I wrote this brief post for my telecommunications blog back in 2010 (which I no longer use anymore). I thought it would be a fitting post introduction here.

The media program that I feel strongly about is SiriusXM Satellite Radio. On February 19, 2007, Sirius Radio and XM Satellite Radio combined into a single satellite radio in the United States. SiriusXM offers customers more than 160 channels of music, news, sports, and talk. The best part of all is the stations are commercial-free!

I have to say there is nothing quite more annoying than being stuck in downtown traffic with nothing to listen to but a sales pitch or a boring radio announcer droning on about a useless topic. As a SiriusXM subscriber, its nice to just listen to nonstop music without having to change channels or CDs constantly. SiriusXM transmits all types of digital radio services. The other annoying thing about radio stations is losing the signal while outside of the station's zoning. SiriusXM listeners can listen to their favorite stations anywhere without minor interruptions. The Apple iPhone and Blackberry offers the downloadable SiriusXM application with just the press of a button.

SiriusXM has about 18 millions listeners and growing as of 2009. The enhanced sound quality and specialized programs have certaintly changed the way we listen to radio. Below is the recent 2009 major marketing SiriusXM commercial. SiriusXM has not had a major commercial since 2009.
