NEW YORK, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SiriusXM and Bleacher Report today announced the upcoming launch of SiriusXM Bleacher Report Radio, a new satellite radio channel debuting September 2 that will deliver engaging content from one of the leading digital sports destinations to a nationwide audience of listeners.

Bleacher Report

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.

The SiriusXM Bleacher Report Radio channel will feature a daily lineup of shows hosted by some of Bleacher Report's most prominent voices, including Will Carroll, King Kaufman, Dan Levy and Josh Zerkle, as well as daily contributions from B/R's deep roster of writers and contributors.  Featured hosts will also include former NFL linebacker Kirk Morrison, broadcaster Nicole Zaloumis and others.

"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."

"Our partnership with SiriusXM is a great opportunity to extend our brand and provide a unique new voice to the sports radio landscape," said Dave Finocchio, Founder and General Manager of Bleacher Report. "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."

Weekday broadcasts will cover the national sports landscape from Bleacher Report's unique, fan-focused perspective, kicking off at 7:00 am ET with The Morning B/Reakaway, hosted by Dan Levy and Josh Zerkle.  They will be followed by Nicole Zaloumis hosting B/R Spotlight from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm ET.  Will Carroll and Jason Goff will host B/R Afternoon Drive from 3:00 to 6:00 pm ET daily.  At 6:00 pm ET each day King Kaufman, manager of Bleacher Report's writer program, will host Content Is King, an hour-long look at sports and sports media with top Bleacher Report talent.

Kirk Morrison, who played linebacker for the Oakland Raiders, Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills from 2005 through 2012, will host a weekly pro football preview show that will debut prior to the season opening games.  The channel will also broadcast live news updates on the hour, weekend talk programming, including a fantasy football show, and live games on nights and weekends from the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL and more.
