Some marriages are made in heaven, and others are made on satellite radio. Such is the case today, as Comedy Central and SiriusXM announce the blessed union of their respective brands. Set to launch this spring, Comedy Central Radio will live exclusively on SiriusXM and will broadcast 24/7.
Like SiriusXM’s current comedy channels like Raw Dog, Laugh USA and Blue Collar Radio, Comedy Central Radio will feature tons of stand-up comedy clips. What makes it different, however, is that for the first time, comedy lovers will hear audio from Comedy Central programs like Comedy Central Presents and Premium Blend (both shows are no longer broadcast on television) as well as new performances and all-access specials from Comedy Central events. Comedians will also have yet another way to promote their new albums and specials, as they become guest DJs at SiriusXM.
In short: Hooray!
