    Celebrating Black History Month

    SIRIUSXM and PANDORA have launched a collection of limited-run channels and special events for BLACK HISTORY MONTH. It will feature artists and influencers from sports to the arts who've aided in making a difference for African Americans and communities.

    SIRIUSXM SVP/Brand-Consumer Marketing KIMBERLY K. WILSON said, “This BLACK HISTORY MONTH, SIRIUSXM and PANDORA are amplifying the Black experience and the impact of Black artists, creators, our hosts, and talent have had on pop culture through our curated cross-platform content. The Power of Black Culture has influenced music of all genres, sports, comedy, and talk. We’re thrilled to honor Black voices across the diaspora and celebrate their brilliance.”

    VP/Urban Music Programming DION SUMMERS added, “While we run channels dedicated to amplifying Black voices and highlighting the Black experience year-round, our BLACK HISTORY MONTH programming aims to honor the generations of Black Americans who have helped shape music as we know it today. From Jazz and Blues to Hip-Hop and R&B, the influence of Black musicians is present throughout all aspects of American culture, and we’re excited to offer our SIRIUSXM and PANDORA listeners a platform to experience and listen to Black artists’ cultural pride expressed through their music.”
