Eminem to Launch Satellite Music Radio Channel

Controversial rapper Eminem will launch his widely expected satellite music radio channel called Shade 45 on October 28 with a live broadcast of a concert from New York, the Sirius network says.
In July, Eminem, his Shady Records label, Interscope Records and Sirius Satellite Radio said they would launch the channel, but a date had not been announced at that time.
Sirius recently made headlines when it signed another controversial figure, shock jock Howard Stern, to a five-year, $500 million (280 million pound) contract to move his show from Infinity Broadcasting to satellite radio, which is subscription-based and free from government restrictions on the content it airs.
Eminem has stirred controversy in the past with his fast-paced raps that are often construed as being homophobic and misogynistic. This week, pop music star Michael Jackson called a new Eminem video "demeaning and insensitive" because it portrays the singer in a negative way.
Infinity is a unit of media giant Viacom Inc.
