    I saw that SiriusXM is dumping OutQ, the LGBT radio channel.

    http://www.out.com/news-opinion/2016/2/10/gay-bloodbath-sirious-outq

    I wonder if they'd still be around if Howard hadn't resigned.

    Does this now make Howard 100 the gayest channel on Sirius, or is it Radio Andy?

    SiriusXM 125, Patriot Channel is the one worth listening.

    I guess they have to cut cost somewhere to pay wiggy for his 30 millions listeners 3 times a week when he's not on vacation

    It always seemed redundant anyway when you already had HOW-Q 100 and HOW-Q 101. HOW-100 makes OUT-Q look like the NASCAR Channel - do we really need three of these???

    Of course. Gotta cut to the bone to pay Grandma Stern her massive salary with 10 listeners. All from the Shed.

    They probably have some terrestrial radio execs doing some cleaning up around the building now. Radio is the worst at being the cheapest by cutting every corner, then paying out ridiculously massive contracts to a few personalities. The execs also have to pay themselves very generously. It makes no sense. They are probably moving towards fewer talk stations not politics, sports, or comedy oriented, or a TV simulcast in order to pay for Howchie's contract. They already paid everyone on the less popular stations peanuts, but they have to save those tiny dollar amounts to show increasing profit (or a lower loss) every quarter even when their subscription growth is stagnant. They go for the short gain to save a little money now but don't see that having more content will bring in more subscribers in the long run. I can't say I ever listened to OutQ, but I imagine more people listened to it than the Rural Radio channel.

    Sirius has very little original programming anymore. The 10 news stations are just audio feeds from cable TV news, stations like Mad Dog Radio have no overnight shows and the weekends are reruns yeah so great to hear Russo talk about a Twins-Pirates game from 7 days ago.

    And the worst part is -- those two teams don't actually play each other. No one delusionally overrates the national popularity of MLB (or lack there of) more than Russo.

    This fucking fruit loop mental patient us on like MLB TV High Heat talking about like the Rockies middle relief deficiencies in December and January. I can't engage in that in June - let alone December, with all the entertainment options we have now.

    ALL the sports channels are under programmed. NBA RADIO doesn't even have a night show that reacts to the action as it happens. They run games that already on dedicated channels redundantly.

    Why they needed Bleacher Report to get in the act -- I have no idea, when you already had:

    Mad Dog
    NFL
    NBA
    MLB
    NHL
    PGA
    NCAA
    FANTASY SPORTS
    NASCAR
    UFC/BOXING/WWE
    SOCCER/EURO

    and then the various ESPN stuff they sublet you mention.

    just renewed today. It was easy, I said I get the price I had last year or I cancel.
    $138 total all access (car) and streaming.

    that's about what its worth. Coffee House on the sonos and Mad Dog Radio...occasional business news get 90% of my listening. I only download HS and listen if its interesting. Never live.
