TORONTO, May 6, 2013 /CNW/ - SiriusXM Canada (TSX: XSR), the country's leading audio entertainment company, is bringing two of Canada's favourite radio-rogues to subscribers. "Humble" Howard Glassman and Fred Patterson will bring their brand of straight-shooting, hilarious talk radio to SiriusXM Canada's comedy channel, Canada Laughs, formerly Laugh Attack (channel 168), starting May 9.
Humble and Fred have been part of the Canadian radio community for over thirty years, and were voted Best Morning Show in Canada four times by the Canadian Music Industry, solidifying their name as two of the loudest and funniest voices in Canadian radio. The duo and their unapologetic style will soon be landing at SiriusXM for their next adventure: satellite radio, where they will broadcast an exclusive, unedited first-runshow live from Humble and Fred's "5-hour ENERGY Studio" every weekday.
"Fred and I love being on the radio together, we couldn't think of a better gig out there," said "Humble" Howard Glassman. "We were very successful on terrestrial radio and Internet radio, and the chance to reach a satellite audience is going to be a whole new party for us, and we can't wait."
"We're thrilled to have the compelling duo as part of our refreshed Canada Laughs channel," said Joe Thistel, Director, Sports and Talk Programming at Sirius XM Canada. "It's the perfect home for their uncensored brand of comedy and just adds to our loaded roster of Canadian talent."
The Humble and Fred Show enhances SiriusXM Canada's new slate of Canadian talent on Canada Laughs, including the popular and recently announced Hotzcast Radio, hosted by comedy icon Kenny Hotz of Kenny vs. Spenny fame. The Humble and Fred show will broadcast weekdays starting May 9 at 7:00 - 9:00 am ET, with replays at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm ET.
