ABC News is reporting that XM and Sirius are merging and are almost complete. The actual merge is expected today with a press conference expected later in the afternoon. Earlier, there were some rumors that XM and Sirius wanted to merge but wouldn’t be able to due to the FCC. Though the FCC will be giving both companies a hassle, they should be able to work it out in one way or another.
If the two do merge though, it could mean you’ll be getting all your sports, talk shows, and shock jocks under one roof. We’ll keep you posted as the info comes in.
