Sirius XM is welcoming back MSNBC to its airwaves.
The liberal "place for politics"was taken off of XM's satellite radio back in 2006, though Fox News and CNN were still readily available. Now, the most liberal of our cable news networks will be accessible to subscribers to SiriusXM, which merged back in July of 2008. MSNBC will air on SIRIUS channel 90 and XM channel 120.
As a fan of all radio, I find satellite to be irresistable, in particular because the Tampa Bay area is such a radio wasteland.
Actually, if you're a fan of conservative radio, I take that back, since the Tampa Bay market is absolutely nirvana for fans of that genre, where you can always find daily hits of Rush, Beck, Hannity, Dennis Prager, Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, Michael Savage, etc. If local conservative talk radio is more your style, you've got Jack and Ted over at 970 WFLA, and Schnitt as well.
If you prefer progressive radio, you've got, em, let's see......what do you have here in Tampa? Well, WMNF for four hours a day during the week has solid public affairs programming, with some additional shows on weekend mornings before it goes back to playing music.
