Default John Madden Joins Sirius as Football Commentator

Emmy Award Winning Broadcaster John Madden Joins SIRIUS Satellite Radio as Football Commentator

NEW YORK, Sep 14, 2004 -- SIRIUS (SIRI), the Official Satellite Radio Partner of the NFL, today announced that Monday Night Football analyst and legendary NFL head coach John Madden has signed on with SIRIUS NFL Radio, the first 24/7 year-round radio channel devoted entirely to the NFL. Madden will serve as commentator on SIRIUS NFL Radio's Sunday pre- game program, The Stadium Tailgate Show.

"John Madden is one of the most respected authorities on football," said Scott Greenstein, SIRIUS President of Entertainment and Sports. "The respect he commands among his peers in football is unrivaled, and the knowledge and expertise that he has demonstrated on the field and behind the microphone can only be matched by his passion for the game."

The Stadium Tailgate Show can be heard on SIRIUS each Sunday prior to SIRIUS NFL Sunday Drive, the new programming package that lets subscribers choose from a full slate of live radio game broadcasts from all around the NFL. Football fans can catch all of the games of their favorite teams, usually with their team's radio broadcasters, no matter where they are in the country.

Considered one of the top NFL broadcasters of all time, Madden is currently in his 24th season as an NFL analyst and serves as a SIRIUS spokesperson. The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has honored Madden with an unprecedented 14 Outstanding Sports Personality/Analyst Emmy Awards, most recently in recognition for his work during the 2003 season. Before his outstanding broadcasting career, Madden was the head coach of the Oakland Raiders from 1969-1978, where he posted a 103-32-7 record and led the team to a victory in Super Bowl XI.

Launched by SIRIUS and the NFL earlier this month, SIRIUS NFL Radio provides the most comprehensive, in-depth radio coverage of the NFL, including daily shows hosted by legendary pro football figures. Madden joins an all-star lineup that includes recently-retired All-Pro tight end Shannon Sharpe, former NFL wide receiver Cris Carter, New York Jets and Washington Redskins Pro Football Hall of Fame running back John Riggins, former NFL head coach Dan Reeves, Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown and current Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson.

All SIRIUS NFL programming is included with every SIRIUS subscription at no extra charge. More details are available at
