Hmmm

Does this mean I get Air America Radio AND Stephanie Miller on XM? At the same price? My worry here is that if this merger goes through, that they will then start charging "extra" for premium packages...and that the programs I want will be part of those premium packages.

Huh?

XM has prided itself on being advertising-free while Sirius sells ads on its talk radio fare, including Mr. Stern’s shows.
Air America has PLENTY of commercials on XM and I bet they do on all their other talk radio programs as well.

Mergers always make me nervous. It's almost always the consumer who loses, especially when it comes to media and control of content.
