RIP a Livecast Quickie: Jose Mangin discusses the new Headbangers Ball

Jose Mangin (L) with former Ball host Rikki RachtmanDuring last week's edition of the RIP a Livecast we got a surprise phone call from one of our good friends, Jose Mangin of Sirius/XM. Jose, of course, has been doing a bit of hosting on Headbangers Ball so the conversation naturally went in that direction with us asking what his status is. What Jose said has spurred a ton of stories online (first reported at SMN, followed up at MetalInsider and then on MetalSucks). With all the rumors going around, we figured we would take the convo and extract all the talk about Headbangers Ball, so all of you who missed the Livecast can hear the below. Jose talks about the proposed new format and when we could see it start to happen. Note that we edited out some of the conversation in between the segments to just focus everything on the talk about the new show.

As we mentioned above, MetalInsider talked to Jose and he "he denies any official full-time launch of the show or his place in it" later adding "He does promise that some plans are in the works for “Headbangers Ball” in 2010, in some incarnation."

Don't miss an all new edition of the Livecast, tomorrow night at 10pm Eastern time right here and always available for download on our iTunes page.
