Sirius Satellite Radio offers an ever growing list of hosts across its various channels, especially since its 2008 merger with XM. Many of these hosts are well known DJs, talk show hosts and even celebrities who sometimes anchor special shows. In some cases, they may oversee programming on individual streams or channels.

Here's a list of some of the more interesting Sirius XM personalities as of 2017.
