) and Affordable Care Act co-author Ezekiel Emanuel. Other upcoming scheduled guests include co-founder and founding CEO of Netflix, Marc Randolph and Wharton undergraduate alumnus and Papa John’s Chairman of the Board Jeff Smith.
Wharton Business Daily is the latest in a series of programming collaborations between SiriusXM and the Wharton School, spanning half a decade. Show segments will originate from both of Wharton’s campuses, in Philadelphia and San Francisco. Non-subscribers can access free listening trials at www.siriusxm.com.
