Walters to host Sirius call-in show

Radio show to begin airing on Sept. 17

Barbara Walters has signed on to host “Barbara Live,” a live weekly call-in show on Sirius Satellite Radio from 6 to 7 p.m. starting Sept. 17.

“The View” exec producer Bill Geddie will be a regular on the show, which will air on Sirius’s Stars 102 channel. Sirius has been testing the waters for the program with four specials recently hosted by Walters.

Sirius negotiated the deal with reps for Walters’ production company Barwall, which co-produces “The View” with ABC. Sirius entertainment and sports prexy Scott Greenstein noted that the new show “deepens Barbara’s involvement at Sirius.”

Since January, Sirius has also aired a weekly “best of” anthology show with a selection of famous Walters interviews. The network has access to a large back catalog of her past work for ABC.
