Sirius launches 'Client 9 Radio'

  • Satellite radio station to be all-Spitzer scandal, all the time

NEW YORK (CNN) -- For those who can't get enough of New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer's sex scandal, Sirius Satellite Radio has launched "Client 9 Radio," a channel dedicated to covering all aspects of the Spitzer saga.

The new station began broadcasting at 5 p.m. ET Friday, the company announced.

Programming will continue only till midnight on Monday, a statement from Sirius said.

Spitzer announced his intention to resign Thursday after a federal probe looking into suspicious money transfers linked him to a prostitution ring.

In documents associated with the investigation, the governor is identified as "Client 9."

Spitzer apologized in his announcement for not living up to expectations, but did not admit to anything specific. He has not been charged with any crime.

His resignation becomes effective Monday.

The new channel was launched in response to strong audience interest in the story, Sirius said.

It will offer a "forum for this national conversation," where listeners are invited to call in and discuss all aspects of the story.

Additionally, "Client 9 Radio" will offer segments produced with Sirius commentators and experts, such as Judith Regan and Bill Bennett, the statement said.
