SiriusXM CEO Jennifer Witz Talks to Doctor Radio for a Special Women’s History Month Interview

Witz Shares Her Advice for Young Women and the Importance of Prioritizing Mental Health

March 28, 2024

Jennifer Witz, the Chief Executive Officer of SiriusXM, sat down with Dr. Caren F. Behar to discuss mental health and wellness during a new episode of “Women’s Health” on SiriusXM’s Doctor Radio channel. Listen to their full conversation on the SiriusXM app now, as well as rebroadcasts of it on Doctor Radio on the app and radios throughout the week.

During the interview, Witz provided advice to young women, talked about why we need to place more efforts into our own personal mental health, and discussed how Doctor Radio and its sister channel – Mental Health Radio – have helped so many people who don’t have easy access to physicians.

“It’s really important to me that we continue to develop more content around mental health and wellness in general,” Witz said. “Whether it’s the talk content that we offer and advice, or it’s music because we also have a number of channels on SiriusXM or stations on Pandora that really help with sleep, relaxing, and all kinds of workout channels that are really rising in popularity.”

Additionally, the SiriusXM CEO also reflected on starting at the audio entertainment company in 2002 before being named CEO in 2021.

“It was really amazing to see the passion to create something new,” Witz said of SiriusXM in 2002. “Obviously it was music and a lot of other audio content, but something that was just a real, fresh take on premium radio, and a new technology that was largely unproven even at the time. And it was kind of nice to be associated with something that was a real technology that wasn’t the internet – because back then everything was about the internet.”
