Sirius XM...

Post by MWmetalhead » Sun Mar 03, 2019 1:41 pm

They only earned $1.1BN in Net Income on $5.8BN in Revenue in 2018. Net Income has more than doubled over the past five years.

They earned $2.0BN in EBITDA, which is up 45% from five years ago.

Can someone remind how well iFart and Cumulus performed during the same timeframe? :lol

No one will pay for "Radio" right? Satellite radio will never survive, right? :lol

I love how a PAY radio service has about 50% more in annual Revenue than iHeartMedia's 1000+ radio stations.

I guess this is a win for the "Content is king" camp...

I thought the idea of maintaining a network of satellites was crazy, but compare that to 1100 transmitters I guess XM and Sirius were right.

It makes you wonder why radio hasn't gone to a national programming model like television and just about everybody else. Why wouldn't you have one local station and National feeds for the popular formats with local wx and news.

Give it Time TC, AM Radio is pretty much Satellite feed today with all the talk and sports.
