UPDATE: Don and Mike to SIRIUS?

Friday, November 18, 2005

UPDATE: A DC radio insider emailed me today, and told me that there is a leak, and the info leaked is not right. I was asked to remove this story. I will not remove the post, but I will say the following;
It looks for sure that Don and Mike have been talking with one of the Satellite Radio companies.. This same thing happened last week when this story first started... Sirius or XM, or at all? Insiders still say something is up... Now this post did get over 5k hits today so this email could be a way to just control these rumors . So we will to let this play out.. We do post rumors on this blog, but only ones that we feel have some merit or that are all over the net, Our sources could be wrong on all this, or a little wrong about some details... but then again they could be right and now we are being asked to back track?!?.. . So as we posted earlier this is a rumor until something official comes from the Don and Mike show or SIRIUS... It will be only a rumor..

... it looks like Don and Mike will be may join SIRIUS in the spring. (no official word yet, so please still view this as a “reliable rumor�) GSI had reported about this a week ago, as did dcrtv.com We are told by sources and on air comments made, that Don and Mike may have signed a three and a half year deal with SIRIUS. (Estimated to be valued at over 5 million in cash and stock), SIRIUS chief Mel Karmazin is a fan of the show, and worked with them in his Infinity days. Don & Mike may join SIRIUS in late spring. Don & Mike may announce the details of this deal on the air in early December 2005. There is some other sources in DC talking about some changes to WJFK-FM the current flagship of Don and Mike. It is also likely that Don and Mike will Join the SIRIUS Stars//103 line up. We will follow this breaking story and update it as needed.
- This rumor was also posted by DCRTV a week or so ago.
- Also something here on the Don and Mike page
- Thanks for the link Kurt! Someone else who has gotten the same info as I, HERE
- This could be a big stunt by Don and Mike, but day by day more things are coming to light...

This is great news...but I'm wondering what the sources are. DCRTV and RadioGodsForum have been speculating for several days, is there something more concrete than that you're hearing? I'm actually happier about this than Stern's arrival...

What makes me think this is still less than a "reliable rumor" is this:
DCRTV hears that if Don and Mike do a deal with NYC's Sirius, they'll still be based in DC and still be heard afternoons on WJFK-FM.
After all this hoopla with Howard and Sirius, Infinity will just play nice with Sirius and share Don and Mike?

Dorks! I guess that you don't listen to the show often enough to figure out that D&M are playing you like a retard! Siriusly though, they do have an iron clad contract with a very large corporate entity that would cost millions to break, just to be heard by how many people? Come on...! I'm a huge fan but even I won't buy a satalite radio when I can subscribe to their free show on JFK next year. I'm sending my money to their website next month so I can be the first to hear them on JFK when they go to a subscriber based audience.

Gotta have my D&M!

Seems pretty odd to run Don and Mike on Sirius and Infinity's WJFK, don't you think? They will be on one or the other, not both. These two companies are not in the business of sharing talent. Thanks for the insider info as it is nice to hear what might be happening behind the scenes. Even though it might not be the actual truth, these items do shed light into the outgoing drama that is playing outside of the public's view...

HAHA! The best part is you Sirius Dopes are just giving XM great promos for D&M. That's where they're headed!


O&A PARTY ROCK!

I can't see Don & Mike on the same XM Channel (XM 202) that Opie & Anthony (and Jimmy Norton too) are on. I heard O&A slam D&M just the other day. By the way, I am a big fan of both radio shows. Don and Mike are still the kings (they dethroned Steve and Garry) but O&A&SweetTits&Ramone are really a quality show also.
