So, Andy Cohen has hit the big league?! No longer exclusively Mr. Late Night, the Watch What Happens Live host is launching ‘Radio Andy,’ his own SiriusXM station, and joining him will be a powerful collection of celebrity guests, such as Madonna! Hopefully she won’t get stranded outside the door looking for security… #SonjaMorganILLBProblems
Radio Andy launches September 14th, and will provide a platform for several pop culture-centered shows. Andy will host two solo shows, Andy Cohen Live and Deep & Shallow with Andy Cohen. (Basically they’re both extensions of WWHL with presumably less booze and less ridiculous games and pranks.)

SiriusXM’s president dubbed the network “the ultimate extension of Andy Cohen’s vast pop culture sensibility that spans beyond celebrities, TV, music, art and much more.”
During the two-hour Andy Cohen Live, Andy, aided by celebrity guests, will dish on his obsessions and occasionally include juicy tidbits on news and entertainment gossip. The premiere episode will feature Carole Burnett!
In Andy’s second show, Deep & Shallow with Andy Cohen, an off-shoot of his second book, he’ll interview celebs and other entertainment figures (I noticed no Housewives have made the list!). The first months’ guest list boasts an impressive list of A-listers, such as, “Madonna, Connie Britton, Nile Rodgers, Christina Hendricks, Reba McEntire, Debra Messing, Laverne Cox, Bill Hader, RuPaul, Judd Apatow and numerous others,” reports the Hollywood Reporter. Dang – exciting stuff. Hopefully it’s not all fluff interviews and it will get to the good stuff!
“SiriusXM has given me the ultimate in uncensored creative freedom: a 24/7 channel to do whatever I want with whomever I choose,” gushed Andy. “I’ve spent the last few months putting together an amazing lineup of creative and talented personalities with more to come.”
Meaning, in addition to Andy, some of his favorite WWHL regulars have scored their own shows. Lance Bass is hosting Dirty Pop with Lance Bass. The Housewives pal will be joined by a series of his celebrity friends to dish on gossip, pop culture, and music. Lisa Vanderpump will surely be making a fabulous appearance!
Fashion Queens host Bevy Smith will preside over Bevelations. Bevy will be live each day to provide straight talk about pop culture, women’s issues, dating, sex, and fashion. Bevelations promises to “Forget the status quo, polite conversations and formalities” to focus on what “listeners really want to hear about.”
Finally, Andy’s friend and fellow Housewives observer, comedian, Sandra Bernhard will be live as the host of Sandyland. Promising to be “entertaining, uncensored and unpredictable” Sandra will give her off-the-cuff hilarious opinions and insights on everything from politics, religion, “American oddities,” the arts, entertainment, and more. Joining Sandra for the sharp and witty discussions will be “celebrity friends, including musicians, sports figures, designers and other special guests.”
