Sirius XM Radio and Harpo Radio have officially relaunched the Oprah & Friends satellite radio channel as Oprah Radio, a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week outlet on XM channel 156 and on Sirius channel 195 as part of "The Best of XM" package. Daily and weekly shows will feature talent such as Maya Angelou, medical expert Mehmet Oz, fitness trainer Bob Greene, financial expert Jean Chatzky, design expert Nate Berkus and former news anchor-turned inspirationalist Daryn Kagan. "We are thrilled to be expanding our already robust radio programming for fans who are seeking to live their best lives," said Erik Logan, executive vice-president, Harpo Inc., in announcing the relaunch.

Called "Better in Bed," the show premieres Wednesday, Feb. 18, and will air five days a week from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. central time on XM Channel 156 and Sirius Channel 195. In a statement, Berman said of her new show: "My goal is to give listeners all of the resources they need to have the love, intimacy and satisfaction they want in and out of the bed. Whether it is sharing the newest science on love and attraction, counseling couples in crisis or answering listener questions, this live show is going to be energetic, fun and informative."

In conjunction with the new radio show start-up, Berman said she will discontinue her Sun-Times column and her regular Friday morning segment on NBC-owned WMAQ-Channel 5. Her last Sun-Times column will be next Tuesday.
