First off, does Sat Rad really need this/her? I guess that means Good Morning America Radio is getting cut... Will she be a sucess in the uncensored radio format, or will she be too over the top for most listeners?

I personally say :eek:

I don't really care. I certainly am not going to listen and I would not subscribe to hear her. But perhaps some will. Thats the beauty of satrad ... it has more than 1 channel.

Hey...it's something different, and if it brings in a few more subs, it's all good. She's not my cup of tea, however.

I won't be listening, either, but I am very happy when SiriusXM expands its range of talk programs and music channels. It's the variety that it most important, on sat radio. We certainly don't want SiriusXM to single out a specific audience; we want them to target as wide an audience as technologically and financially possible.

So, it's good news. It would have been bad news if they had replaced Stern with O'Donnell... :rofl: (I'm not a fan of either one, but I'm sure Stern attracts more customers!)
