Sat Radio Big for Xmas

Saturday, December 24, 2005

This is not big news but News 8 Austin, has a story and video here, about how big of a year it has been for both SIRIUS and XM. There is an AM Jock in the story that thinks that Sat Radio is not going to hurt AM radio in any way... "The growing number of subscribers doesn't worry KIXL 970 AM local traditional radio host Jim Phillips.

"I don't think it's going to affect us or worry us at all," Phillips said.

Phillips said traditional radio stations still provide something satellite radio doesn't.

"We relate to the people that we serve through live remote broadcasts. We try to inject a personal touch into the community. It's not like satellite radio where they are dealing with people all across the county. I don't see that there's a local connection in satellite radio like we have," Phillips said.

Phillips said the average satellite radio subscription cost of $15 a month is another reason he doesn't think traditional radio listeners will switch over."

Good luck Jim.. What is AM anyway?
