NAB Statement on Today's DOJ Decision Regarding XM and Sirius

WASHINGTON, DC – NAB issued the following statement today regarding the Justice Department's approval of the Sirius-XM merger.

The following statement can be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President Dennis Wharton:

"We are astonished that the Justice Department would propose granting a monopoly to two companies that systematically broke FCC rules for more than a decade. To hinge approval of this monopoly on XM and Sirius's refusal to deliver on a promise of interoperable radios is nothing short of breathtaking."
