The Fox News Talk channel, which offers news, analysis, listener call-ins, and commentary from Fox News personalities such as Bill O’Reilly, Tony Snow, John Gibson and Alan Colmes, among others, will air on channel 145.

“We are very pleased to have reached an agreement with Fox to bring back its news service to Sirius and to add what is a compelling talk channel,” said Scott Greenstein, Sirius President of Entertainment and Sports, in a statement. “Our goal was to negotiate a new agreement that would be in the best interest of our subscribers and shareholders, and the new agreement fulfills that objective.”
