    Just wanted to join in on that fun conversation

    What is going down "within the next week" that is affecting Sirius management?

    It's great if you want your edgy morning talk show turned into a 4 hour commercial for the latest theater or boob tube dreck that they'll need pushed on all platforms.

    Yeah I'm guessing "Franchise O&A" wouldn't fly with the new bosses

    OTOH, a TV/movie company might be able to wrap their minds around the "visual element" of a radio show.

    Ron and Fez has been full on brokered at least once that I can think of. That horrible Ashley Madison CEO interview was totally bought and paid for. Having done shows like that, I can spot them a mile away now.

    looks like Liberty media is trying to take over

    have over 40% and tried to get FCC to make them controlling partner and were shot down

    apparently they never went to math class

    yeah, if it truly were up for sale they would do that shit where they let O&A go so it softens the books and looks like a more attractive buy...

    Why do you think that would change or help anything? You think NBC/Universal has some O&A vendetta? If they did, you think fan mail would change the outcome?

    What O&A get paid is pennies compared to their bottom line
    Plus if the show is profitable it doesn't matter

    I doubt the show is profitable on its own (I doubt ANY show on Sirius is), but O&A have nowhere else to go. They'll be back if they want to continue doing a show.
