NEW YORK – SiriusXM Radio is devoting a channel to the Charlie Sheen affair.
The satellite radio service announced Friday that it has created Tiger Blood Radio, a 24-hour limited-run channel it says will examine the news, facts and media frenzy surrounding the actor and his hit CBS series, “Two and a Half Men.”
Tiger Blood Radio will air from Saturday at 6 a.m. Eastern time until Sunday at 6 a.m. on both the Sirius and XM systems, the company said.
Sheen has recently mounted a public campaign to disprove that he is a drug-using, reckless playboy. He is fighting the decision by his show’s studio and network to shut down production of the series. Meanwhile, he is facing a battle for custody of his 23-month-old twin sons.
