King of All Media Doesn’t Podcast
“Satellite radio is a pretty good technology that’s attracting a respectable audience primarily through excellent programming. But let’s be clear — satellite doesn’t hold a candle to podcasting, and not even Howard Stern can change that.
“Sirius signed Stern for $500 million, a deal that’s helped it attract nearly 3.5 million subscribers. It’s hard to argue with a half billion incentives. But — aside from cash — it’s hard to see what satellite could do for Stern that podcasting couldn’t do better.”
