Former WASHINGTON REDSKINS and NEW YORK JETS Hall of Famer JOHN RIGGINS returns to SIRIUS XM RADIO's SIRIUS NFL RADIO as co-host of "THE SIRIUS BLITZ" TUESDAYS through FRIDAYS (10a-1p ET). RIGGINS, who hosted on the channel in 2004-2006, will co-host with ADAM SCHEIN. He has been hosting at RED ZEBRA BROADCASTING's WASHINGTON sports stations, handling afternoons on the former TRIPLE X ESPN RADIO/REDSKINS RADIO and continuing as part of the station's REDSKINS coverage on the new WTEM-A-WWXT-WWXX (ESPN 980) trimulcast.
"If you’re an NFL fan, you’re not going to find a better place to talk football than SIRIUS NFL RADIO," said RIGGINS. "I’m excited to be back and am looking forward to being part of a show that I hope will be as fun and engaging for the listeners as I know it’ll be for me."
"JOHN has always been a fan favorite and he’s as entertaining on the air as he was when he was running the football," said SIRIUS XM RADIO SVP of Sports Programming STEVE COHEN. "We’re thrilled to have him back on SIRIUS NFL RADIO, where listeners around the country will be able to call in and talk to one of the NFL’s all-time greats."
