Gun Talk Syndicated on Sirius Satellite Radio

Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk®, a nationally-syndicated radio show, will now be available on the Sirius satellite radio system in the U.S. and Canada. Sirius merged with XM satellite radio last year, and Gun Talk, which has been airing on XM, now has been added to Sirius. Gun Talk now will be carried on the “Sirius Too” channel, which is found at channel 108 on the Sirius system, and channel 139 on XM receivers. A complete list of stations carrying Gun Talk, as well as links to streaming audio and download sites, can be found at www.GunTalk.com.

Guns and Shooting Interest Millions of Listeners
The combined subscriber base of Sirius-XM is 19.1 million listeners. “The merger of Sirius and XM forced a lot of programming changes,” said Tom Gresham, host of the show, “and many fine talk shows have been dropped. We’re delighted that we not only remain on XM — where we have a huge group of loyal listeners — but the addition of the Sirius system to Gun Talk’s distribution is huge.”

How Gun Talk Radio Started — An Idea Born at SHOT Show
Back in January, 1995, Tom was attending the SHOT Show, the huge annual trade show for the firearms industry, when a casual conversation lead to the idea of a radio talk show about guns. Only six weeks later he was on the air, being beamed to three satellites and 20 radio stations.

He didn’t know Tom…or how many gun owners there are in the U.S. (there’s a gun in almost half the homes in the country). Now, 14 years later, Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk® is carried in 50 markets across the U.S., on Sirius and XM satellite radio services, and is heard by thousands every week via web streams. Gresham has been included in Talkers Magazine’s list of 100 Most Important Radio Talk Show Hosts In America!
