Mad Dog Sports Radio is a Sirius XM Radio station which broadcasts sports talk, sports news, and play by play. This channel officially started broadcasting on November 12, 2008. However, Chris Russo, the channel's namesake was on the air before the channel officially signed on. On September 3, 2013 the station was re-branded Mad Dog Sports Radio. Despite getting more calls than any other national sports talk outlet, the station began to air less sports talk and more redundant play-by-play programming to save costs.
