mmtc-logo.gifThe Minority Media and Telecommunications council recently had a meeting with the FCC regarding the proposed merger between Sirius and XM Satellite Radio. In their filing with the FCC, the MMTC noted that they were asked to comment on the merger. The MMTC response was:

"MMTC has not filed comments in this proceeding and does not plan to do at this time as the merger does not appear to have a direct, specific impact on minority ownership policy."

The filing contains some other bits of information that deal with the congressman Towns letter on 8 minority channels. This is the first communication from MMTC regarding the proposed merger.

Position - Long Sirius, XM.
