SIRIUS XM Radio announced that NFL legend Joe Namath will host a weekly talk show on SIRIUS NFL Radio throughout the 2010 NFL season.

The Broadway Blitz with Joe Namath will debut Friday, September 17 (2:00-3:00 pm ET) and air every Friday on SIRIUS NFL Radio, available nationwide on SIRIUS channel 124 and XM channel 124 for subscribers with the “Best of SIRIUS” programming package. Namath and co-host Adam Schein will discuss the latest news from around the NFL, look ahead to the upcoming weekend’s matchups, and take calls from NFL fans around the country.

“It’s a real thrill for me to be joining SIRIUS NFL Radio and talking about the game I love with fans all over this country,” said Namath. “I’ve been involved with football a long time and I still get excited about every season like I did when I was lacing up my cleats as a kid in Pennsylvania. I’ve got a lot of wisdom from my time in the NFL and a lot of thoughts about today’s players and teams. It’ll be fun to share them with our listeners and I look forward to hearing what they think as well.”

The show will replay each week on SIRIUS NFL Radio Friday at 11:00 pm ET, Saturday at 7:00 am ET and Sunday at 6:00 am ET.

“Joe Namath is a sports and cultural icon. He was one of the NFL’s most exciting players and today remains one of the game’s most intriguing and enduring personalities,” said Scott Greenstein, SIRIUS XM’s President and Chief Content Officer. “Joe brings an incredible wealth of football knowledge and experience to SIRIUS NFL Radio and will share his insight and opinions with our listeners every Friday.”

Namath is best remembered for his role in the New York Jets’ stunning 16-7 upset of the heavily favored Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III, and the famous pre-game guarantee of victory which he then backed up with an MVP performance. Throughout his 13-year career, from 1965 through 1977, he was one of the game’s most exciting, proficient and publicized quarterbacks. He completed 1,886 passes for 27,663 yards and 173 touchdowns in 12 seasons with the Jets and a final season with the Los Angeles Rams. In 1967, he became the first quarterback to pass for more than 4,000 yards in one season and, remarkably, he accomplished this while playing a 14-game schedule.

Drafted out of the University of Alabama, who he led to a National Championship in 1964 under legendary coach Bear Bryant, Namath was named the AFL Rookie of the Year in 1965. He earned all-league accolades four times in his career (1967, 1968, 1969, and 1972), was named to the all-time AFL honor team in 1969 and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985.

Off the field, Broadway Joe re-defined the concept of the celebrity-athlete, starring in several memorable ad campaigns, setting new fashion standards and acting in a number of television shows and movies.

Today, Joe connects with his fans through his new website, www.broadwayjoe.tv, Twitter (twitter.com/realjoenamath), and Facebook. Check out his thoughts on the NFL, The New York Jets and of course the Alabama Crimson Tide.
