Default Deepak Chopra to Host Weekly Show on SIRIUS Satellite Radio

Press Release Source: SIRIUS Satellite Radio


Deepak Chopra, World Renowned Mind and Body Expert and Author, to Host Weekly Show on SIRIUS Satellite RadioThursday May 4, 8:00 am ET
'Deepak Chopra's Wellness Radio' will take calls on health, spirituality, relationships and success
Saturday mornings on SIRIUS Stars, channel 102.


SIRIUS Satellite Radio ( announced today that Deepak Chopra, best-selling author and leader in the field of mind and body medicine, will host a live, weekly three hour health and wellness call-in talk show, Saturday mornings on SIRIUS.



Deepak Chopra's Wellness Radio will debut in Summer 2006 exclusively on SIRIUS. Each week Chopra will discuss the areas of health, spirituality, relationships and success. Often putting today's news in the context of mind and body wellness, Chopra will teach, explain, inform, nurture and advise his listeners nationwide. Listeners will be able to call in for personal one-on- one conversations. Deepak Chopra's Wellness Radio will air every Saturday morning on SIRIUS Stars, channel 102.

"With SIRIUS I hope to reach a critical mass of people with a message of self development and personal and social transformation," said Chopra. "I will be focusing on four areas -- success; love, sexuality and relationships; well being; and spirituality. My hope is to develop a more personal relationship with a back and forth communication, something that I haven't been able to do with my books."

"Deepak Chopra's exceptional success as a doctor, author and teacher has touched the lives of millions of people. Deepak is leading the field of mind and body medicine and is changing the way we look at our health," said Scott Greenstein, SIRIUS' President, Entertainment and Sports. "We are excited to add Deepak Chopra's Wellness Radio to our already strong line-up of lifestyle programming."

Deepak Chopra has written over 42 books and released more than 100 audio, video and CD-ROM titles. They have been translated into 35 languages with over 20 million copies sold worldwide. In 1999 Time magazine selected Dr. Chopra as one of the Top 100 Icons and Heroes of the Century, describing him as "the poet prophet of alternative medicine."

His latest book, Peace Is the Way (Harmony Books) won the Quill Awards and The Book of Secrets: Unlocking the Hidden Dimensions of your Life was awarded the Nautilus Award. Some of his NY Times best-sellers include Ageless Body, Timeless Mind; The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success; Grow Younger, Live Longer: 10 Steps to Reverse Aging; and The Path to Love.

In 1995 the Chopra Center for Well Being was established in California, and has since become a leading institution for advancements in melding traditional western medicine and alternative healing practices. Deepak serves as an adjunct professor at the Kellogg School of Management, and regularly mentors corporate and political leaders through his Soul of Leadership workshops. He's the recipient of the Einstein award through Albert Einstein College of Medicine, in collaboration with the American Journal of Psychotherapy, and the recipient of the 2006 Ellis Island Medal of Honor from the National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations. Along with Nobel Peace laureates Oscar Arias, Betty Williams, and others, Chopra is a founding director of the Alliance for the New Humanity. Chopra joined the Gallup Organization as a senior scientist in 2005.

SIRIUS has an extensive commitment to lifestyle programming, featuring related shows on its Martha Stewart Living Radio and LIME Radio channels.

Nice feather in the Sirius cap! I'm surprised this show didn't end up on Lime - but this will give the 'Spiritually-minded' something beyond what they can listen to Lime online. In other words, give them an excuse to go ahead and buy their own Sirius radio now - rather than being stuck to a computer!

Speaking of Lime - what an improvement over Wisdom Radio. I am finding some really compelling stuff to listen to lately! This is coming from someone who really wasn't into all that 'new-agey' stuff!

Clearly this sector is a big WIN for Sirius over XM. THANK YOU SIRIUS!!!

Kind of ironic, Deepak used to be on Oprah quite a few times in the 80's and 90's. Maybe he thought going to XM might be bad karma for him so he chose SIRIUS lol. Of course, SIRIUS probably offered him more $ anyway.

This a great addition to the line up, hopefully Sirius will be able to add more motivational speakers to have one entire channel. People like Zig Ziglar, Brian Tracey, Stephen Schiffman, etc. It would be a great add for some of the sales people that have Sirius.

AGREED!! Not just for salespeople - but for ANYONE who wants to grow through personal development!! If Lime could get more content like this - it would be the icing on the cake. Personally, I would listen to a station like this 24/7. This is probably the one thing that would cause me to switch back to XM - if they came out with this channel.

I remember Howard used to air this one bumper with this guy going on about relaxation. I know a little bit about Chopra but it was more like a medication tape....could that be him? Anyway, Howard was ranting through the whole thing and yelling like a manic. It was really funny. It would be funny if Howard interviewed the guy, too.

I would beg to differ. I've been to two John Edwards seminars - he's no fraud.

And you absolutely have the right to differ!! Still sounds like a list of "great frauds" to me. I'll remain majorly skeptical until I personally see some proof.

Shouldn't this type of show be airing on lime? Doesn't sound like a good fit alongside the personalities on SIRIUS Stars.

BTW, Richard Simmons should go there too, IMHO.

about a psychic chn or shows.


All I can say us we all have loved ones who have died. A lot of people want to reconnect with a loved one on the other side.There will be listeners. Its a huge target market with many topics and personalitesd that could be explored.

If the psychic is genuine it will go over well.

I use to listen to psychics on paltalk voice chat alot and those chat rooms would have 50 to 100 or 200 people on at a time.Many are waiting for a reading.

There are a tone of topic ideas and personalites that could make up uch achn.

Psychics also do meditations/healings. Some do wiccan stuff buddist meditation/healings there are also christain newage spiritualists and native spirtuality.

Alot of stuff that use to be on the old spirit web website

I think this would go over big becuase its new interesting and cutting edge.

Deepak is a very spirtual enlightend man and is a great signing and hes near the top of the iceberg when it comes to new age spirtualism.

I think more can be alot more explored on this topic.

Ghost stories / hauntings - psychics and those who havethe ghist could explain the ghosts past and then the psychic could try n heal the ghost. Some shows would be uplifting others will be frightening.
Show debunking psychcis or ghost hauntings etc

You can have teaching shows on Tarot cards astroligy psychic development/wicca/ native spirituality and even new age music shows
You coudl do series on all about angels heaven reincarnation etc.

Some much has been written and explored on this topic and some of it could be redone on sirius. Think about the popular the new age best selling books from authors Gary Zukav.He use to come on oprah talking about the earth plain and there are many many more like sylvia brown she is often on larry king

Best sellers CELESTINE PROPHECY by James Redfield
The davinci code movie ancient mysteries prophacies lost world secrets

One other show could be about Pseudo science much in the mold of a art bell. They could focus on ufos life on other planets the face on mars consipracy theories etc
