The post-election special will air from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. EST on Tuesday, October 20 and will be co-hosted by veteran broadcasters and SiriusXM personalities Evan Solomon and Arlene Bynon who will review election results riding-by-riding and talk with guests and experts from across the political spectrum.
"Once Canadians exit the polls and the results are tallied, we expect some very interesting discussion and analysis related to the most historic federal election campaign we've seen in a long time," said Joe Thistel, Director of Talk and Sports Programming, SiriusXM Canada. "Evan and Arlene bring massive experience to this discussion and will provide listeners with up-to-the-minute reactions from Canadians and the fall-out across each political party in their election results analysis and they'll be joined in-studio and through call-ins from the field by expert political insiders and opinion-makers."
