SiriusXM To Launch The Outfield On SiriusXM OutQ

SIRIUS XM logo

The live call-in show will be hosted by sports broadcaster Eddie Robinson and will feature interviews with LGBT athletes and LGBT allies as they discuss sports, fitness, and the advancement of openly gay athletes competing in sports at all levels. 

The Outfield will be a place where sports fans, regardless of sexual orientation, will be encouraged to share their perspectives on events and issues happening on and off the field.  Guests for the debut program include: Sheryl Swoopes , the head coach of the women's basketball team of Loyola University Chicago, three-time Olympic Gold Medalist and three-time WNBA MVP; Dakota Cochrane , professional MMA fighter; and Howard Bragman , noted public relations expert credited with advising numerous celebrities and athletes on "coming out," including All-American college football star Michael Sam, who is widely considered a prospect to become the first openly-gay player in the NFL.  Also joining will be Cyd Zeigler , editor and co-founder of Outsports.com, and Hudson Taylor , the Founder and Executive Director of Athlete Ally. In the coming weeks, guests will include Ciaran O'Lionaird, Summer Olympian and track star, among others.

Robinson's show will be on the leading edge of a new, inclusive era in sports journalism. A graduate of Prairie View A&M University, Eddie Robinson is a member of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalist Association and has a career in both radio and television sports and news, most recently with the SiriusXM SportsZone channel. 

"We've reached a time where we need to tell stories of gay athletes beyond homophobia in the locker room," said Robinson.  "This program will proudly carry the torch of reporting positive stories of inclusion and advancement for gay athletes in sports on recreational, collegiate, and professional levels."
