XM will expand ESPN programs in its lineup starting Feb. 4, featuring a new ESPN Radio-dedicated channel.
XM and ESPN will re-brand XM channel 141 as ESPN Xtra. The channel will enhance its current schedule of ESPNEWS programming with new shows and specials, including three of ESPN Radio’s talk programs from its owned stations in New York and Dallas.
The companies say these particular programs will be available for the first time for a national radio audience only on XM.
The ESPN Xtra channel will also air content produced by ESPN for XM throughout the year.
