SiriusXM announced today that Houston Rockets guard and 17-year NBA veteran Jason Terry will host a new weekly show on its exclusive 24/7 NBA channel starting tomorrow, June 1 (7:00 – 8:00 pm ET), the night before the start of the NBA Finals.
The Runway with Jason “The Jet” Terry will air every Wednesday on SiriusXM NBA Radio, which is available nationwide on satellite radios (Sirius channel 207, XM channel 86) and on the SiriusXM app. Terry and co-host Justin Termine will take calls from listeners across the country and discuss the headline news from around the NBA, as Terry shares his perspective on the league as an active player and longtime veteran.
“I’m very honored and excited to join the SiriusXM NBA Radio family,” said Terry.
“Going back to his days as an All-American at the University of Arizona, Jason has been entertaining basketball fans across the country with his play on the court for two decades. He’s also a tremendous analyst of the game, and now he’ll have the opportunity to showcase that talent on SiriusXM NBA Radio,” said Steve Cohen, SiriusXM’s SVP of Sports Programming. “As an active player, a NBA Champion and a 17-year veteran, he brings an exceptionally enlightened perspective to the channel, and we’re thrilled to have him share that with our listeners.”
One of the NBA’s greatest shooters, Terry has scored 18,408 points in his career, and his 2,169 three-point field goals made is ranked number one among all active players and third on the all-time list. He won a NBA championship with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011 and was named the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year in 2009. Selected 10th overall by the Atlanta Hawks in the 1999 NBA Draft out of the University of Arizona, he played five season with the Hawks, eight seasons with the Mavericks, a season each with the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets, and is going into his third season with the Houston Rockets.
After his senior season at Arizona he was named a First Team All-America player by the Associated Press, was selected as the National Player of the Year by Sports Illustrated and CBS, and was a finalist for the John R. Wooden, USBWA/Oscar Robertson and Naismith National Player of the Year awards. He also won a NCAA Championship with the Wildcats in 1997, his sophomore season.
In 2000 he began the Jason Terry Foundation, which focuses on providing inner city youths with the opportunity to further their education beyond high school.
Terry joins a roster of analysts that features several former players and coaches including Antonio Daniels, Danny Granger, Brendan Haywood, Eddie Johnson, Tim Legler, Rick Mahorn, Brian Scalabrine, as well as hosts Mark Boyle, Ric Bucher, Tom Byrne, Noah Coslov, Brian Geltzeiler, Jared Greenberg, Jonathan Hood, Frank Isola, Jason Jackson, Joel Meyers, Justin Termine, Gerald Brown and Howie C.
