He deserves a raise:
*He brought in millions of subscribers thanks to Howard.
*I see more and more businesses that have Sirius or XM instead of local radio.
*Honestly, Sirius/XM's product is still eons better than regular radio.
*If Sirius/XM is hurting, it's because of the FCC. Remember, it took the two longer to merge than any oil company in history.
However, the biggest obstacle he has, IMO is convincing Howard to re-sign when his contract's up in two years.
$250,000 sounds just about right to me.
