Dr. Laura Schlessinger, who said she was giving up radio back in August after her much-publicized N-word rant, has signed a deal with Sirius XM (which has previously broadcast a syndicated version of her terrestrial radio show), according to an AP report, published prematurely.

The HuffPost reports:

"Schlessinger will begin on Sirius XM on January 3, just three days after signing off from terrestrial radio."

Said Schlessinger in August: "Well, I'm here to say that my contract is up for my radio show at the end of the year and I have made the decision not to do radio anymore. The reason is: I want to regain my First Amendment rights. I want to be able to say what's on my mind, and in my heart, what I think is helpful and useful without somebody getting angry, some special interest group deciding this is a time to silence a voice of dissent, and attack affiliates and attack sponsors…I'm sort of done with that. I'm not retiring. I'm not quitting. I feel energized actually, stronger and freer to say the things that I believe need to be said for people in this country…I write books. I have blogs. I have my Web site…This is the area — this is the era of the Internet."

According to the report, Schlessinger's new show will be three hours long, broadcast daily.
