Fans can watch the episodes on Rose’s personal Facebook page.
“Facebook is a great partner to help us realize our multi-platform vision for the future of CBS RADIO,” said Jeff Shultz, Senior Vice President, Business Development, CBS RADIO. “First we reimagined the iconic Loveline franchise as a podcast with a fresh and authentic personality. Now we are presenting a live video version on an easily accessible social platform that has mass reach and appeal.”
Subsequent episodes will air on Facebook Live on Friday, Nov. 18 and Sunday, Nov. 27 before taking a holiday hiatus in December and resuming in the new year with all-new episodes featuring scintillating guests and riveting conversations.

To join the conversation, listeners can submit their questions by calling 213-375-5258 or via the Facebook comments stream during each live broadcast.
The hour-long “Loveline with Amber Rose” podcast launched in September and marks the return of the popular “Loveline” talk radio show, now in a contemporary format. The show explores topics ranging from sexual curiosity and relationships to self-empowerment – all embodying Rose’s distinct and refreshing honesty and flair. In each episode, she and Dr. Donaghue chat openly with other sex counselors and special guests as they discuss stories and topical issues, as well as take listeners’ calls so they can share their personal experiences in a judgment-free environment.
