SiriusXM and Bleacher Report have announced the upcoming launch of SiriusXM Bleacher Report Radio, a new satellite radio channel debuting September 2.
Airing on Sirius channel 93 and XM channel 208, the exclusive new channel will showcase a variety of Bleacher Report voices and give sports fans from coast to coast a live, interactive forum to discuss their teams, topics and events with experts from every major sport. SiriusXM Bleacher Report Radio will also be available to subscribers via the SiriusXM Internet Radio App.
Bleacher Report, a division of Turner Broadcasting, is the leading digital destination for team-specific sports content and real-time event coverage and is one of the fastest-growing digital properties in the U.S. SiriusXM began airing a daily Bleacher Report-branded show in 2013. The programming now expands to a full channel that will reach more than 26 million SiriusXM subscribers nationwide.
"Bleacher Report has had extraordinary success engaging fans with their unique way of covering sports. The launch of the SiriusXM Bleacher Report Radio channel opens up a whole new level of communication for SiriusXM subscribers who are fans of the popular site," said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM's President and Chief Content Officer. "This new forum gives Bleacher Report an expanded platform to showcase many of the best sportswriters in the business, and gives SiriusXM listeners the ability to call in and talk directly with the experts about their favorite team."
"SiriusXM Bleacher Report Radio will provide fans with an opportunity to engage with our deep roster of analysts, reporters and columnists surrounding all of the top news stories each day."
