NEW YORK, Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) announced today that The Dino Costa Show, the exclusive show headlined by compelling and hard-hitting radio personality Dino Costa, is moving to a new time and channel on the SiriusXM platform.
Starting this Thursday, September 5, The Dino Costa Show will be available to subscribers nationwide every weekday from 7:00 am to 11:00 am ET on SiriusXM Sports Zone (Sirius channel 92, XM channel 208). The show can also be heard on the SiriusXM Internet Radio App and online at SiriusXM.com, and is available on SiriusXM On Demand.
Dino Costa joined SiriusXM in 2009 and since that time has hosted the nighttime show on SiriusXM's Mad Dog Sports Radio channel. Truly a departure from the status quo, The Dino Costa Show is unlike anything else currently heard on sports radio. Willing to tackle issues and stories with a fearlessly independent eye, Dino hosts his show with a straight ahead, pull no punches style as he provides commentary and opinion on all the issues across the sporting landscape.
In 2012, Costa was recognized by Sports Illustrated as one of the country's best national radio voices. He was also named by Talkers Magazine as one of the "Heavy Hundred of Sports Talk," which identifies the most important sports talk radio hosts in America.
"When I joined SiriusXM nearly five years ago, my objective was to deliver listeners across North America a brand of sports commentary and opinion that they had never heard before, something that was a radical departure from the status quo," said Costa. "I feel I have accomplished that and gained a more than appreciable audience over that time. Creating and delivering the kind of a show I do would not have been possible anyplace other than SiriusXM and it is an honor and a privilege to be with what I consider to be the mightiest radio broadcaster on planet earth. I enjoyed my time with Mad Dog Sports Radio and now I look forward to new challenges and conquests and feel more enthused than ever at the prospects of making SiriusXM Sports Zone a destination channel for our valued subscribers. This is the start of something very big!"
