XM, Sirius to merge

81 posts in this topic

XM and Sirius already started their process of laying off some people to merge some of the stations. I know a few in different genres including jazz that have just now got laid off. Sad for those who thought they were life-ers.

Indeed sad news... No such thing as a "life-er" in radio though, I hate to say.

I do agree about "life-er". 8 years is quite a long time in one organization. The music industry is a tough one.

"The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs. There is also a negative side." - Hunter S. Thompson

As far as I'm concerned it is still a good value and a great source for music and entertainment.

They will be fine.

Earlier this month, a deal between Internet radio providers and the record labels at long last provided some clarity around the long-term prospects for the medium. Big players like Pandora now pay a per-song fee or percent of revenue on each song streamed – whichever is higher – while smaller services need only pay a revenue share.
