As usual, Karmazin told us very little that we did not already know. The tighter his rhetorical hold gets on Sirius XM, the more I hope, for the sake of the company's shareholders and survival, Mel gets pushed out before it's too late.
Sirius XM Equals AM/FM Radio
It's pretty easy to wrap your head around this analogy, particularly if you have followed terrestrial radio and Karmazin's time in it. Mel runs Sirius XM like a cluster of New York radio stations. He made the move from broadcast radio to satellite and, for all intents and purposes, got right to programming Sirius XM's channels like the standard Clear Channel (CCMO.PK) or CBS (CBS) offering.
