XM Satellite Radio (XMSR) said it will air a sports talk show hosted by former Clinton aide James Carville and Luke Russert, the college-age son of Meet the Press anchor Tim Russert.

"This show will be another opportunity for me to engage in the back-and-forth debates on sports that, until now, Luke and I have limited to the stadium," said Carville. XM said the hour-long show will air weekly starting in March.

XM said the "concept" for the program "was born from the heated exchanges between Carville and Russert during various Washington Nationals home games."

XM described Carville as a political commentator for CNN and the younger Russert as being "currently a sophomore at Boston College." XM added of Luke Russert that "by the time he was 16, he had attended two Super Bowls, a World Series, five Major League Baseball (MLB) All-Star Games, an NBA final, four NBA All-Star Games, two NCAA Final Fours, an NHL Stanley Cup Final, a U.S. Open and The Preakness Stakes."
