STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER MIGNON L. CLYBURN ON THE SELECTION

OF QUALIFIED ENTITIES FOR LEASES BY SIRIUS XM

I wish to congratulate the five awardees selected as qualified entities by Sirius XM. I
look forward to learning more about the content they plan to offer and the exciting programming
sure to come.
Today's announcement is the culmination of a long undertaking, and I'm pleased that the
roadmap the Commission and Sirius XM developed has achieved fruition. We worked together
to create a diligent process that enables the company to select diverse programming via a
thorough and transparent application and selection regime.
Through this endeavor, groups that have been historically underserved will be able to
enjoy a wider variety of creative and entertaining options on a national platform, and I am
looking forward to the launch of these new stations as soon as possible.
