Mad Dog Sports Radio is a Sirius XM Radio station which broadcasts sports talk, sports news, and some play by play. This channel officially started broadcasting on November 12, 2008. However, Chris Russo,[1] the channel's namesake was on the air before the channel officially signed on.

Mad Dog Sports Radio has recently pushed to improve its programming schedule adding the likes of Stephen A Smith (from New York), Glenn Ordway (from Boston) and Tom Byrne (from Philadelphia). The addition of Smith to the weekday lineup puts the station atop the national outlets for sports talk.
