Satellite radio provider SiriusXM has closed its SiriusXM Book Radio channel. In a statement to listeners, the company said “our commitment to books and authors remains high across many channels.”

A number of Book Radio shows have moved to other stations. The “Pia Lindstrom Presents” show has moved to SiriusXM Stars (SiriusXM channel 106) on Saturdays at 12 p.m. ET. Former Book Radio host Maggie Linton now has a daily show on SiriusXM Urban View (SiriusXM channel 110) running Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET.

Classic radio theater and stories continue on Radio Classics (SiriusXM channel 82), and audiobooks air on our “Late Night Read” show at night on SiriusXM Stars … Additionally, we will continue our “Author Confidential” series, featuring top authors, and former publisher Judith Regan continues her weekly interview show on Saturdays at 10am on SiriusXM Stars. We encourage you to tune in to a wide variety of author interviews and discussions on many of our shows and channels, including Bob Edwards on SiriusXM Public Radio (Sirius channel 205 and XM channel 121) and Pete Dominick on SiriusXM Indie (SiriusXM channel 104).
