SIRIUS to launch new channels soon
SIRIUS Satellite Radio said Thursday it will launch several new channels in late September including the Martha Stewart channel.
Martha Stewart Living Radio will be assigned channel 112 on Sept. 29. The channel will add more programming throughout the fall, including advice from Martha's team of experts, simulcasts of the new syndicated television show Martha and call-ins from listeners. Ultimately, the channel will carry a full schedule of shows covering cooking, home keeping, pet keeping, gardening, collecting, crafts, weddings and much more.
"Our new channels and personalities, added to our already compelling programming, gives our subscribers even greater depth and variety of programming to choose from," said Scott Greenstein, SIRIUS president of Entertainment and Sports. "New categories in our channel lineup, such as Especially For Women, Families & Kids, Religion, and News & Public Radio, reinforces SIRIUS' pre-eminent position of having the best programming in all of radio."
