I'll admit that I listen to XM Radio for 2 reasons. There used to be 3 reasons, but now that there are more and more commercials, I can't always count "commercial-free" radio as one of the reasons. First, I enjoy listening to CNN and FOX News. It's always interesting to get the real story and then drop over to FOX to get the right's version of it. The 2nd reason I enjoy XM Radio is that I can listen to stations like XM 20 on 20 so that I can do my best to try and keep up with what's current. Now, I have a new reason to listen to XM Radio: SIRIUS|XM Fantasy Sports Radio is the only 24/7 radio channel dedicated to all-things fantasy sports.
I checked in about two weeks ago and I'm hooked. It's available on XM channel 147 and on SIRIUS channel 211 for subscribers who purchase the "Best of XM" package. The channel features some serious heavyweights like Jaguars Pro-Bowler and 1st round fantasy pick Maurice Jones-Drew, former Major League Baseball general manager Steve Phillips, nine-time NHL All-Star Jeremy Roenick, golf analyst Alex Miceli, NBA veteran Dennis Scott, plus experts from well-known fantasy brands like RotoExperts.com, RotoWire.com, FanBall.com and FantasyPros911.com.
Much of the content on the shows is fantasy-baseball related at the moment, but there's still plenty of football to go around with callers calling their questions in. Just listening to them talk about fantasy football gets me jazzed for the season.
If you haven't checked it out yet, I encourage you to make it one of your favorites. It should be right there next to CNN, FOX News, and XM 20 on 20!
