SiriusXM has ended the nearly two-decade-long run of host Jude Angelini, known as Rude Jude. Hosting on Eminem’s Shade 45 channel since its start in 2004, November 16 marked the final episode of Jude’s The All Out Show. The changes come in the midst of a celebrity-heavy rebrand by SXM.
According to an interview with The Detroit News, Angelini was informed about the non-renewal of his contract by a company representative following his last show. Reflecting on the end of his journey, Angelini noted that he saw the termination coming, saying that his unfiltered approach to radio broadcasting no longer aligned with the company’s direction.
Throughout his career at Shade 45, Angelini engaged audiences with his bold, unscripted style, discussing a wide array of topics, from current affairs to personal anecdotes. His show, which he hosted from Metro Detroit since 2020, became known for its candid conversations and diverse range of guests, including celebrities, medical experts, and adult film stars.
Before joining Shade 45, Angelini gained fame on The Jenny Jones Show in the 1990s, where he first caught Eminem’s attention and ultimately led to his role at Shade 45. Looking forward, Angelini plans to continue his broadcasting career, potentially exploring platforms like Patreon to produce content on various topics, including cooking.
