Sirius Radio launches 'Client 9 Radio'

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption=" Spitzer resigned his post Wednesday."]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.

    You can't take anything serious on sirius... they love controversy, they fuel divisiveness, oppression, and anything sexual. This has got to be the most absurd topic CNN could post.

    So what's the channel for Larry Craig, Mark Foley... oh wait, it must be more of that biased liberal news media. Ridiculous that there is even a channel dedicated to this. Can't anyone move on from anything in this country and focus on something that really matters?

    Sirius is well within their rights to have a, "Client 9" radio station. If you don't like it, simply don't listen to it, flip the station. It is that easy people.

    All Spitzer has to do is denounce those call girls.

    Charlotte, "a little tryst and bingo you're dead meat" seems to apply mainly to Democrats, not Republicans, does it not?
