Stars from the worlds of action sports, television and music will be taking over SIRIUS Satellite Radioâ€™s Faction channel 28 on a weekly basis, when the new Faction program Hostile Takeover launches on Friday, December 16.

Mike V summed up the attitude of all the upcoming guests on Hostile Takeover by saying, â€œIâ€™m really looking forward to connecting with my fans, no holds barred and uncensored. Iâ€™ll tell some stories from the road, play some of my favorite tunes, and have a great time on SIRIUS Faction 28.â€�
Hostile Takeover launches on Friday, December 16 at 7 pm ET and will be heard every Friday at that time, exclusively on SIRIUSâ€™ Faction channel 28.
