NAACP announces support for Satellite Radio Merger

NAACPAn extremely influential group has today announced its support for the Sirius/XM merger: the NAACP.

The the nation's largest and most widely-recognized grassroots civil rights organization, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) today has officially endorsed the pending merger.

"We are extremely pleased to enjoy the support of such a well-respected and influential organization in the African American community," said Gary Parsons, Chairman of XM Satellite Radio and Mel Karmazin, CEO of Sirius Satellite Radio, in a joint statement.

In a letter to the FCC, NAACP Director Hilary Shelton affirmed, "We are convinced that the pending Sirius-XM merger will be a positive development for consumers. More diverse, accessible and appealing options at lower prices in satellite radio will help further expand the reach of this medium."

The NAACP also applauded both companies for maintaining "a strong commitment to diversity" and utilizing "significant resources to recruit and retain minority talent and leadership at all levels." Both XM and Sirius offer several music and entertainment channels (like XM's The Power (ch 169) and The Foxxhole (ch 106) on Sirius) which cater to the diverse tastes of African-Americans.

"We have no doubt that a merged satellite radio company would continue, and in fact, strengthen its commitment to diversity in employee recruitment and retention, while expanding its pool of diverse contractors and vendors," added Shelton.

While there have been a wave of groups supporting the merger, none have the level of recognition that the NAACP and its membership of over 400,000 nationwide holds. This is a huge achievement for merger supporters.

In exchange for their support XM/Sirius executives offered to let the negros actually touch a satellite. "Let them touch those things!"

When the new combined radios come out, they'll only have to steal half as many to hear both services.

SIRIUS/XM Welcome NAACP Support for Satellite Radio Merger
Thursday June 28, 3:04 pm ET
Nation's Largest Civil Rights Organization Calls Merger a Positive Development for African-American Consumers

WASHINGTON, June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- SIRIUS Satellite Radio (Nasdaq: SIRI - News) and XM Satellite Radio (Nasdaq: XMSR - News) today announced the endorsement of The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the nation's largest and most widely-recognized grassroots civil rights organization with over 400,000 members, for their pending merger.

"We are extremely pleased to enjoy the support of such a well-respected and influential organization in the African American community," said Gary Parsons, Chairman of XM Satellite Radio and Mel Karmazin, CEO of SIRIUS Satellite Radio, in a joint statement.

In a letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), NAACP Director Hilary Shelton affirmed, "We are convinced that the pending Sirius-XM merger will be a positive development for consumers. More diverse, accessible and appealing options at lower prices in satellite radio will help further expand the reach of this medium."

Both XM and SIRIUS offer numerous music and entertainment channels of interest to the diverse taste of African-Americans. For instance, XM's "The Power" offers thought and opinion on social, political and economic issues from an African-American perspective on the nation's only 24/7 radio channel programmed by and for the African-American community, while SIRIUS' "Foxxhole", hosted by Jamie Foxx, offers exclusive 24/7 programming from Urban Comedy to radio theater.

In their letter to the FCC, the NAACP also applauded both companies for maintaining "a strong commitment to diversity" and utilizing "significant resources to recruit and retain minority talent and leadership at all levels."

"We have no doubt that a merged satellite radio company would continue, and in fact, strengthen its commitment to diversity in employee recruitment and retention, while expanding its pool of diverse contractors and vendors," added Shelton.

SIRIUS and XM look forward to continuing their strong working relationship with the NAACP to provide high-quality programming to an even wider audience of African-American listeners and other communities of color following the merger.

Additional information regarding the merger can be found at http://www.SIRIUSmerger.com and http://www.XMmerger.com.
