about us

"Land Line Now" is the first daily news and information program designed specifically for America's truck drivers. The show is broadcast nationwide each day on Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s The Road Dog on Sirius XM Channel 146.

Each day's show includes a newscast keyed to the most important and current issues in trucking, national and state legislative analysis, as well as longer pieces that cover everything from truckers' lifestyle to regulatory information.

That package is created by our team of veteran journalists and broadcasters, as well as a range of guests with expertise in the trucking industry.

Our program is produced by the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association, the only national organization representing the interests of professional truckers in Washington, DC, in state legislatures and with the regulatory agencies dealing with transportation and highway safety.

In 7 plus years on the air, Land Line Now has won dozens of local, regional, national and international awards for its work, including:
