Country Comes To Manhattan - Sirius Coverage

Friday, November 11, 2005 has a story about the CMA awards in NYC this week. It brings up the point that NYC has not had a full blown country music station for almost 10 years! "New York's media mavens might have a better sense of country, if only they could hear the music on their morning commutes. But even that's not as bad as it sounds: Pick up a satellite radio subscription from either Sirius Satellite Radio or XM Satellite Radio and you can have your pick of country genres, from current hits to blue grass--each with their own 24-hour channel." (read more from Forbes) Both Sirius and XM officials say they have New York subscribers who are paying for precisely that reason. Both Sat radio companies are cashing in on this years Country Music Awards (CMA). XM has let WNYE-FM (NYC owned) broadcast XM's country station over FM, and Sirius will cover the celebrations of the CMAs taking place in New York, with the legendary Grand Ole Opry broadcasted from New York City's Carnegie Hall on Monday, November 14th. It will be broadcast on SIRIUS via WSM / Grand Ole Opry channel, live at 8 pm ET. SIRIUS will also take listeners right into the backstage area of Madison Square Garden during the CMAs for exclusive artist interviews on Tuesday night, starting at 6 pm ET on channel 60, New Country. SIRIUS will also broadcast the 39th annual Country Music Awards LIVE from NYC this Tuesday. More on that at
