In this paper, we analyze the problem of steady, mixed convective, laminar flow of two incompressible, electrically conducting and heat absorbing immiscible fluids in a vertical porous channel filled with viscoelastic fluid in one region and viscous fluid in the other region. A uniform magnetic field is applied in the transverse direction, the fluids rise in the channel driven by thermal buoyancy forces associated with thermal radiation. The equations are modeled using the fully developed flow conditions. An exact solution is obtained for the velocity, temperature, skin friction and Nusselt number distributions. The physical interpretation to these expressions is examined through graphs and table for the shear stress and rate of heat transfer coefficients at the channel walls.
