Rural Radio To Launch On SiriusXM


Sirius XM Radio and Rural Radio today announced the creation of Rural Radio, a 24/7 channel devoted to providing a wide variety of programming for and about rural American life, the western lifestyle, and agribusiness interests.

Airing weekdays on Channel 80, Rural Radio will offer news and weather, market reports, and shows, including a wide variety of original productions focused on agriculture, equine, hunting, fishing, western sports, and living the country life in small towns and on acreages.

"SiriusXM's unparalleled programming and easy-to-use technology has been embraced by rural consumers in their cars, pickups, tractors, and combines throughout North America," said Patrick Gottsch, Founder of Rural Media Group, Inc. and Rural Radio, LLC. "Rural Radio is designed to fill the growing demand for more rural content that is being ignored by urban-based broadcasters."

SiriusXM President and Chief Content Officer Scott Greenstein said, "Rural Media Group has a proven track record of offering great programming for rural Americans and those drawn to the western lifestyle. In growing SiriusXM's diverse programming lineup, we are excited to join with Rural Media Group to super-serve the rural audience."
