Chris 'Mad Dog' Russo Has His Own Channel

Chris "Mad Dog" Russo stopped by to promote the launch of Mad Dog Radio on Sirius channel 123 - and said he was disappointed by Artie's Rolling Stone profile (and his absence this morning): "Howard's giving you a chance every day for four or five hours! Come in and have fun!" Howard asked how he should reach out to Artie, but Chris didn't know if it were possible: "It's almost like he thinks he's John Belushi." Chris took issue with Howard for even thinking about retiring in 2011: "You're gonna be here for a long time! Please!"

Chris also commented on the solidity of Sirius, saying the company has continued to build his new channel and arranged his trips so he could broadcast live from MLB Spring Training: "I don't get the impression that we're about to fall apart."
