XM-Sirius Merger Approved by DOJ

This just in, DC-based XM and New York-based Sirius’s planned merger has been approved by the Department of Justice, meaning that only the FCC can step in to stop the merger between the two satellite radio companies. I’m not sure if it’s been said yet where the new company will be based, but I suspect that XM’s Florida Avenue facility will remain in place as part of the new network’s planned operations center.

    Awesome! This is the best news I’ve heard in a long time. It took waaaaay too long to come to this conclusion though. Way to go congress.

    Totally agree. This is great to finally see happen.
