Transport Topics is adding a national radio show to the SiriusXM weekly lineup on the Road Dog Trucking channel.
Each Saturday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT, Transport Topics Radio will offer a weekly news roundtable show that spotlights the publication’s coverage of the trucking industry. Road Dog Trucking is found on SiriusXM channel 146. It will be rebroadcast on Sundays from 12-2 p.m. EDT after its original airing
Transport Topics Radio will bring listeners up-to-date news from government, business, logistics and other sectors of the industry. Every Saturday, award-winning Transport Topics journalists and newsmakers will go beyond the headlines and delve deeper into issues that impact the trucking community.
Transport Topics Associate News Editor for Print/Multimedia and longtime broadcaster Dan Ronan will be the regular host of Transport Topics Radio. He will be joined regularly by other members of the editorial team, including Executive Editor Joe Howard, Managing Editor Lorrie Grant and Managing Editor, Features, Seth Clevenger. Transport Topics’ team of reporters will also make regular appearances.
For almost two years, Ronan has been a familiar voice on SiriusXM, as the regular backup host on Road Dog Trucking News with Mark Willis and Road Dog Live with KC Phillips. Ronan will continue in these roles while adding duties with Transport Topics Radio.
“SiriusXM’s Road Dog Trucking is the go-to satellite radio channel for truck drivers, whether they are longhaul drivers going coast-to-coast or on a regional trip,” Transport Topics Publisher Sue Hensley said. “This is a great opportunity to partner with the best broadcasters in the business to bring our Transport Topics journalism to a different medium and using radio to give the industry a weekly example of the type of high-quality reporting we do every day.”
Ronan said, “As a journalist for more than 40 years, this is a very exciting opportunity. We have a very deep bench of journalists, and I look forward to speaking with my colleagues and newsmakers every Saturday to bring the most important stories to everyone in the trucking industry.”
