    I hope this article doesn't change in an hour!

    Adelstein was being interviewed for C-SPAN's The Communicators series.

    He said he expects the FCC's decision on the XM Satellite Radio-Sirius Satellite Radio merger to happen "pretty shortly."

    He added that he had still seen no proposal from FCC chairman Kevin Martin on the proposed XM-Sirius merger, but nonetheless he thought it would happen "pretty soon."

    Adelstein said the decision will have to come in two parts, with the FCC first changing its rules to allow one company to own the two satellite-radio licenses. "Then we have to decide what to do about the merger and whether there are any specific conditions that need to be placed on it,” he added. “I expect that will happen pretty shortly."

    As someone pointed out to me. The last line is very interesting, seemingly acknowledging that the FCC will change its rules in part 1.

    The Communicators airs Saturdays on C-SPAN at 6:30pm ET and Monday on C-SPAN2 at 8am & 8pm ET.
