‘Mad Dog’ continues to bark; Chris Russo signs four year extension with SiriusXM; Adam Schein re-ups too
Colorful personality who burst onto the NYC radio scene in the 80s will continue to rant on the satcaster's Mad Dog Sports Radio channel
Christopher “Mad Dog” Russo has signed a new four-year contract to keep his unique brand of sports talk radio exclusively on SiriusXM.
Russo will continue to host his daily all-sports show, Mad Dog Unleashed, every weekday on the channel that Russo launched on SiriusXM in 2008 – Mad Dog Sports Radio.
Mad Dog Sports Radio is available to listeners nationwide on SiriusXM radios (channel 82), on the SiriusXM app, and at home on a wide variety of connected devices and speakers.
Additionally, Mad Dog Unleashed is among a selection of SiriusXM shows that are available to Pandora listeners as podcasts. The Mad Dog Unleashed podcast on Pandora features select content from Russo’s show, including monologues and interviews.
“Oh baby! Four more years, and I couldn’t be happier!” said Russo. “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. There’s no place, NO PLACE, better than SiriusXM to do the kind of show I want to do, with the freedom to talk about the topics that I want to cover and the listeners want to talk about. Now we’ll be reaching more fans than ever on SiriusXM and Pandora.”
Mad Dog is known for his epic rants. Enjoy a few of his recent ones, knowing we’ll hear many more over the next four years.
