TIM SABEAN NAMED PROGRAMMING DIRECTOR FOR HOWARD STERN CHANNELS ON SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO

Monday, October 10, 2005

Radio programming veteran Tim Sabean has been named programming director of Howard Stern's two SIRIUS channels. Stern is expected to start on SIRIUS in January 2006. Sabean will report to Scott Greenstein, SIRIUS President of Entertainment and Sports

Howard Stern and the launch of his channels are highly anticipated by Stern's massive audience, and Sabean, as program director, will oversee the development of the Stern channels. For more than a dozen years, Sabean programmed many of the stations that carried The Howard Stern Show. Stern will launch the next phase of his extraordinary broadcasting career on SIRIUS in January, and channels 100 and 101 have been designated as the new home for Howard Stern.

"No one is more suited to support Howard's vision for the channels than Tim Sabean," said SIRIUS's Greenstein. "He has demonstrated exceptional abilities in developing talent and achieving great success in multiple markets. And given his history with Howard, we're confident that Howard's radio revolution is on its way."

Tim Sabean's extensive radio career includes managing both AM and FM rock, oldies, news/talk and sports formats, in multiple US markets. As Vice President, Active Rock Programming at Infinity Broadcasting, the company he has served since 1991, Sabean supervised the programming for Infinity's rock stations WYSP-FM/Philadelphia, WBCN-FM/Boston, WRKZ-FM/Pittsburgh, KUFO-FM/Portland, KRSX-FM/San Antonio, WAZU-FM/Columbus, and WXRK-FM/New York.

Sabean simultaneously served as Vice President of Programming for Infinity's Philadelphia cluster: WYSP, WPHT-AM, WIP-AM, KYW-AM and WOGL-FM, as well as Operations Manager for WYSP. He was also involved with operations for Infinity stations WJFK-FM/Washington, DC, WXRK-FM/New York, WKRK-FM/Detroit and WCKG-FM/Chicago, and previously held programming positions at WCKG-FM, WLUP-FM and WLS-AM/FM in Chicago, and KLOS-FM/Los Angeles.

Sabean will begin with SIRIUS on October 17, 2005.
