It’s been a few years since Fox Sports Radio has been on SiriusXM satellite radio. But that ends this week as SiriusXM will launch a new Fox Sports channel on Friday. Sports Business Daily reports that subscribers will be able to hear a mix of FS1 and Fox Sports Radio programming on the channel which will take Bleacher Report’s slot on Channel 83.

Fox Sports Radio left the SiriusXM lineup in 2013 after iHeart Media sold its stake in the satellite service.

With Fox Sports returning to SiriusXM, people will be able to hear simulcasts of Colin Cowherd’s show, Undisputed with Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe and Speak for Yourself with Cowherd and Jason Whitlock. In addition, several Fox Sports Radio shows will fill the programming holes that aren’t FS1 simulcasts.

Fox Sports joins ESPN and Mad Dog Radio on the service. And it allows those who don’t have access to a television to listen to what debates they’re missing.

The SiriusXM continues to expand its sports programming and Fox regains access to the satellite radio audience.

Some of Bleacher Report’s programming such as its NFL show and morning program with Ric Bucher and Nicole Zaloumis have been moved to other channels on the SiriusXM lineup.

So Fox Sports returns to SiriusXM and brings its FS1 embrace debate lineup into the mix.
