NEW YORK – September 14, 2010 – SIRIUS XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) announced today that actor Jerry Ferrara, best known for his role as Turtle on HBO’s hit series, Entourage, will host a weekly fantasy football show exclusively on SIRIUS XM Fantasy Sports Radio, the 24/7 fantasy sports channel available on XM channel 147 and SIRIUS channel 211 for subscribers with the “Best of XM.”
Ferrara’s Fantasy Football will air this Thursday, September 16 (7:00-8:00 pm ET / 4:00-5:00 pm PT), and every Thursday throughout the season.
Ferrara, who grew up in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn as a diehard New York Giants fan, will host the show each week from Los Angeles. A self-described “fantasy football fanatic,” he will take calls from other fantasy football players around the country, reviewing the week that was and previewing the coming weekend’s games, and will talk one-on-one with other celebrity fantasy football fans from the worlds of entertainment and sports.
“Fantasy football players love to talk to other fantasy football players about anything and everything fantasy football related,” said Ferrara. “That’s what my new SIRIUS XM show is all about. When NFL season rolls around, I become totally consumed with fantasy football and I know there are a lot of others out there like me. Having a place to talk it all out is almost therapeutic! Call me up and let’s talk about potential trades, waiver wire pickups, who you should start this weekend. And we’ll get some experts into the mix to give you the advice and info you need to get an edge in your league.”
