The new channel will debut October 5, with Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer serving as the first voice to sound on the outlet. Shepard Smith will contribute an hour at 6 p.m. on the first day. Other Fox News staffers will replace the two as the service continues after its launch.

The channel will be supervised by Jay Wallace, senior vice president of news for Fox News Channel. The outlet will feature constantly-updated segments on major news events, business, sports and entertainment, along with reports   reports on what topics, personalities and memes are trending on major social media platforms.

“Our goal is to continuously deliver original breaking news product to our viewers. This up-to-the-minute national breaking news channel, combined with SiriusXM’s reach, is a natural partnership and extension for the Fox News brand,” said Roger Ailes, chairman and chief executive of Fox News Channel, in a statement.

“We’re thrilled to collaborate with Fox News to deliver this unique experience to SiriusXM subscribers around the country,” said Scott Greenstein, president and chief content officer of SiriusXM.

The two companies already broadcast three dedicated satellite radio channels: Fox News Channel, an audio simulcast of the able news network; an audio simulcast of Fox Business Network; and Fox News Talk, which offers opinion programming from Fox News personalities such as Brian Kilmeade, Alan Colmes, John Gibson and Tom Sullivan.
