NEW YORK (CNN) - For those who can't get enough of the sex scandal that brought down New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, Sirius Satellite Radio has launched what it is calling "Client 9 Radio," a special channel dedicated to covering all aspects of the Spitzer saga.
The new station began broadcasting Friday at 5 p.m. ET, the company announced. Programming will continue only until midnight on March 17, a statement from Sirius said.
Spitzer resigned Thursday after a federal probe looking into suspicious money transfers linked him to a prostitution ring.
He apologized for not living up to expectations, but did not admit to anything specific. Spitzer has not been charged with any crime.
The new channel was launched in response to strong interest shown by Sirius' audiences in the story, the company 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.

And we want to know why this country is going down the tubes....
God be with you and your family.
What a idiot. his wife is the one who will suffer, an his children.
What a loser.
Republicans are the same as democrats why should they say
anything their no better.
can they give this family a break ? There are a lot of issues more important to care about . I can't stand the media sometimes.
Wake up American media! Your lazy journalism will not sustain you. Leave the gossip to the useless and ignorant.
Here's an idea, "Irag war radio" dedicated to covering all aspects of the Iraq war. Or how about "Radio Afghanistan", "Venezuela radio", "Columbia Radio", "Iran radio", "North Korea radio" or "Radio China". Or do you think American's are too stupid to tune in?
The only other reputable commentators missing from this group are both Clintons.
The comment (sorry forgot your name) that media should be focused on Bush/Cheney destruction of everything in our lives, is right on target.
I guess no one was interested in hearing about "Diaper" fetish Rep. Vitter's prostitute stories.
keep doing what you are doing. his name should be posted on all networks just like the sex offenders are. if this is done it would be a deturent for all the people who are doing the same thing.. one of the rules if you get caught.
post a list of all the people who do this sort of thing along with their picture on national and local news
is there any picture of this guy without him biting his lip?
National Enquirer Radio
Didn't Bill Bennett waste 7 million dollars playing slot machines? Why should we take anyone like that seriously?
I'm sure Spitzer's millions will soften the," blow"? The thing that perplexes me, is his wife by his side. Perhaps their old fashioned mormons,and buddies with the Romney's?
Jerry Springer called he wants it ALL back.
Hello – this is another radical right wing tactic to help McCain win the election. The dollar is at record lows, oil at record highs no end in sight to a tanking economy that we might even have to stop using the "r" word and go to the much stronger "d" word.
So what should the voters be focusing on? Why a sex scandal of course! That's SO much more important than people's lives and livelihoods being trashed.
For Pete's Sake....Please leave the guy alone!
The other guys are envious of him.
He only broke the Eleventh Commandment
............. ..............................."Thou Shalt Not be Caught!
Why don't they have the Obama story front and center??????
This is a problem for America. Instead of denouncing this act that has pained a family and upset state, we capitalize, we sell sex and find glory in the downfall of power.
Lots of smart people on this blog. Seriously who cares about his guys private life. He was good at his job and that's all I care about.
Get over it people.
Let's get past this. No use to hearing about the garbage of Gov. Spitzer. We know he was wrong and that's that. How is rehashing it all over again going to benefit America??
The ex-Gov made a mistake. He got caught doing what comes naturally,big deal. I End!!!!!!!!
Geesh kick them in the ground when they are down. Just give it a rest!
Now THAT is family entertainment!
I can't wait 'til the movie comes out. Hopefully we'll have 3 versions like the Amy Fisher/Joey Buttafucco trist.
