More Satellite Radio Merger Support

A number of new individuals and organizations, including former New Jersey Senator and New York Knicks legend Bill Bradley, have come out in support of the impending Sirius/XM Radio merger.

"Merger synergies will decrease duplicative programming and result in expanded variety and more unique content unavailable anywhere else. Additionally, these synergies will also allow the companies to offer new programming options -- customers will be able to select packages that include content from both XM and SIRIUS. For the first time ever in subscription media, consumers will also have the option of a la carte programming, where they can truly tailor their radio to fit their listening tastes," wrote Bradley in a letter to the FCC.
