NEW YORK, Sept. 11 (UPI) -- "The View" co-host Barbara Walters has signed on to moderate a weekly, New York-based call-in show on Sirius Satellite Radio.

"Barbara Live" will air on the Sirius Stars channel from 6 to 7 p.m. EST, starting Monday, Sirius said in a statement.

Joining Walters on-air to discuss hot topics with callers will be Bill Geddie, long-time executive producer of "The View," as well as Walters' Oscar specials.

"I look forward to being on Sirius radio. I especially love taking phone calls from listeners," Walters said in a statement. "This is a whole new experience for me, and very exciting."

"We are delighted our subscribers can now interact with one of America's broadcasting icons on a weekly basis," said Scott Greenstein, president of entertainment and sports at Sirius.
