    NEW YORK, June 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SIRIUS Satellite Radio
 (Nasdaq:   SIRI), the Official Satellite Radio Partner of the NFL, has added
 legendary NFL receiver Jerry Rice to the roster of expert hosts on SIRIUS
 NFL Radio, channel 124, the only 24/7 year-round radio channel devoted to
 the NFL.

     Rice will begin hosting on SIRIUS NFL Radio on Tuesday, June 13th when
 he co-hosts "The Afternoon Blitz" with Adam Schein from 3-7 pm ET. He will
 be heard three days a week on SIRIUS every week throughout the year.
     "I'm thrilled to be joining the SIRIUS NFL Radio team. SIRIUS is the
 Super Bowl Champion of satellite radio companies," said Rice. "I'm going to
 approach my broadcasting career with the same energy and enthusiasm I had
 during my playing career and we'll put on a fun and informative show for
 all the listeners out there."
     "Very few athletes in professional sports can claim that they were the
 absolute best at what they did -- Jerry Rice is one of those few," said
 Scott Greenstein, SIRIUS' President, Entertainment and Sports. "Now he will
 share his incredible wealth of knowledge and experience with SIRIUS'
 nationwide audience. Our listeners will be able to interact with him all
 year long, talking directly to one of the greatest players to ever put on a
 uniform."
     After being drafted in 1985 by coach Bill Walsh and the San Francisco
 49ers out of Division I-AA Mississippi Valley State, Jerry Rice went on to
 become the greatest receiver in NFL history. When he retired in 2005, his
 #80 had become a symbol of excellence.
     Over an astonishing and highlight-filled 20-year career, Rice re-wrote
 the NFL record books with 208 career touchdowns, 22,895 career receiving
 yards and 1,549 career receptions. He represented one half of two of the
 most famously successful quarterback-receiver tandems in league history
 when he teamed up with Hall-of-Famers Joe Montana and Steve Young. He was
 selected to 13 Pro Bowls, won three Super Bowls and was named MVP of Super
 Bowl XXIII.
     On SIRIUS NFL Radio, Rice joins a lineup of NFL experts that includes
 Cris Carter, Randy Cross, Gil Brandt, Tim Ryan, Pat Kirwan, Solomon Wilcots
 and Adam Schein. NFL fans can tune in to SIRIUS NFL Radio throughout the
 calendar year for the only 24/7 radio channel dedicated entirely to pro
 football talk.
     As the Official Satellite Radio Partner of the NFL, SIRIUS is the home
 of NFL Sunday Drive, the broadcasting package that offers live nationwide
 every regular and post-season NFL game, including the Super Bowl and Pro
 Bowl. Listeners can hear home and visiting team broadcasts, national radio
