The former stand-up comedian is launching her own daily, two-hour show for Sirius XM Radio this fall. "This is an exciting new adventure -- two hours of talk show entertainment, without having to wear makeup. Perfection," O'Donnell said in a statement to Usmagazine.com. "I can't wait to jumpstart each day with millions of Sirius XM listeners across the country."

"Rosie's millions of fans will hear her as they never have before and have the chance to call in and talk to her and her intriguing guests. Rosie Radio will entertain, inform, surprise and delight."
