Joe Madison "The Black Eagle" Signs New Multi-Year Deal with SiriusXM

SiriusXM announced today that veteran broadcaster Joe Madison has signed a new multi-year deal to continue hosting Joe Madison The Black Eagle exclusively on SiriusXM. The program airs weekdays from 6:00-10:00 a.m. ET on Urban View channel 126 and is also available on the SXM App.

In addition to being a member of the National Radio Hall of Fame, Madison is a civil rights activist, former national political director of the NAACP, and author. He regularly uses his SiriusXM program to raise the voices of oppressed people and to challenge himself and his listeners to do something about injustices in the world.

Under the new agreement, Madison will continue to discuss the news of the day from his Washington, D.C., studio. His program is a must-stop destination for top politicians, newsmakers and experts who help further the national debate on topics including race relations, politics, culture, and much more. Some of his recent guests include Vice President Kamala Harris, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senator Cory Booker, and House Majority Whip James Clyburn.

“Joe’s legacy of work speaks for itself,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer. “Joe is a leader and a motivator who inspires his audience to raise their voices and get involved. I’m thrilled that Urban View listeners will continue to start their day with Joe for many more years.”

Within the last year alone, Madison has launched two civil rights campaigns that made national headlines. In late 2021 he began a 74-day hunger strike to raise awareness about passing new voting rights legislation. Earlier this year, after a 4-year campaign on his SiriusXM show, Madison was credited by several politicians for his tireless work that helped result in the nation’s first federal anti-lynching law. At the congressional bill signing, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi specifically thanked Madison for his championing of the Emmett Till Antilynching Act, and he was also a guest of the White House when President Biden signed the bill into law.
