NEW YORK (January 22, 2013)--Sirius XM Radio and Comedy Central are teaming up to create a new comedy channel on the satellite radio service that will showcase the television network's stable of stand-up comics.
The companies said Tuesday that they hope to add the channel to Sirius' existing lineup of eight comedy channels this spring.
For Comedy Central, it's a continuing effort to spread its brand beyond TV.
It already packages comedy concert tours and sponsors shows at comedy clubs.
So far, big-name Comedy Central hosts Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are not part of the effort.
