For Sirius XM, Is There Life After Howard Stern? – Highest Rated?

The latest earnings report from satellite radio monopoly Sirius XM (NASDAQ: SIRI) had to please its shareholders, especially given that it delivered record revenue for the period. But as it continues its integration of Pandora, which it acquired last year, there remain some questions, particularly about what is in store for the company in the post-Howard Stern era. (The iconic shock jock’s contract includes only a couple more years of him as a on-air personality.)

In this segment of the MarketFoolery podcast, host Mac Greer, Motley Fool Chief Investment Officer Andy Cross, and senior analyst Jason Moser drill into the business to consider the size of its audience, the levers it can pull with Pandora to increase its revenues, the commoditization of the music industry, and the breadth of Sirius’s non-music offerings. They also discuss the value of its deep pool of data about its customers’ preferences, and the long range brilliance of bringing the King of All Media on board, as reflected in its 10-year stock chart.

    shooting a signal to space to then shoot it back to earth, seems still nonsensical to me. Why not stay on the radio?

    You can't replace Stern but there are a LOT of show hosts that could take his place if needed. Especially if they throw the money there throwing at Howard. I have Sirus and since terrestrial radio is dead as long as the price stays low Ill keep subscribing and honestly I don't even listen to Howard Stern. Sattelite radio is the future in my opinion since terrestrial radio is dead they don't really need him anymore imo.

    I think SiriusXM has a little more staying power than people originally thought! I think that they are making smart & strategic moves to position themselves to growth moving forward!

    I've been a long time Sirius listener, long before the merger. I've not listened to HS, and I listened to him on local radio in DC before DC101 let him go. I'm a fan. I'll be a long time customer when he's gone.

    Prices have to DROP dramatically to justify me keeping SiriusXM after Howard leaves.
