NASCAR continues “Radioactive” on YouTube


NASCAR Racing Centerthe daily studio show, which debuted in October 2009 and just concluded on June 11, will broadcast part of its show live. The highly popular “Radioactive” segment that the show would feature weekly will now be a feature on the NASCAR YouTube channel and on FOX's social and digital channels, according to a report by Adam Stern of Sports business journal.

The segment typically lasts four to six minutes and features the best sound from the teams' car radios.

In the last episode of Race Hub, host Shannon Spake announced the final show, “Radioactive,” saying, “Every Tuesday we had one of the main features of Hub, a little segment we like to call 'Radioactive.' We got to listen to the conversations between drivers, crew chiefs and spotters and it was always interesting.”

In a story posted by Nick Geddes of On3, he quotes Denny Hamlin from his podcast about the end of Race Hub:

“…Let’s just say my intuition tells me it will be replaced by something, be it NASCAR or one of the new partners or something, but I don’t like getting out FS1 for one hour a week. I don't love it, but it's not our decision. What I also understood was that this is a real loss of money for FOX. They spent quite a bit of money on it every year. It was a net loss. So yes, everyone has a business to run.”
