Esteemed journalist Olivier Knox has been named SiriusXM’s Chief Washington Correspondent. Knox will cover the day’s top news stories and provide analysis for all of SiriusXM’s political channels starting Monday, April 16. In the coming months Knox will also host his own live weeknight show on the P.O.T.U.S. channel.

“I’m thrilled to be joining the team at SiriusXM,” said Knox. “I’ve loved hosting a show on SiriusXM these last few years, bringing its deeply engaged audience in-depth conversations with newsmakers and experts. I look forward to building on that foundation in the months and years to come.”

A veteran journalist who has written about U.S. politics and foreign policy for more than two decades, Knox has covered six presidential campaigns and has deep knowledge of the inner-workings of Capitol Hill and the White House.

In his new role as SiriusXM’s Chief Washington Correspondent, Knox will provide commentary for all of SiriusXM’s political channels, including the non-partisan SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S. (124), the conservative Patriot (125), and the left-minded Progress (127). Knox will also host an upcoming weeknight show on P.O.T.U.S. that will include interviews with top politicians and world leaders, feature Knox’s breakdown of current events, as well as answer listeners’ questions about the non-stop news cycle.

In July, he will be appointed President of the White House Correspondents’ Association, for which he currently serves as Vice President. Knox joins SiriusXM from Yahoo! News, where he was Chief Washington Correspondent, and he previously covered U.S. politics for 15 years at Agence France-Presse (AFP). For more than three years he also hosted a weekly political roundtable show, Yahoo!
