... asks Celeste Headlee for National Public Radio's Day to Day program. Here's the set-up:
The Federal Communications Commission is expected to decide next week whether satellite radio companies Sirius and X-M can merge. Satellite radio has roughly 20 million listeners, but new technologies are posing a challenge to market shares. ¶ Celeste Headlee reports on the development of portable Internet radio. Then NPR's Alex Cohen gets a primer from Wilson Rothman, an editor at Gizmodo.com on the difference between leading radio technologies and Madeleine Brand talks with Mark Ramsey, president of Mercury Radio Research, about why the emergence of new technologies won't spell the end for terrestrial radio.
And you can listen to the audio at this NPR link (0:12:24). The interview with Ramsey is particularly good. Thanks to Roger Johnson for the heads up. --Dennis
