Chris Russo Goes Nuts

Since he started with Sirius XM last year, Chris Russo has tried to develop his Mad Dog Channel into a big entity on the satellite radio service.

However, when you compare it to Howard 100 or Martha Stewart Living, it really doesn’t hold a candle. I have listened to it since it began, but to be honest, it’s not my first destination on the service.

On Thursday, he decided to go on the air and blast the staff that he put together including my friend, Andy Gresh. In addition, he fired his own program director, Steve Torre.

Russo went off on a 10 minute tirade on Friday and you can hear it right here.

Naturally, his staff was not happy with him over this. I’ll see if I can get reaction.
