There is a free coronavirus radio channel featuring NYU doctors on SiriusXM – Orange County Register


The SiriusXM satellite radio network and New York University’s Langone Health Medical Center have teamed up to create a new 24-hour channel on the novel coronavirus, which on Wednesday was declared an official global pandemic.

The station, which launched Friday and is available for free, is located at channel 121 on SiriusXM. It is also available on the SiriusXM app and on SiriusXM.com.

Satellite subscribers have access to the channel, but due to the health crisis it is also accessible to non-subscribers, who can access it on an inactive SiriusXM receiver like many people have in their cars.

The 24/7 channel incorporates some of SiriusXM’s physician radio programming on channel 110. It features physicians from different specialties, including infectious diseases, from Langone Health staff.

In addition, the network and the medical center have set up a coronavirus hotline at 877-40COVID (877-402-6843) where callers can get answers to frequently asked questions about the disease also known as Covid. -19. Callers can also record questions that Doctor Radio could answer on their weekly “Coronavirus: What You Need To Know Now” show.
