Stocks in this article: SIRI

NEW YORK, Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) announced today that SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S. host/stand-up comedian Pete Dominick will host " Pete Dominick's Electoral College Tour," a series of special broadcasts and student events live from the sites of the first two presidential debates—the University of Denver and Hofstra University—as well as the University of Virginia.

" Pete Dominick's Electoral College Tour" broadcasts will air live before each of the three presidential debates, serving as a lead-in to these pivotal events marking the last weeks of the 2012 race to the White House. 

At each campus location, Dominick will host a special one-hour forum with students and faculty, before the presidential debate and live from 8:00 – 9:00 pm ET, to talk about the issues that matter most to them in this election. Dominick will also be doing his daily show Stand Up! with Pete Dominick on campus from 3:00 – 6:00 pm ET. Both shows will air live on SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S. channel 124.

"Every day I host a respectful and informative discussion with the best policy experts available while encouraging listeners to think for themselves," said Pete Dominick. "I look forward to hearing directly from students about what issues and candidates—including those who won't be on stage debating—inspired them this political season, and to sharing their perspective with SiriusXM listeners across the country."

"Pete is a rarity in talk radio: an independent voice who uses experts, ideas and humor to flesh out the issues affecting all of us today," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. "By bringing his microphone to college campuses to engage and interact with American students on SiriusXM, he's giving this generation of voters the chance to be heard across the nation."

" Pete Dominick's Electoral College Tour" kicks off on October 3 at the University of Denver—host of the first debate in the swing state of Colorado—as part of the school's DebateFest event during which 5000 students, faculty and local community members are invited to campus to participate in events celebrating the election and a screening of the debate itself. 

The tour's next stop will be October 16 at Hofstra University, host of the second debate. Dominick will broadcast Stand Up! from "Issue Alley," an outdoor area where students can participate in a variety of interactive and informational activities related to issues surrounding the election. That night's live student town hall event will take place at Hofstra USA, where hundreds of students will gather for the broadcast and evening festivities as part of a campus debate watch party.

The final stop of " Pete Dominick's Electoral College Tour" will be at the University of Virginia in cooperation with the school's non-partisan Center for Politics on October 22, the day of the final presidential debate. Dominick will host the pre-debate student town hall from the West Oval Room in The Rotunda—designed by Thomas Jefferson as the architectural and academic heart of his University— where he will speak with students about voting in this swing state and how this election will affect them. 

SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S.—the unfiltered, unbiased 24/7 channel that covers the "Politics of the United States" from every perspective—tells the story of American politics daily with unbiased news programs, live coverage and unfiltered audio of major political events from inside and outside the Beltway.

" Pete Dominick's Electoral College Tour" will be available on SiriusXM On Demand after it airs on SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S. to subscribers listening via the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for smartphones and other mobile devices, or online at Visit for more information.
