Howard Stern Siriusly Rocks Satellite Radio

From time to time I have been known to listen to Stern. Not because I particularly enjoy listening to him talk about body parts, going doody or throwing slices of bologna at womens butts. Primarily because I wanted to hear what was coming next.

I have had an XM subscription for about 3 1/2 years now. Actually multiple subscriptions. With Stern going to Sirius, I am moving? Good question. Am I considering the move because that's where Stern is? No. I am considering making the jump simply because Sirius seems to have more of what I listen to. The only thing that Sirius needs, is FOXnews.

Sirius currently has NBA, NFL, and beginning in 2007 they will have Nascar. I prefer the line up and genre of Sirius.

The only draw back is that currently all of my equipment is XM. Don't get me wrong, XM I like XM. Just going forward, I will certainly be looking at Sirius equipment.

There has been alot of "hoop la" about Stern going to Sirius and their paying him somewhere in the neighborhood of $500 million. Here is an excerpt from CNN-Netscape:

The rise of satellite radio is most obviously reflected in the dramatic subscriber figures of the two US companies that pioneered the service in 2001, XM and Sirius.

By the end of 2003, they enjoyed a combined total of just over one million subscribers. That figure ballooned to more than four million in 2004 and nine million last year, with an estimate for 2006 of 15 million.

One of the greatest spurs to growth was the 2004 coup when Sirius lured frank-talking radio host Howard Stern away from terrestrial radio giant CBS

Since signing Stern, who was infuriated by corporate pressure over the more graphic -- and usually sexual --- content of his show, Sirius has seen its base grow from 600,000 to 3.3 million people.

Tell me that's not a Sirius Return on Investment...

FOXnews Does It Again!

For the past 5 or 6 days, Fox News has done a phenominal job of covering the Gulf Coast disaster. They have had numerous individuals in the field covering this disaster. I would like to point out one Anchor/Host/Reporter: Shepard Smith. Shep has been there since before Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. Walking the walk and talking the talk. He consistantly reports with conviction and heart.

If there is a News Person of the Year Award, Shepard Smith deserves it. Keep up the great work Shep!
