Layoffs: At least 50 Sirius XM staffers downsized - Orbitcast It doesn't look too promising. Looks like they are decimating the decades channel personal on XM. And the one that stings the most is the loss of Bill Hutton who is the PD of Lucy. I was hoping that this channel would make it to Sirius. I do not like Lithium. Without Hutton there is 0 chance of that happening. I also think there is now 0 chance of XM versions of anything surviving. This is Sirus gutting its competitor. I just hope SiriusXM does not lose too many of those XM subscribers that its bottom line counts on.
