Sirius XM Radio knows when something is hot. The satellite radio provider announced today that it’s kicking off a special channel dedicated to the Charlie Sheen whirlwind called “Tiger Blood Radio”.
They are advertising the channel as a “limited engagement” only. “Tiger Blood Radio” will begin broadcasting tomorrow, March 5, at 6 a.m. EST and go offline Sunday, March 6, at 6 p.m. EST.
Here is the official announcement from Sirius XM:
Tune in to “Tiger Blood Radio,” a 24-hour limited run channel that will explore the breaking news, facts, fallout and career implications of the Charlie Sheen controversy.
“Tiger Blood Radio” will take listeners behind the headlines, exploring the media frenzy/media reaction, as well as the medical, psychological, psychiatric and pop culture and celebrity angles. Additionally, through a recap of news coverage, it will offer a timeline of recent events.
During the exclusive, limited run channel, SiriusXM listeners will hear archival Playboy Radio clips featuring “Goddess”/current live-in girlfriend Bree Olson, a Playboy Radio contributor. In addition, Sheen’s ex-fiancée/Spice Radio host Ginger Lynn shares stories of her relationship with him on Tiffany Granath‘s Playboy Radio show; and adult film star Kacey Jordan talks to Playboy Radio’s Night Calls about her times with Sheen.
It’s probably a good idea for Sirius XM to strike while the iron is hot. Sheen managed to get 1 million Twitter followers in just 24 hours. I’m not sure there’s ever been a more fantastic media circus in recent years.
It will be interesting to see what else Sirius XM has cooked up on the bi-winning superstar.
Tune in tomorrow morning on Sirius channel 108 or XM channel 139 to find out!
