Oprah? On Sirius?
By TIM ARANGO
MARTHA and Oprah may soon be under the same roof.
Sirius Satellite Radio and its entertainment boss Scott Greenstein are in discussions about a pact that would bring Oprah Winfrey to Sirius alongside Martha Stewart on Sirius' high-profile entertainment lineup, a source told On the Money. A Sirius spokesman declined comment.The New York Post has this story about it today...
This rumor was flying around a few weeks back that XM was going to get Oprah...
Back in February the rumors were flying when Mel Karmazin hinted that Oprah Winfrey is on his talent wish list to join with Sirius at an analyst call.
All I can say is that I have been on the Phone all Morning talking to people I know, and no one is talking.. We will find out something, soon... It would not shock me if Sirius would try to get Oprah.. Just how much can they spend on her? I do know that XM was looking to "one up" the Martha thing... I would be nice PR for Sirius to get her... Something just smells fishy about this..
