Howard Stern Really IS The King Of All Media
Stern has proven a real game changer in the world of satellite radio. Since he's joined Sirius, they've been on fire -- finally adding more subscribers in the last quarter than XM did. And that rival -- XM -- has hit a wall. First XM said they'd hit 9 million subscribers by the end of the year, now they're saying somewhere between 7.7 mil and 8.2 mil. First they said they'd reach a positive cash flow in the fourth quarter and throughout 2007. Now, uh, maybe not. If only they'd merge with Sirius, you could get ALL sports (including XM's baseball and Sirius's most everything else), Bob Dylan (on XM) and Stern (on Sirius) and I might just buy the darn thing.
