I've been hesitating for a while now as to whether or not I should introduce this topic again. First, I would like to say that I have NO INFORMATION whatsoever that anything regarding Sirius and Oprah exists. What I do have, are a lot of little coincindences that I would like you, the reader to know about. I invite you to draw your own conclusions.
Recall that in Febuary 2005, Mel Karmazin made the statement that Oprah would be on his wish list. This was followed by a NY POST article ( I beleive in September) that stated Sirius was courting Oprah. Nothing came of it, so I like the rest of you, dismissed it.
About 2 weeks ago, Sirius announced it was going to be airing Hayhouse Radio on the Sirius' Lime network. We ran a story on it called "Books on Sirius." I noticed my wife was reading a book that was part of Oprah's recommended readings. So, just for the heck of it, I "googled" it, and there were several connections, yet most seemed to be either books Oprah recommended or authors whom had appeared on her show....not really enough there to get beaten up over by posting it....
This morning however, there appeared a most interesting article on the founder of the Lime Network. I'll give you three guesses at who they named in the article...you got it - Oprah! As well as several other prominent names including Disney...the parent company of ABC.
Could it be connected? Maybe, Maybe not. I look at xm's signings of Ellen and Tyra and think that may also be a clue. This was after all, a male dominated product. Suddenly, more effort is being put in to attract a larger female audience. You now know, what I know. Stay tuned....
