Spike Lee Gets Sirius

A month after the launch of Sirius XM’s NBA Radio, the audio vertical has its first official rabble rouser – Spike Lee.

SiriusNBARadioLogoPer a tipped release to the AP, the filmmaker will debut bi-weekly show  Spike Lee’s Best Seat in the House January 30 at 7 p.m. Subscribers can catch it via Channel 217:

“While he’s well known for his courtside allegiance to the Knicks, he knows the league and its history inside and out and can bring together the worlds of basketball and entertainment like no one else can,” SiriusXM president and chief content officer Scott Greenstein said in a statement.

That’s not all. According to the AP article, Lee is also getting a second bi-weekly Sirius show for which he will interview non-sports figures. On the Courtside front, here’s hoping Carmelo Anthony or James Dolan make it into the early Spike Sirius guest rotation.
