Claire B Lang Staying With XM

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Claire B. Lang, the celebrated on-air host on XM's NASCAR radio channel, has entered into a new, multi-year agreement with XM.

Claire's fans will continue to hear her daily, three-hour racing show each weekday afternoon on XM. Claire will anchor her show on XM Channel 144 from 4-7 p.m. ET. Starting in January 2007, channel 144 will become XM's newly-launched sports talk channel XM Sports Nation.

Claire is revered among motorsports fans for her knowledge and passion for the sport, as well as her strong rapport with NASCAR drivers. She joins NASCAR superstars Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie Johnson, the sport's reigning champion, as on-air hosts of shows exclusively on XM Sports Nation.

"Integrity, respect and the fair telling of the stories of this sport to the loyal fans who follow it are truly what matter most to me," Lang said. "I am proud of having been a part of XM and channel 144 from the beginning and am staying at XM where the sport's first satellite radio channel came to life.

"I look forward to continuing to give both the casual and long-time race fans more than they expect each and every day that I get behind the microphone. I am inspired by the challenge to continue to transport listeners to places they have never gone before as I take coverage of this sport on the road again -- now on an even larger sports platform."

Claire will continue her afternoon racing show as well as expand her reach hosting unique specials and in-depth features across XM programming.

"NASCAR fans love Claire because she knows the sport, she's passionate about the sport, and she gets the candid answers to the big questions," said Eric Logan, executive vice president of programming for XM Satellite Radio.

"We put the fans first, and the fans want Claire. She has become a breakout star over the last five years on XM, and we're thrilled that she'll be on XM for years to come. It's all part of our commitment to covering motorsports every single day on XM Radio."
