Los Angeles: British comedian Russell Brand may host his own radio show in the US soon.

The "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" star has been offered a multi-million dollar deal by Sirius Radio to host his own segment on the channel, which also boasts shows by actor-singer Jamie Foxx, rapper Eminem and radio personality Howard Stern, reports a news website.

"The Sirius deal is in its infancy, but Russell is up for it," said a source.

Brand`s last foray into radio ended in disgrace when he was forced to quit his popular show on Britain`s BBC Radio 2. Brand and fellow broadcaster Jonathan Ross faced a backlash in 2008 after they made a prank call to veteran actor Andrew Sachs.
