I love my dad and I have been trying to get him to buy into Sirius/XM in terms of using it.
He listens to Classical and news radio format on terrestrial radio, and, like all of us, he hates commercials.
He hasn't been impressed with Sirius's classical stations.
But I know that if Sirius and Fox can pull this off, with MINIMAL ADVERTISING, it will bring alot of new subscribers into Sirius.
It needs to be better than what CBS does with its newsradio formats
I just got off the phone with the person of contact on the press release and he said many people have requesting this format....So it will be original radio and not audiocast (like what they are currently doing with CNN and Fox news)
So is the format going to be similar to Newsradio like CBS carries throughout the USA....i.e. WTOP in DC or WBBM-am in chicago?
I've been hoping for that for awhile.
I don't like fox but hopefully they will do this format justice. And I hope its radio and not piped in Television like CNN and Fox news is.
