Sirius XM Radio launching rebranded progressive talk channel

Satellite radio company Sirius XM Radio Inc. is launching a rebranded political talk channel for left-leaning audiences next week called "SiriusXM Progress."

The channel, formerly known as "SiriusXM Left," will debut Monday and feature an afternoon call-in show hosted by Michelangelo Signorile, an editor at large for Huffington Post Gay Voices. 

Media Matters senior fellow Ari Rabin-Havt will host a new morning show, and longtime civil rights activist Mark Thompson will continue his early evening show "Make It Plain."
