XM recently received a hefty infusion ($25million) of venture 
capital.  Sirius, on the other hand, is pretty much going under.  They're 
currently negotiating with their stockholders to restructure their common 
stock in a last-ditch move to avoid bankruptcy.


CNet is killing their entire radio division on Jan.31st and laying off 
"several" workers, bringing the company's total employees to approx. 1500 
people.   Their agreement with Clear Channel-owned KNEW (AM) in San 
Francisco is being ended as well.
