Throughout the long period that the XM-Sirius merger had been pending, Lenny Freed sent us numerous emails offering to bet big bucks that the deal would go through. We’re not the gambling type, but we will let him gloat a bit.
Over the next few years, satellite radio will become the driving force in the radio industry and as it is installed in millions of automobiles, satellite radio will become the dominant force and replace terrestrial radio. Just look how much progress has been made in the last 2 1/2 years since Stern came on the air in 1/06. This merger is a great benefit to consumers and the only ones who will suffer is terrestrial radio. DEAL WITH IT!
