Here’s a nice overview of the (finally) approved Sirius/XM merger from the Wall Street Journal:
What I find most interesting about this is the palpable sense of frustration and disgust you can read in the tone of both these anchors, who are indifferent to the outcome of the approval decision itself. There’s something wrong with this kind of process, they say.
I think this is the taste left in the mouths of many observers and it speaks well neither for the NAB nor the FCC.
I also like the comment that radio’s response should be to “get better programming.” Okay, we’ll get right on that. Thanks for thinking that one through.
