Christopher “Mad Dog” Russo is staying put. The sports radio legend has a new four-year contract to remain at SiriusXM hosting afternoon drive on his own channel, Mad Dog Sports Radio.
Not only will Russo continue to host Mad Dog Unleashed on SiriusXM channel 82, his show is also among those included in the new deal between Pandora and SiriusXM that will see some SiriusXM shows repurposed as podcasts for Pandora listeners.
“Oh baby! Four more years, and I couldn’t be happier!” Russo said in a press release. “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. There’s no place, NO PLACE, better than SiriusXM to do the kind of show I want to do, with the freedom to talk about the topics that I want to cover and the listeners want to talk about. Now we’ll be reaching more fans than ever on SiriusXM and Pandora.”
Russo’s is the second extension for a Mad Dog Sports Radio talent in 2019. Mid day host Adam Schein signed a four-year extension of his own just last month.
