TMZ is reporting that DirecTV Sports will launch a new daily nationally syndicated radio show co-hosted by former Howard Stern sidekick Artie Lange and comedian Nick DiPaolo. Reports say that Lange and DiPaolo have inked a three-year, multi-million dollar deal to host the talk show that will also be taped for later broadcast on DirecTV. The “Nick and Artie Show” is set to debut in a number of major markets, with additional affiliates set to come on board in the coming weeks. The duo first paired-up substituting for Tony Bruno who recently stepped away from his syndicated radio show to return to Philadelphia as a local host on Greater Media’s “97.5 The Fanatic.”
The new “Nick and Artie Show” is a mix of sports and entertainment from the perspective of two hard-core fans, Artie from New York and Nick from the Boston area, and will debut on Monday, October 3rd airing from 10pm-1am (ET) weeknights.
