NEW YORK – December 2, 2004 - SIRIUS (NASDAQ: SIRI), the premium satellite radio provider known for delivering the most compelling commercial-free music and sports programming to cars and homes across the country, today announced that double World Champion and double Olympic medalist Bode Miller will host his own radio show on SIRIUS Faction, the innovative music channel created especially for action sports enthusiasts.
On The Bode Show, Miller will take listeners along as he, his friends and other racers talk about their experiences on and off the Alpine circuit. Bode will talk about and play his music. Starting December 9th, the show will air on SIRIUS Faction // Channel 28, every Thursday at 9 pm ET.
Miller will kick things off with a special broadcast from the Ice Rink in Beaver Creek, Colorado around 6:15pm MT on Thursday, December 2. Teammate Erik Schlopy and four-time Olympic medalist Summer Sanders will join Miller for a brief snapshot of what can be expected musically and topically on The Bode Show.
Miller has burst from the starting gate, making history by winning the first three races of the World Cup season - adding to his previous 12 World Cup wins. He sits in 1st place in the overall World Cup downhill, Super G and giant slalom standings. By winning his first career Super G, Bode became just the fifth racer ever to win a World Cup event in all five Alpine disciplines.
Bode says, "I'm psyched to get out with SIRIUS in front of ski and music fans - to have a little party and talk some skiing and play some tunes."
"Bode Miller is redefining the world of skiing with his charisma and athletic achievements," said Scott Greenstein, SIRIUS President of Entertainment and Sports. "Bode will treat his fans to an entertaining and fun weekly show that will also provide an inside view to his world of accomplishments."
