You Can Get Your Satellite Radios Out Of Storage, Kornheiser Signs With XM

Thursday, January 10, 2008

For all of you Kornheiser radio fans that at one point purchased an XM radio (persumably to listen to MLB 24/7) the MNFer will be joining back up with the satellite radio provider. And as an added bonus you get Dan Patrick as well!

Two sports-talk legends join XM on January 21st creating the New XM Sports Nation, XM 144. Fans across the country will be able to hear The Dan Patrick Show weekdays from 10am to 12pm ET/ 7am-9am PT.

Also beginning January 21st the Tony Kornheiser Show returns to the all-star lineup again. The all-new XM Sports Nation will feature topical sports news each day- filled with insight and humor from the some of the most renowned legends of sports-talk. In addition to Dan Patrick and Tony Kornheiser, you’ll also be able to hear other great sports-talk stars including: Tony Bruno, TJ Rives, Coach K, Cal Ripken Jr. and many more.
"Filled with insight and humor" huh? Well that's good to know ahead of time because he's been without those for about two years now.

Kornheiser is about a zillion times better on radio than on MNF. Think more Pardon the Interruption performance than MNF ineptitude.

XM blows. Ferrall on Sirius is one of the best sports shows currently.

Kornheiser (a) was much better in year 2 of MNF than year 1 and (b) has always been at his best when on radio.

I had Sirius and loved it. I bought a new car and it came with XM and its horrendous. Now if I can take a 2 hour lunch every day at work to listen to the Dan Patrick show, I might have a use for XM after all.

Coach K is getting a show? It probably isn't about sports but relationships...

The only reason to get XM is for the MLB radio package (Who wouldn't want to listen to Ed Farmer or Tom Hamilton from 1500 miles away?)
Besides, both Sirius & XM have had merger discussions before, but that would have to meet government approval.

Coach K already has a show - Basketball and Beyond. XM has ACC basketball, so it's worth it to me just for that. And now TK. Screw Sirius and that loud mouth Howard Stern.

I love the satellight radio brand loyalty... especially since they're pretty much the same. I'd rather listen to baseball and Dan Patrick than NFL and Howard Stern, but it's not like there's much difference between the rest of the programming.
