The XM/Sirius merger is on the clock

No, we’re not back to our lame “on the clock” anthology before the NFL draft…. but the XM/Sirius merger really is on the clock. The FCC has accepted the application for the merger, and now it has started the unofficial 180-day period of reviewing the deal.

Comments and petitions for and against the deal are due July 9 and responses are due on July 24.

The NAB is against the merger, but it has support from various minority groups, who feel the merger will represent more programming opportunities.
