Letterman Head Writers Heading To Radio


SiriusXM announced that Emmy Award-winning comedic writers Eric and Justin Stangel are joining the Opie Radio channel as creative contributors to the Opie and Jim Norton radio show. The Stangel brothers will also contribute to other SiriusXM shows. The brothers were executive producers and the longest-running head writers of The Late Show with David Letterman, beginning in 1997.

"This is going to be a lot of fun. It's already a great channel, and we are excited to help bring in new comedic voices to make it, and other shows, even better," said Eric Stangel. Justin Stangel  added: "Plus, it's radio so we don't even need to wear pants."

SiriusXM President and Chief Content Officer Scott Greenstein said: "SiriusXM is thrilled to welcome Eric and Justin Stangel, among the best comedic minds working today. Bringing this level of talent to SiriusXM and Opie Radio as writers and creative contributors will provide huge value to our subscribers through the exclusive material they create. We can't wait to hear how they help Opie Radio and other SiriusXM programming continue to grow."
