Rosie O'Donnell

Rosie O'Donnell will have a new place to share her view — this time on the radio.

The former talk show host and View moderator will begin hosting a daily radio show for Sirius XM radio this fall, according to The Associated Press.

Check out O'Donnell from her days on The View

O'Donnell said she was approached by the company after a recent appearance on talk-radio legend Howard Stern's Sirius show. "[Stern's] been very encouraging," she said. "After I did his show, they called and asked if I was interested. I don't really listen to radio, so I started thinking about it and listening. I asked if they could possibly do it at my house because that would really make it convenient for me with four kids, and they said yes, so I was like, 'Wow. Let's try that.'"

O'Donnell, who hosted The Rosie O'Donnell Show from 1996 to 2002, has stepped ... read more

Rosie O'Donnell Named Lousiest Lay Ever

Rosie O'Donnell by Gary Gershoff/ has just released its list of the worst sex scenes in history, and A) whew! None of mine are on it, and B) Nip/Tuck guest star Rosie O'Donnell's roll in the hay with Julian McMahon came in at No. 1.

Jennifer Lopez came in at No. 4 for her Gigli romp with then-fiancé Ben Affleck, and Sharon Stone landed at No. 8 for her hookup with Joe Pesci in Casino.

Premise: A popular daily talk show that largely mixed high-profile celebrity guests and music performances (including numbers from Broadway shows, one of Rosie's passions). The multi-Emmy-winning O'Donnell was a gracious interviewer who was well informed about (though with a tendency to fawn over) her guests. Among them: Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts, Hugh Grant, Martha Stewart, Steve Martin, J.K. Rowling and Mary Tyler Moore.
