Capitalizing on all of the news that surrounds Charlie Sheen, and on the heals of Charlie calling into the Howard Stern Show, Sirius XM has created a limited run channel titled “Tiger Blood Radio”. The name comes from quotes by Charlie expressing that he always carries a WINNING attitude and has tiger blood coursing through his veins.
The channel will run for 24 hours on Sirius (ch 108) and XM (ch 139) on March 5, at 6 a.m, and will certainly be a hit with listeners.
Just in case you have been living under a rock, Charlie Sheen is in the midst of a battle to get back his hit television show Two and a Half Men, which was canceled following his bender a couple of weeks ago. The show was among the most popular on television.
This type of move by Sirius XM demonstrates the ability of the company to have the flexibility, resources, and platform to act quickly and produce such a channel. It is one of the many advantages Sirius XM has over competitors such as terrestrial radio and Internet radio.
