20 Satellite radio gives listeners a new digital option. Courtesy XM Satellite Radio. 32 S T A T E O F T H E F I F T H E S TA TE matters? Thank heaven for satellite radio where genuine choice thrives. ” XM programming chief Lee Abrams discounts the potential impact on his medium of terrestrial HD Radio. “I’m pretty sure these guys will screw up HD. ” To compound the competition for the listening audience, cable companies provide in-home music services for most of their subscribers. For example Comcast cable users receive more than 50 channels of music that are often quite niche specific.

Emotional sales pitches were rejected. Stations streamlined costs due to the economic slump. Airshifts were expanded and promotion budgets slashed. ” The total value of radio station sales declined 65 percent in a sixmonth period between 1990 and 1991, and radio revenues dropped 4 percent during the same period, according to statistics in Broadcasting magazine (September 9, 1991). All of this took place during a time when operating expenses rose. 8 billion was paid for 955 radio stations. Cash flow problems were the order of the day, and this resulted (as Ty Ford pointed out) in significant budgetary cuts.

This will be its saving grace and aid in its ability to withstand this frontal attack. ” Satellite radio is fee driven and offers a wide array of program options, which include an array of famous personalities, among them Howard Stern, Bob Dylan, and Martha Stewart. In all, XM Satellite Radio provides some 150 channels to subscribers while Sirius offers 120 channels.
