Hornets rookie Kaminsky and Pistons rookie Johnson will host weekly call-in show

SiriusXM announced today that Detroit Pistons rookie Stanley Johnson and Charlotte Hornets rookie Frank Kaminsky, the #8 and #9 selections in the 2015 NBA Draft, respectively, will be the featured hosts on the third season of Year One, the exclusive SiriusXM NBA Radio show that gives listeners an inside look at the life of an NBA rookie.

Year One will debut on October 29 at 7:00 pm ET and air every Thursday on SiriusXM NBA Radio throughout the 2015-16 season.  SiriusXM NBA Radio is available to subscribers nationwide on satellite radios (XM channel 86, Sirius channel 207) and on smartphones via the SiriusXM app.

Kaminsky and Johnson will both host the season premiere episode on October 29, and thereafter will alternate hosting the show each week alongside SiriusXM’s Justin Termine.  On the program the players will take calls from listeners and offer their audience a unique perspective on their lives on and off the court as they make their way through their rookie campaign, discussing the adjustment from college to the pros, their experiences in their new cities and on the road, and more.

“Hosting Year One is going to be awesome,” said Johnson.  ”I can’t wait to share my rookie experience with the listeners. I want to bring a lot of new and interesting topics to the show this year…really bring the audience into my everyday life. I hope the fans will see that I’m a pretty interesting guy and enjoy being on this journey with me.”

“I am so excited to be hosting my first ever radio show and to have the chance to talk to the fans directly every other week,” Kaminsky said.  “Most people know I like to have fun with life, so I think the show will be a great way to share all of my different interests. I’ll explore all of the good food and entertainment in my new NBA city and take the audience along as I travel around the league. I can’t wait to get started.”

The Hornets drafted Kaminsky after an extraordinary senior season at the University of Wisconsin in which he helped lead the Badgers to the NCAA Tournament championship game.  He was the consensus National Player of the Year, winning the honor from the Associated Press and The Sporting News.  Kaminsky also earned the John R. Wooden Award, the Naismith Trophy, and the Oscar Robertson Trophy, and was a consensus first-team All-American.

Johnson was selected by the Pistons out of the University of Arizona, where he earned the Julius Erving Small Forward of the Year Award and Pac-12 Freshman of the Year honors after leading the Wildcats in scoring and helping them to the Pac-12 regular-season and tournament championships and a second consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament’s Elite Eight.

Previous seasons of Year One have featured Portland Trail Blazers guard C.J. McCollum and Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon.
