Kevin Hart Signs New Deal With SiriusXM Rebranded Event

Kevin Hart will maintain his comedic candor with SiriusXM. But this time, he presents figures who are better known outside of comedy.

The satellite radio company announced Wednesday that it had signed a long-term contract with Hart and his entertainment company, Heartbeat. As part of the deal, the superstar actor and comedian will continue to create comedic and cultural content on his Laugh Out Loud radio channel.

“In the end, it’s a great partnership,” Hart said in a recent interview with The Associated Press. “When you put yourself in a position to build a long-term partnership that can thrive, that’s a huge advantage. You see a relationship that has developed, that is growing, and is going in the right direction. I think this is where the hard work of building the channel and platform really paid off.”

Hart will co-host his podcast, Gold Minds with Kevin Hart, a rebranded show that will premiere its new season on Wednesdays on SiriusXM. Some comedians will continue to appear occasionally on the show. Still, there will be more talks with well-known personalities, including Emmy Award winner Jason Bateman, Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, actor-rapper Method Man, director Neil Berger, and television journalist Anderson Cooper and Stephen A Smith.

At the Gold Minds premiere, Hart will talk to Coogler about his career, work with Michael B. Jordan, and consult with Denzel Washington, Forest Whitaker, Sylvester Stallone, and Christopher Nolan.

Hart said he felt compelled to rename “Gold Minds” to expand beyond comedy into “a larger group of people with compelling stories.”

“I turned to businessmen, big businessmen, television personalities, great actors, actresses, directors. It’s pervasive,” she says. “There are a lot of people to talk to and not a lot of people to really access and convey properly once they’re with them.” I think I was one of the few people who had that opportunity, and I used it. I want people to enjoy these authentic conversations.”

Heartbeat will produce a slew of new programming, including “Love Thang with Punkie Johnson” and “One Song with Diallo and Luxxury,” hosted by HBO “South Side” co-creator Max Diallo Riddle and music producer Blake “Luxxury” Robin. His channel will exclusively air the late comedian Bernie Mac’s first stand-up special.
