Mark Cuban's Radio Maverick will debut this summer and air Sundays from 12 - 2 pm ET exclusively on SIRIUS Stars, channel 102. Cuban will take calls from listeners and talk with prominent guests as part of a weekly discussion on sports, business and everyday life.

"I'm fired up about doing the show on SIRIUS," said Cuban. "I plan on raising hell and covering any and all topics that I think are interesting and taking no prisoners along the way."

"Mark Cuban is candid, animated and incredibly accomplished, having achieved extraordinary success at a young age in the worlds of business and sports," said Scott Greenstein, SIRIUS' President, Entertainment and Sports. "Radio Maverick will be a forum without limits, where he can talk to SIRIUS listeners about everything from the NBA to an MBA."

Even before he turned a long-struggling Dallas Mavericks team into a thriving NBA franchise, Cuban enjoyed an extraordinarily successful business career, with a history of building start-up ventures into multi-million and billion dollar enterprises.

After graduating from Indiana University in 1981, Cuban moved to Dallas where he co-founded MicroSolutions, a computer consulting business that he later sold to CompuServe. In 1995, frustrated at being unable to listen to Indiana basketball games in Dallas, he co-founded a company that would allow people to listen to radio broadcasts from around the country through the Internet. Broadcast.com became a leading provider of multimedia and streaming on the Internet and when the company was sold to Yahoo! in 1999, Cuban became a billionaire.

When Cuban purchased the Dallas Mavericks in 2000, his distinctive personality immediately set him apart from other owners. He was young, brash and innovative in his efforts to revitalize a franchise that had not produced a winning record since 1990. In his first full season as owner, the Mavs compiled a 53-29 record on their way to their first playoff berth in over a decade. Under Cuban's watch, the team has been a perennial contender and today is one of the NBA's most successful franchises.

In 2001, Cuban co-founded his latest venture, HDNet, an all high- definition television network on DIRECTV showing hi-def sports, movies and entertainment. He is a sought-after speaker and continues to be an active investor in cutting-edge technologies.

On SIRIUS Stars, SIRIUS' flagship talk station, Cuban will join a diverse lineup of hosts that includes Senator Bill Bradley, publisher Judith Regan and fitness expert Richard Simmons among others.

With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
