Default Arena Football League, Sports Byline USA, and Sirius

I started another thread on this and it was moved (I don't know why, it was very sports programming related ). Here is more detail courtesy of

Inside the AFL
AFL national radio program to debut on Sports Byline USA
NEW YORK – The Arena Football League today announced a new weekly radio program for the 2004 season that will make its debut on Sports Byline USA this Thursday, February 5 at 9 p.m. ET.

The one-hour program titled, “This Week in the AFL,” is scheduled to air every Thursday at 9 p.m. ET throughout the AFL season. The show will be replayed again each Saturday at 1 p.m. ET. The final program will air the week following ArenaBowl XVIII.

The show will air on Sports Byline USA’s network of affiliates, Sirius Satellite Radio (Stream 122), more than 500 worldwide affiliates of the American Forces Radio Network, various airlines as an in-flight audio option, throughout Canada and on Radio New Zealand. The program will also be accessible online at and

“’This Week in the AFL’ on Sports Byline radio, along with our new television show on Fox Sports Net, extends the AFL’s reach beyond the schedule of weekend games,” said MARC LOWITZ, AFL Vice President of Broadcast and New Media. “AFL fans now have the opportunity to watch games every weekend on NBC and the teams’ local broadcasters and catch up with AFL news during the week on Fox Sports Net and Sports Byline.”

The show, hosted by San Francisco native and veteran sports broadcaster LARRY KRUEGER, will include a recap of the previous and upcoming week’s games, focused match-ups, an AFL fantasy segment, and interviews with players, coaches and other AFL personalities.

“We are thrilled to add the AFL to our programming lineup and bring this fan-friendly sport to our listeners worldwide each week,” said DARREN PECK, President of Sports Byline USA. “We are very proud to be a part of the league’s growing success.”

Fan loyalty is the hallmark of AFL partnerships. An ESPN Sports Poll released in November 2003 revealed for the third consecutive year that AFL fans are more likely to try, switch, and remain loyal to a sponsor's product due to a sponsorship of an event/sport they follow than fans of NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL and NASCAR.


Sports Byline USA is America's #1 Sports Talk Network. Now in its 16th year, Sports Byline USA has become the most popular radio sports talk network in the country. Anchored by Founder Ron Barr's nightly Sports Byline USA program, the network offers traditional sports talk as well as featured programs on baseball, football, basketball, hockey, horse racing, soccer, golf and motor racing, as well as specialty programs such as sports trivia, sports collectibles, pro wrestling, video games and outdoor sports. Sports Byline USA is also the exclusive radio home to seven College Football Bowl Games.


Often recognized as one of the nation's most affordable and fan-friendly sports leagues, the Arena Football League, the second-longest running football league in U.S. history, will begin its 18th season in February 2004. On the strength of its Mission Statement and Fans' Bill of Rights, the AFL is America's fastest growing sport. The Austin Wranglers join the Philadelphia Soul and New Orleans VooDoo as the three expansion teams added for the 2004 season. At least two more teams will be added in each of the next two seasons. A network-TV sport, the AFL will celebrate its second season on NBC in 2004.

I moved it because I thought it wasn't on Sirius - my mistake.

Hey, please fill me in on that sports byline channel. What's on there? Every time I have listened it's kind of sucked. But I haven't listened a lot.
