Wharton has launched a new morning radio show, "Wharton Business Daily," that is focused on current news and trends in the business world.
The show, which debuted Nov. 4 on SiriusXM's business channel, features interviews between professors and prominent business leaders on a range of topics, from government policy changes to consumer trends. It is hosted by Dan Loney, who has over 25 years of experience in broadcasting at The Wall Street Journal Radio Network, ABC Radio, and ESPN Radio, according to Wharton News.
"What makes Wharton Business Daily so unique is the way we offer listeners … serious macro-economic topics like healthcare and trade wars, while also airing show segments that reflect everyday pocketbook issues," Loney told Wharton News.
The first show featured Wharton Dean Geoffrey Garrett, who discussed US-China trade negotiations, and professor Robert Meyer who analyzed the business and risk management impacts of wildfires in California, according to the show’s website.
In the second hour of the two-hour program, Facebook Head of External Affairs Robert Traynham unpacked how Facebook is making changes to protect against false information ahead of the 2020 presidential elections, and former AOL CEO Steve Case discussed the opportunity for entrepreneurship outside of Silicon Valley.
Other guests on the radio show will include the founding CEO of Netflix Marc Randolph and Papa John’s Chairman of the Board and 1996 Wharton graduate Jeff Smith, according to Wharton News.
The show is the latest endeavor in the partnership between The Wharton School and Sirius XM Radio, and airs on SiriusXM Channel 132, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on weekdays.
