21st Century Fox’s (FOXA) Fox Business Network is coming to Sirius XM Radio (SIRI) as part of an agreement that will last through 2019.
The agreement also extends Fox News Channel’s run on Sirius XM to 2019 as well. Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network will reach the roughly 25 million subscribers of the satellite radio provider. This will be the first time since 2008 that Fox Business Network will be available on Sirius. Fox News Channel will still air on channel 114 and will also be available on Sirius’ internet radio app and website. The Fox Business Network will start airing on Sirius’ satellite and internet radio this fall, reports Fox Business.
Sirius will also broadcast Fox News Talk, a radio talk show that features analysis and commentaries from personalities such as Tom Sullivan, Brian Kilmeade, John Gibson and Alan Colmes. The radio talk show has been hosted by Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs, Liz Claman and Charlie Gasparino, as well as others.
SIRI shares were up 1% as of Thursday morning, continuing a 29% year-to-date run.
