New York, NY (September 10, 2019)—SiriusXM and Pandora will officially open SiriusXM Hollywood, the company's new Hollywood studio complex, on October 7 with network stalwart Howard Stern, marking his first radio broadcast from outside New York in 15 years, and his first from Los Angeles in almost 20 years.
Located in the heart of the Hollywood Media District at 953 N. Sycamore Ave., SiriusXM/Pandora Hollywood has, according to a company statement, been built from the ground up to reflect the company's commitment to the West Coast artist community and audience. An article in the Los Angeles Times has previously reported that production facilities occupy 26,000 sq. ft. on the eighth floor of the building.
SiriusXM Hollywood's official October 7 launch with Stern will be preceded by four weeks of special broadcasts and performances across many SiriusXM channels from the new Hollywood studio complex and from venues around Los Angeles.
Dave Matthews is scheduled to perform an exclusive set from SiriusXM Hollywood's ground-floor performance studio, The Garage, for his SiriusXM channel, Dave Matthews Radio, that will air September 12.
Los Angeles native and emerging record-setting artist Billie Eilish will perform an exclusive concert for SiriusXM and Pandora listeners at the Troubadour on September 18.
"The launch of our new SiriusXM/Pandora Hollywood complex is a major step forward in creating the best coast to coast content for our listeners," said Scott Greenstein, president and chief content officer, SiriusXM. "This world class studio and performance space in the heart of the entertainment capital of the world was a priority for us.
