Kevin Hart and SiriusXM have announced a multi-year agreement in which the famed comedian will continue to create content through his entertainment firm Hartbeat, which will exclusively premiere on Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud Radio (ch. 96).
As part of the deal, the 43-year-old will continue to host his acclaimed podcast, Gold Minds with Kevin Hart, which will premiere exclusively on SiriusXM and will feature a slew of celebrity guests including Ryan Coogler, Jason Bateman, Neil Burger, Anderson Cooper, Method Man, Stephen A. Smith, Lena Waithe, and others for the upcoming season.
Hartbeat will also develop a variety of original, talent-focused shows, such as Love Thang with Punkie Johnson and One Song with Diallo and LUXXURY, hosted by Diallo Riddle and Blake “LUXXURY” Robin. Also, a previously unreleased stand-up album by the late comedian Bernie Mac will be accessible only on the channel.
Speaking about the continuation of his partnership with SiriusXM, Hart stated:
“I am so excited to be able to continue working with my SiriusXM family and grow our audience through our existing IP as well as the expansion of Gold Minds and the additions of Punkie, Diallo, and Blake.”
He went on, “SiriusXM has been a valued relationship of mine and Hartbeat’s for some time and the fact that we were able to launch Gold Minds and now expand the program to include the brightest, boldest, and most impactful voices of our time blows my mind.”
CEO of Hartbeat, Thai Randolph, also said: “As we advance our mission to keep the world laughing together, Hartbeat is committed to growing our audio reach through high-impact entertainment that lives at the nexus of comedy and culture. We are proud to expand our collaboration with SiriusXM and further develop our diverse library of fresh, funny, and dynamic audio content.”
SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer, Scott Greenstein, also added:
“Over the last five years, Kevin has become a cornerstone of SiriusXM’s comedy programming, and we’re absolutely thrilled to deepen our relationship with Kevin and the whole Hartbeat team. As they’ve proven time and again, they have their finger on the pulse of the new, exciting, diverse voices in comedy, and our audience has clearly responded. We’re excited to remain Kevin’s audio home as he continues to expand his comedy brand and listenership.”
