From “The Street.com” -
XM Satellite Radio signed New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter as a spokesman.
The Washington, D.C., pay radio company said Jeter would promote XM’s baseball broadcasts and make regular guest appearances on XM’s baseball channel. The deal also includes a partnership with the Turn 2 Foundation, the nonprofit organization founded by Jeter to promote healthy, drug-free lifestyles and academic achievement for young people.
“To help extend the lead of a winning team like XM is a terrific opportunity, especially since I am a huge XM Satellite Radio fan,” Jeter said. “I am excited to share my enthusiasm for XM’s unmatched Major League Baseball programming and unprecedented choice in news, talk, entertainment and, of course, commercial-free music.”
Somehow, knowing how “safe” Derek is with his public comments, I doubt that XM’s verison of Kenny “Pig Vomit” Rushton will need to sweat this one too much.
