Sirius Launches DIY Radio
Sep. 19, 2006

Sirius Satellite Radio is opening up the mic to its listeners, inviting them to create and host their own national radio show, the company announced Tuesday (Sept. 19). D.I.Y. Radio (for do-it-yourself) will debut on Sirius' Faction channel on Sept. 24 ad air each Sunday at 9 p.m. ET.
The move is similar to the open source radio concept pioneered by CBS Radio, which last year launched KYOU Radio in San Francisco, programmed with listener-submitted podcasts.
Each week, D.I.Y. Radio will put a different Sirius listener in control, allowing them to pick all of the music and say whatever they want, commercial-free and uncensored.
Earlier this year, Sirius launched Blog Radio on its Left of Center channel, featuring radio shows crated and hosted by music bloggers in America.
