Default Sirius Reveals NASCAR Programming Initiative

from orbitcast
http://tinyurl.com/ycavjv




Sirius has unveiled their programming initiative when the NASCAR torch is handed over from XM to Sirius in 2007.
Sirius will combine live race broadcasts with up to 10 additional "Team Talk" channels featuring the driver-to-crew communications of different race teams during NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series races. So you'll be able to follow the overall race call and the in-car audio of a driver on a single channel throughout the race.
The channels will feature top drivers based on the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series standings. The lineup of drivers and their channel assignments will be available at www.sirius.com/nascar before each race.
Sirius will broadcast every NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series, NASCAR Busch Series and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race, carrying the live broadcasts of Motor Racing Network (MRN), Performance Racing Network (PRN) and the IMS Radio Network's broadcast from Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

On top of all this live race coverage, Sirius will launch SIRIUS NASCAR Radio (ch 128) which will include live races, plus daily and weekly talk programs, including "Tony Stewart Live."
More details, schedules and hosts on SIRIUS NASCAR Radio will be announced soon

This is a great idea (that I suggested on Sept. 6, 2004 on XM411 http://www.xm411.com/phpbb/viewtopic...fanscan#143252)
I e-mailed Tim Farley and suggested they use the dead-air time on XM 180 through 188 (add 189) to do the scanner chatter of the ten drivers in the Chase for the Championship individually on each channel, and keep 145 for the scan of all the drvers.

I hope Sirius will dedicate 10 channels to this instead of preempting other listener's enjoyment. I suggested that XM should do this when some complained about XM 145. 145 used to have the audio from FanScan.com. It was also driver audio but scanned from driver to driver.

If they preempt other channels programming it means that on NFL Sundays when there is a race there could be up to 42 preempted channels at once. And it's possible that there could be an NBA game or two thrown in at the same time adding even more needed channels. It almost seems like they'd either have to preempt every single talk channel, or use some of the music channels.

NASCAR on Sirius will be nice but the in car driver audio will probably be disappointing to most. If your familiar with the sport and have listened to a scanner at the track, most drivers are not talking that much. What you will here is a lot of lap times by the crew chiefs and chatter by the spotter. "Clear high.... Clear low.... Clear all-around." It can get interesting when they start to discuss pit strategy and also when a driver gets pissed off. 10 channels of this could be overkill. Perhaps 3 or 4 with some of the more vocal drivers would do.

Looking forward to Tony Stewart Live. Theres some vocalization ! + =

No, but when he gets bored, Tony does get on the radio and sing... kinda startling when you hear it and he's running 15th a lap down. You'd think he'd be raising all kinds of hell, but no, he's singin' along, just logging laps... I've actually heard him do it on the scanner

I'm starting to get into Nascar and that great they will have 10 additional channels for "Team Talk". But the one thing I wish Sirius would stop doing is taking over channels and create like 10-15 channels just for sports only. But I know yes, it would bring down the SQ. But every Sunday when NFL is on it takes over some people channels they might want to hear. Even with the NBA when there like several games playing at night. Once again they take over some channels. So if they do like XM does, but Sirius creates 10-15 channels and on those channels they mix the NBA, NFL and Nascar on them only, but if there are tons of sports going on that day. Then yes take over other channels for more back up.

It will be interesting to see if Smoke lets they broadcast his in car. Right now, the 20 team does not allow Nascar.com to broadcast it via trackpass. He's the only one, I think. You can pick him up on the scanning feature of trackpass, but not dial in on him.

Great point. I remember the owners speaking out when it was announced that NASCAR had signed with Sirius (as reported by Jayski). They want their piece of the pie (justifiably) too.

There has been a push by some car owners the past three years for NASCAR to provide a more equitable distribution of that $400 million a year, but NASCAR has ignored such entreaties. Now Sirius (partly owned by DaimlerChrysler) has signed a deal to pay NASCAR $27 million a year, according to sources, beginning in 2007. That money will likely go straight into NASCAR's coffers. Some car owners aren't amused and would like NASCAR to put some of that radio money in the purse. "These guys are killing us," one car owner said.(Winston Salem Journal)(3-15-2005)

I'm siked about the Team talk also. The only thing I have a question about is that the audio would be most benificial as a background to the race on TV. Unfortunatly, all Sirius sports run with a 30 second or so delay so the match up would be aweful. It looks like the only time it would be cool is if you were not near a TV. Which is almost never. Don't get me wrong, I think it's great. That 30 second delay screws it up to match TV.

I've got a DVR through my cable company. Look into Tivo or a DVR. It's easy to sync the satellite radio broadcast with the TV broadcast when you have them both, and the delay isn't 30 seconds. It's more like 7-12 seconds.

More details from Jayski:

The channels will feature top drivers based on the Nextel Cup Series standings. The lineup of drivers and their channel assignments will be available at www.sirius.com/nascar prior to each race.
Listeners will hear drivers and crew chiefs schedule pit stops and discuss strategy over audio of the overall race broadcast. When the team members are not on the radio the audio of the live race broadcast will come up allowing listeners to follow the entire race uninterrupted.

Just get Satellite TV. The DishTV delay is almost the same...

David Poole and Marty Snider to Host Sirius' new NASCAR Morning Show
NASCAR reporter/columnist David Poole, and veteran broadcaster Marty Snider, will be the hosts of a new daily talk show on Sirius NASCAR Radio's "The Morning Drive."

Starting January 1st, "The Morning Drive" will air every weekday morning from 7am-11am ET on Sirius Satellite Radio's NASCAR Radio (ch 128). Snider and Poole discuss NASCAR's latest news and rumors, interview prominent guests, and take calls from listeners.

David Poole has covered NASCAR for The Charlotte Observer for 10 seasons and is a regular contributor to ThatsRacin.com. Poole is the author of several books on NASCAR, including Race with Destiny: The Race That Changed NASCAR Forever and Tim Richmond: The Fast Life and Remarkable Times of NASCAR's Top Gun.


Snider has covered NASCAR for several media outlets including TNT, NBC, and Motor Racing Network; as well as being CNNSi's NASCAR reporter and a reporter/producer for ESPN's NASCAR Today. Snider is a regular contributor to NASCAR.com and NBCSports.com as a NASCAR Insider.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sirius to Debut "The Driver's Seat" on NASCAR Radio
In conjuntion with NASCAR making the move over to Sirius in January, Sirius will debut a new daily NASCAR talk show on Sirius' NASCAR Radio (ch 128).

Airing every weekday from 11am-3pm ET, "The Driver's Seat" is hosted by veteran broadcaster John Kernan alongside a slew of current and former NASCAR drivers serving as co-hosts.

Featured NASCAR co-hosts include: Buddy Baker, Johnny Benson, Randy LaJoie, Ron Hornaday, Ricky Craven, Phil Parsons and interestingly enough - John Andretti. John Andretti is Michael Andretti's cousin, co-owner of Andretti Green Racing, which has signed with XM.


The Driver's Seat, produced in conjunction with Performance Racing Network (PRN).

This last sentence is interesting to me. XM focused on producing their own shows or using the MRN/PRN/IMSRN shows that you can hear on terrestrial (at least in some parts of the world). It looks like Sirius will have new shows, but will depend on industry experts to produce them (not to impune the work of XM).

The Gibbs teams audio is scrambled. All others are in the clear.
