Mike Posner Gets His Own Radio Show
His weekly SIRIUS XM show, The Mike Posner Show, debuts on September 10 on SIRIUS XM's Faction (SIRIUS channel 28/XM channel 52), SIRIUS XM's 100% commercial-free music and action sports lifestyle channel. The show will air Friday nights at 9:00 pm ET. On his SIRIUS XM Faction show, Posner will play the jams he likes and talk about his life as he navigates the best-selling music charts and his newfound popularity.
"It is going to be so fun to document what happens in my life in such a refreshing manner. Plus, I can't wait to show people all the cool music they've been missing," said Posner. "My show is going to have the best playlist ever!"
Posner -- singer, songwriter, producer and recent Duke University graduate -- received critical acclaim when he self-released two mixtapes and signed a record deal with J Records while still in school. The Detroit native received his diploma from Duke as his song, "Cooler Than Me," was rising on the Billboard charts and he was preparing to hit the road with the Warped Tour. The smash single "Cooler Than Me" has sold more than 1.1 million downloads to date and risen to No. 6 on Billboard's Hot 100.
His debut album, 31 Minutes to Takeoff, will be released on August 10. Posner co-wrote and/or co-produced every track on 31 Minutes to Takeoff, which also features collaborations with Benny Blanco (Ke$ha, Katy Perry, 3OH!3), Boyz II Men, Travis Barker and songwriter Teddy Riley.
"When SIRIUS XM first started playing Mike's music a few months ago, we knew we had to do something more to bring this exciting new talent to a national audience," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer of SIRIUS XM. "Already having found a large online audience for his unmistakable and unduplicated sound, SIRIUS XM will bring his unique voice to millions of car radios every single week."
