NEW YORK – April 26, 2011 – Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) announced today that Mad Dog Radio personality Dino Costa will host a special marathon edition of the Dino Costa Show on Thursday, April 28, the opening night of the NFL Draft. Costa will broadcast live for 11 consecutive hours, from 7:00 pm ET to 6:00 am ET the following morning, covering the Draft’s entire first round and then talking about the event with fans around the country throughout the night.
