Even if you don't listen to them it's a big deal. And here is why.
-It leaves a potential opening for another show on the Opie and Anthony channel
-I suspect the Premium channels will be moved around HOPEFULLY to give more people access to them under a basic plan
-Now Ron and Fez will be heard to all SiriusXM subscribers and not just XM subs or Sirius subs with a Premium package
-It may signify that Opie and Anthony may have a bigger changeup, perhaps combining with other content on another channel
My personal guess is that now that Tim Sabean is the program director of Talk on SiriusXM that he sees and opportunity to get some Stern fans and other talk fans on board with some other content that they have been missing out on. And he just wants to make it easier for them to access it.
I think at this point, SXM needs to be planning for their post-Stern days. If he gets another contract it will be 3 times more money and probably just 1 day a week 4 weeks a year. I think this shows probably the first steps in that process.
