The coronavirus has dealt a crippling blow to the entertainment industry — theaters remain shuttered, ticket sales have halted, and all major events are postponed. With so many unknowns, it’s hard to imagine where and when large-scale gatherings will return, including sporting events, concert performances, and Broadway theaters. To address some of these uncertainties, SiriusXM Business Radio (Ch. 132) host Dan Loney sat down with key players to see how they plan to adapt and evolve.

Seeking answers, Loney interviewed top executives of record labels, awards shows, television networks, and theaters, plus stars like comedian Nikki Glaser and Broadway’s Michael Urie about getting back to work in the midst of what’s now considered the new normal. The Business of Entertainment During a Pandemic: A SiriusXM Town Hall on Wharton Business Daily will replay throughout Memorial Day weekend and is available On Demand.
