DIRECTV's "Nick and Artie Show" going national


The new nationally-syndicated Sports Talker flagshipping from Clear Channel’s The Sports Animal WINZ-AM Miami features comedians Nick DiPaolo and Artie Lange delivering a humorous take on Sports and entertainment—likely aimed at competing with Westwood One’s “The Robert Wuhl Show.”

The show is distributed via Premiere. Lange is best known for his work on MADtv and the Howard Stern Show; and Nick DiPaolo, who has made frequent appearances on the Stern show and Comedy Central.

The show currently airs Monday-Friday from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. ET and is streamed live on the show’s website, Next year, DIRECTV plans to simulcast the radio program on its Audience Network, joining The Dan Patrick Show, which began its simulcast on DIRECTV in 2009.
