TORONTO, May 6, 2013 /CNW/ - SiriusXM Canada (TSX: XSR), the country's leading audio entertainment company, is
bringing two of Canada's favourite radio-rogues to subscribers.
"Humble" Howard Glassman and Fred Patterson will bring their brand of
straight-shooting, hilarious talk radio to SiriusXM Canada's comedy
channel, Canada Laughs, formerly Laugh Attack (channel 168), starting May 9.
Humble and Fred have been part of the Canadian radio community for over
thirty years, and were voted Best Morning Show in Canada four times by
the Canadian Music Industry, solidifying their name as two of the
loudest and funniest voices in Canadian radio. The duo and their
unapologetic style will soon be landing at SiriusXM for their next
adventure: satellite radio, where they will broadcast an exclusive,
unedited first-runshow live from Humble and Fred's "5-hour ENERGY
Studio" every weekday.
"Fred and I love being on the radio together, we couldn't think of a
better gig out there," said "Humble" Howard Glassman. "We were very
successful on terrestrial radio and Internet radio, and the chance to
reach a satellite audience is going to be a whole new party for us, and
we can't wait."
"We're thrilled to have the compelling duo as part of our refreshed Canada Laughs channel," said Joe Thistel, Director, Sports and Talk Programming at
Sirius XM Canada. "It's the perfect home for their uncensored brand of
comedy and just adds to our loaded roster of Canadian talent."
The Humble and Fred Show enhances SiriusXM Canada's new slate of Canadian talent on Canada
Laughs, including the popular and recently announced Hotzcast Radio, hosted by comedy icon Kenny Hotz of Kenny vs. Spenny fame. The Humble
and Fred show will broadcast weekdays starting May 9 at 7:00 - 9:00 am
ET, with replays at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm ET.
