SiriusXM satellite radio announced that guitar icon Zakk Wylde, founder of Black Label Society and former guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, will host a new weekly sports talk series available to SiriusXM listeners nationwide.
“Wylde On Sports” — which Wylde will host alongside veteran sports talk personality Ken Thomson — will debut September 4 and air every Tuesday night (9:00 – 11:00 p.m. ET) for six weeks on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio, SiriusXM’s 24/7 fantasy sports channel. SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio airs on channel 87 on XM and channel 210 on Sirius Premier and is also available on the SiriusXM Internet Radio App and online at SiriusXM.com.
Wylde, who grew up in New Jersey and is a lifelong New York Giants fan, will take calls from fantasy football players around the country, discussing roster moves and potential trades and previewing the coming weekend’s games. Throughout the series, Wylde will also be joined on the show by celebrities and special guests from the worlds of entertainment and sports.
“I’m excited to join my brother-in-law Ken Thomson every Tuesday night on SiriusXM to recap all of the awesome NFL action, and to find out what in the Wylde world of sports is going on,” states Wylde. “We’ll be hosting an amazing cast of characters from the worlds of sports, music, movies, television & your local bowling alley as we get ‘Wylde On Sports’! Yay! Go Team!”
Wylde recently participated in the annual SiriusXM Celebrity Fantasy Football Draft, held in New York’s City’s Times Square. He’ll compete this season in a league that also includes teams managed by Jacksonville Jaguars All-Pro running back and 2011 NFL rushing leader Maurice Jones-Drew, comedians Artie Lange and Nick DiPaolo of “The Nick & Artie Show”, WWE star Mike “The Miz” Mizanin, actor George Wendt, Playboy Playmate and Playboy Radio host Pilar Lastra and others.
