SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio (Ch. 87/Sirius Ch. 210) will mark the 10th anniversary of its groundbreaking launch this Wednesday, July 1st. At 9 am ET that day, the channel will celebrate the milestone by airing the debut episode of a special 10-part series that will showcase many of the best moments and performers of the last 10 years in fantasy sports, and also honour some of SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio’s most passionate listeners.
A new broadcast will debut every Wednesday and Friday over the next five weeks, each focused on honouring great— and some not-so-great — moments and performances. In the first two episodes, SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio will unveil its all-decade teams for football and baseball, naming the best fantasy performers at each position in those sports. Subsequent shows will celebrate the best NFL offences for fantasy football, “sleepers,” clutch performers, rookies, and single-game performances, as well as the most memorable fantasy football “busts” and the most unfortunate “bad beats” that proved unlucky for fantasy owners.
See the broadcast schedule for SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio’s 10th Anniversary Diamond Awards Shows below. Each episode will be available On Demand on the SiriusXM app after its debut.
