Russell Brand may host radio show againJune 30th, 2010 - 2:07 pm ICT by IANS
Los Angeles, June 30 (IANS) British comedian Russell Brand may host his own radio show in the US soon.
The “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” star has been offered a multi-million dollar deal by Sirius Radio to host his own segment on the channel, which also boasts shows by actor-singer Jamie Foxx, rapper Eminem and radio personality Howard Stern, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“The Sirius deal is in its infancy, but Russell is up for it,” said a source.
Brand’s last foray into radio ended in disgrace when he was forced to quit his popular show on Britain’s BBC Radio 2. Brand and fellow broadcaster Jonathan Ross faced a backlash in 2008 after they made a prank call to veteran actor Andrew Sachs.
