More Magazine Launches “More Time” On XM Radio
Magazine Brings its Smart Talk for Smart Women Over 40 to XM’s “Take Five” Channel with Host Katherine Lanpher
New York and Washington, D.C., January 4, 2007 – More, named 2006 Magazine of the Year by Advertising Age, will launch “More Time,” an hour-long weekly talk radio show, on XM, the nation’s leading satellite radio service with more than seven million subscribers, it was announced today by the two companies. Premiering January 16 on XM’s “Take Five” channel, “More Time” will reflect the magazine’s mission to celebrate the lifestyles of 40+ women with coverage of real women, health, fashion, beauty, travel, entertainment and more.
Radio personality Katherine Lanpher will serve as host of “More Time.” An award-winning journalist and author of Leap Days: Chronicles of a Midlife Move, Lanpher previously served as co-host of “The Al Franken Show” on Air America Radio.
“Our goal at More is to keep dreaming up ways to connect with our readers,” explained Peggy Northrop, editor-in-chief of More. “Midlife women love to talk to each other—about what’s happening to our bodies, what we want to do with the rest of our lives, whether we can really wear miniskirts again. Those conversations make perfect material for broadcast. More Time will let you listen in as authors, readers, editors and women of note muse on every subject — and you’ll be able to call in and add your own voice.”
“More Time” will air on XM’s “Take Five” channel (XM 155), which features lifestyle talk programming targeted toward women. More joins Ellen DeGeneres, Tyra Banks, Good Morning America and other prominent personalities and brands on XM’s “Take Five.”
The show will debut on Tuesday, January 16 at 4 p.m. ET on XM 155. New episodes of “More Time” will premiere Tuesdays on XM 155 with additional encores airing throughout the week. Complete programming information is available online at http://www.xmradio.com.
Tiffany Hanssen has been named executive producer of “More Time” along with Mimi Tompkins as the show’s producer. Hanssen has spent nearly 20 years in the radio broadcast industry and is currently co-owner of Elm Productions. Tompkins has worked extensively in radio, television and print, notably as a producer and reporter for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Paris and New York.
More plans to expand its XM presence in spring 2007 with additional More-branded short-form content that will air on XM 155.
