Russell Brand Offered Multi-Million Dollar Radio Gig


Russell Brand


The comedian who was forced to quit his popular BBC Radio 2 in 2008, is being considered to host a show at Sirius Radio.

British comedian Russell Brand is set to make a triumphant return to the airwaves - the funnyman is reportedly in talks to host his own U.S. radio show. Bosses at Sirius Radio have reportedly offered Brand a multi-million dollar deal to host his own segment on the satellite station, which boasts shows by Jamie Foxx, Eminem and shock jock Howard Stern.

A source tells Britain's The Sun newspaper: "The Sirius deal is in its infancy but Russell is well up for it. He has been given the hard sell about how they could make him the new Howard Stern."

Brand's last foray into radio ended in disgrace when he was forced to quit his popular show on the U.K.'s BBC Radio 2. The comedian and fellow broadcaster Jonathan Ross faced a backlash in 2008 after prank calling veteran actor Andrew Sachs and leaving a voicemail message detailing Brand's sexual encounter with his granddaughter.
