Los Angeles television anchor and reporter Lauren Sivan has joined Dr. Drew Pinsky as co-host of the daily News Talk radio show Dr. Drew Midday Live with Lauren Sivan. The three-hour program features a blend of Dr. Drew’s and Sivan’s takes on the news of the day, mixed with expert advice and counseling, celebrity and newsmaker interviews, and listener interaction. The show airs live Monday through Friday, Noon-3 p.m. on Talk Radio 790/KABC Radio (Los Angeles) and from 1-3 p.m. in a live simulcast on News Talk station KGO 810 (San Francisco).
Sivan has made regular appearances on KABC Radio as fill-in co-host with Dr. Drew (in Middays) and John Phillips (in Afternoon Drive), and has anchored the news in Morning Drive on McIntyre in the Morning. She also hosted a KABC Friday Night Special in 2016. Sivan previously anchored the KTTV FOX 11 5 O’Clock News in Los Angeles, and reported for FOX 11 and for Good Day LA.

Both bring a world of varied experiences and distinctive perspectives to the show, and are already getting positive listener response in L.A. and San Francisco.”
