    I did a serach before posting and did not see anything related to this:

    There have been rumors lately that CC is finally going byebye on the XM side and those that have SiriusXM radios. Now it seems official there are postings on XMFan as well the stations themselves are making announcements some are saying 8/1- i think there a total of about 10 stations that are CC based, so this could open up more bandwidth for stations to return from just internet only to satellite as well. CC promotes Iheart radio so why have them on SiriusXM anymore and use the xtra BW wisely.

    Anyone have any ideas or anyone from Sirius (joeepistonee) who is on the Siriusxm retention team can shead some light on it.

    It's not clear if some music channels on the CC side are staying or not- I guess we will know soon :)

    This could open up more 2.0 channels?

    If they pay to be on SiriusXM, I have no issues with them on satellite radio :)

    You'd have to pay me to listen to Clear Channel's garbage.

    From what I've heard, August 31st is the last day. I assume this would be for all of them.

    If you are looking for a quick fix on some Pop music some of those channels like KISS can be good. Just often more repetitive.

    That's the date I've heard, but WSIX is saying end of July. We can only speculate, because SXM will not release any info on this matter until it happens. We should open another thread in programming to voice opinions on what we would like to happen vs what we think SXM will do.

    I would think it would be easier to replace music with existing channels on internet or xtra channels or automating new ones. Talk sounds harder losing like coast to coast and Fox Sports. I would think SXM would be creating a new Talk and Sports channel right now if they needed to be replaced. How about adding all the ESPN's: Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas with the main broadcast.

    I guess we are assuming CC channels would be replaced

    Agreed- I think that's why SXM has been previewing those channels on sats: Fly, R&R HoF and this week will be the 3rd preview of R,W & Booze(this time on Ch 111) and the 2nd preview of Pink Floyd Channel(midnight on Ch 27)

    And bring back The Village. I just slept through most of the Mary Sue Twohy show on the Bridge.
    Aren't there like a total of 10 Clear Channels on SXM.

    57-WSIX

    246-TALK RADIO
    247-FOX SPORTS RADIO

    Art Bell may be making a return to radio possibly on SXM so there could be more than just music replacing CC's bandwidth.
