SiriusXM announced today that it has reached a new four-year contract with popular sports media personality Adam Schein. Schein will continue to host his daily all-sports show, Schein on Sports, every weekday (9 am – noon ET) exclusively on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio channel, which is available to SiriusXM subscribers nationwide in their cars (channel 82) and on the SXM app.
Schein will also continue to host his newly rebranded SiriusXM podcast, now titled Rise and Schein, which features compelling long form interviews with athletes and celebrities. A new episode of Rise and Schein, featuring a conversation with Molly Qerim, is available now. Listeners can hear it here or wherever they get their podcasts. Hall of Fame basketball coach Jim Boeheim, who recently retired after a 47-year career at Syracuse, is scheduled be Adam’s guest on this week’s episode.
“I am so incredibly elated and fired up to re-sign another long-term deal with SiriusXM, my radio home for the last 18 years,” said Schein. “I love working with the amazing people at SiriusXM. I truly appreciate the platform, power and prestige of hosting Schein On Sports every weekday on Mad Dog Sports Radio. It’s my passion. And I am thrilled to host our rebranded Rise and Schein podcast, a show to remind people why they love sports while interviewing the people in sports and entertainment that fascinate me the most and share that excitement and joy.”
“Adam is an exceptional talent with a passion for sports that is obvious every time he cracks open the mic,” said Eric Spitz, VP of Sports Programming, SiriusXM. “SiriusXM has been his home since 2004 and it has been a thrill to see his star rise over these last two decades. We’re thrilled to extend our great relationship with Adam, keep him as a mainstay on our Mad Dog Sports Radio channel, and ensure our listeners continue to get his one-of-a-kind brand of sports talk on a daily basis.”
SiriusXM was Adam’s first national media platform, and he was the first talk show host heard on the SiriusXM NFL Radio channel when it launched in 2004. Adam hosted alongside legendary former coaches and players including John Madden, John Riggins, Rich Gannon and Solomon Wilcots, anchored SiriusXM’s Sunday pre-game program during the NFL season, and also served as host for SiriusXM’s live NFL Draft coverage. In 2013, Schein made the move from SiriusXM NFL Radio to SiriusXM’s all-sports Mad Dog Sports Radio channel, expanding the scope of his commentary and coverage with the launch of Schein on Sports. He began hosting his SiriusXM podcast in 2019.
Schein graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications – a school renowned for producing some of the most successful broadcasters in the business – in 1999. He was inducted to Syracuse University’s WAER Hall of Fame in 2021. As his star has risen in the sports media world Schein has expanded his presence on TV as well. He hosts multiple shows on CBS Sports Network, including his own daily weeknight show, Time to Schein, as well as NFL Monday QB and That Other Pregame Show, both of which he has hosted for over a decade. He has been a columnist for NFL.com since 2012.
