Al Franken Lands Weekly Talk Show on SiriusXM

Ousted Democratic senator Al Franken has a new show coming to SiriusXM on Sept. 28.

"I'm excited to be back on SiriusXM, which carried my Air America show back in the day," Franken said in a statement Wednesday. "The Al Franken Show" weekly radio show will air on SiriusXM Progress Channel 127.

"Listeners can expect a mix of guests from my comedian friends like Chris Rock, to my political pals like former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, to policy experts on the issues in play in 2020," the host and namesake continued. "When I'm interviewing Harry or former Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, I'll be the funny one. When I interview Rock or Patton Oswalt, I'll be the one who served eight-and-a-half years in the Senate," he joked.

Rock's involvement tracks, as TheWrap reported exclusively in July that Franken worked with his former "Saturday Night Live" colleague to help punch up a new script that Rock wrote.
