Eminem Launches His Own Satellite Radio Station With Sirius

Published: 2004-07-13
"Once upon a time not too long ago, the Feds wanted all my music off the air," said hip-hop artist Eminem. But the artist has found an answer to that dilemma. Eminem – who gets his name from his initials M.M. – and his record label will be launching a radio station on the satellite network Sirius. Since Sirius stations are not bound by the same rules as the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) controlled ground stations, there are no restrictions on content. Eminem and Shady Records plan on taking advantage of this. "I can't wait to start dropping new material, exclusive tracks, and uncensored hip-hop featuring me and everyone else, freely saying whatever the hell we want," said Eminem.

The as yet named station hits to air in the fall. "While our channel will not be solely limited to Shady artists, we plan on delivering exclusive, obscure, and/or hard to find music from our acts," said Eminem manager Paul Rosenberg. The channel will also feature live broadcasts, unique interviews, and on air artist segments.
