    "Speaking of dethroned royalty, the New York “shock jock” Howard Stern, who once declared himself the King of All Media, is mightily upset with the Los Angeles Times, which ran a front-page story last week declaring that his move to satellite radio has effectively ended his reign.

    The story - which ran the day after Stern returned from his honeymoon, presumably for maximum irritation value - claimed that a mere one or two million people now listen to his show via Sirius (an in-car subscription service) against some 12 million during his peak years on “terrestrial” radio. It also claimed that A-listers now shun Stern's show, because they think him “culturally irrelevant”. “This article makes me sound like I'm a loser,” raged Stern, who was paid half a billion dollars - partly in stock - to join Sirius as opposed to its rival XM. Sirius has since merged with XM.

    Now, much as I've never been much of a fan of such Stern fare as “Bestiality Dial-a-Date”, it would be a shame to see the King of All Media deposed. His interviews are consistently the most honest and entertaining to be found anywhere - which is probably why A-listers' publicists don't like him. Fortunately, I think the Los Angeles Times is missing the point. At a time when most media companies are struggling to make any money at all, Stern's lure has helped to persuade nine million people not only to buy and install expensive Sirius receivers, but also to sign-up for monthly subscription plans. My wife - a lifelong fan - pays $20 a month to listen to him.

    If only readers of the Los Angeles Times were so loyal - the troubled paper has just fired 250 employees amid a 5 per cent slump in circulation."

    Pink Radio: XM brings cancer prevention to the airwaves

    Mon. October 20, 2008; Posted: 03:08 PM

    Oct 20, 2008 (Daily Breeze - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- CCU | Quote | Chart | News | PowerRating -- The fight against cancer just got its own station.
    Premiere Radio Networks, a subsidiary of Clear Channel Communications, has partnered with Los Angeles-based City of Hope, one of the nation's leading cancer research, treatment and education centers, to launch the first-ever radio channel supporting the battle against cancers that most impact women.

    "Cancer has become so pervasive that there really isn't anyone I know who hasn't been affected," said Pink Channel creator Debbi Petrasek Brown of Premiere Radio Networks. "I thought the time was right for us as a company to do good -- to do what we do but give a portion of it back to an institution that supports cancer research."

    The Pink Channel, broadcast on XM Satellite Radio Channel 24, features pop hits from the '70s, '80s and '90s, in addition to brief informational segments from City of Hope that relate to cancer prevention and support.

    Women's breast and ovarian cancers are the primary focus, but prevention tips are applicable to the general public.

    City of Hope, called the station "a real opportunity for the City of Hope to educate the population as a whole."

    "The biggest reason for us to be involved is the opportunity for us to educate the public on all aspects of cancer -- its prevention, its treatment and its research," Levine said. "That's what we were most excited about."

    The station is, first and foremost, a music station. But City of Hope will air

    60-second seg-

    Dr. Alexandra Levine, chief medical officer of

    ments interspersed throughout the 24-hour schedule. These vignettes will include, among other things, Q&A segments and tips on coping when a friend or loved one is diagnosed with cancer.

    "If you've had friends or family who have had cancer, you know this is really important information," said Steve Martin, associate vice president of marketing for City of Hope. "The trick is to make the segments compelling."

    To do that, a weekly celebrity host will report on City of Hope's latest cancer research and treatment programs, share personal stories and read listener dedications.

    "American Idol" champion Jordin Sparks, Grammy-winner Olivia Newton-John and country singer Lee Ann Womack, among others, are slated to serve as hosts.

    "The point of our channel is to inform and make people aware, but also to entertain," said Petrasek Brown, whose mother died of pancreatic cancer two years ago. "It's not the Death and Dying Channel; it's the Pink Channel ... it transcends the disease state and offers up good music and compelling information to everybody."

    It's also a fundraising opportunity for City of Hope, which will receive a portion of the proceeds from advertising and online retail sales of clothing and accessories, as well as 100 percent of listener donations collected through the channel's Web site, www.pinkchannelradio.com.

    "This is really a chance to grow our brand nationally," Martin said. "We're known in certain pockets of the country, but we're really looking to grow our brand to be a national brand."

    This isn't City of Hope's first foray into radio. The medical center also sponsors a radio call-in show, "The Group Room" (airing from 1 to 3 p.m. Sundays on KRLA 870 AM and XM Channel 155), in which doctors answer questions about cancer. The show also can be heard at www.vitaloptions.org.

    And there's definitely an audience out there.

    According to the American Cancer Society, more than 1.4 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer this year. Among those, more than 182,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, 40,100 will be diagnosed with uterine cancer, 11,070 with cervical cancer and 21,650 with ovarian cancer.

    "I know that there are thousands of questions people have the moment a person is diagnosed," Levine said. "Even though a couple of minutes doesn't seem like a lot of time, it is enough time to get some very important bits of information across."

    That said, she added that she hopes the Pink Channel can evolve to include longer discussions and programs devoted to cancer prevention, research and support.

    Sirius, XM technology would take years to merge
    By PATRICIA SCOTT, AUTOMOTIVE NEWS


    Mel Karmazin, CEO of Sirius XM Radio Inc., said Monday that unified satellite radio networks and receivers are still in the distant future.

    Karmazin made his first public appearance in Detroit since the merger of the Sirius and XM satellite radio companies was completed in July. He was the kickoff keynote speaker at the Convergence 2008 conference, hosted by Chrysler LLC. The conference focuses on vehicle electronics and customer needs.

    In a question-and-answer session, Karmazin said the merger of XM and Sirius hasn’t resulted in a merger of satellite capability. Merging XM and Sirius technology and installing it in new vehicles could take as long as 15 years because of the new chips required and automakers’ lead time.

    But the company is offering new efficiencies for its 19 million subscribers that will distinguish one brand from another. During their rivalry in recent years, Sirius and XM signed exclusive contracts with different automakers and brands.

    “Building on the success of our audio entertainment and technology infrastructure, we can bring the relationship to a strategic level by partnering with OEMs to position new-vehicle launches with differentiating Sirius XM features, such as Sirius Traffic with Chrysler, XM Traffic and real-time weather with Honda, Sirius Backseat TV with Chrysler and Sirius Travel Link with Ford,” Karmazin said.

    Karmazin, the former president of media giant Viacom Inc. and the former CEO of CBS Corp., focused his remarks on meeting customer wants and needs with the range of entertainment programming that Sirius XM offers.

    With the value of Sirius XM stock down 75 percent since the merger, Karmazin needs the auto industry to help build new business.

    “There’s all kind of content out there. At the end of the day, I think that the consumer is in a great position because people are going to listen to what it is that interests them,” he said.

    “We are laserlike-focused on making sure that there is nobody out there that’s going to come close to having the content that we do.”

    Karmazin, known for being a champion of shock jock Howard Stern, said satellite radio enables parents to block unwanted programming at a lower price with family-friendly packages.

    Karmazin said Sirius XM will not expand into Europe and Asia. If another company wanted to use the Sirius XM model for content and delivery, he said, he hoped the company would be willing to pay cash for Sirius XM’s consulting and advice.
