Sirius XM Radio Inc.'s subscriber growth received a cool reception on Wall Street as investors became worried that the satellite radio company might lose customers early next year when its 12% price hike takes effect. In announcing its third-quarter earnings Tuesday, the New York company reported 21.3 million subscribers as of Sept. 30. That's up 334,000 from July — mostly from consumers who bought new cars and began subscribing to the service — but below analysts' expectations of as many as 400,000 new subscribers.

Sirius XM Radio Inc. Chief Executive Mel Karmazin said he would likely leave the company when Liberty Media takes control of the satellite radio broadcaster. Liberty, the largest shareholder in SiriusXM, currently holds just under 50% of the stock and has already told the Federal Communications Commission that it plans to acquire more than that and would like the regulatory agency to approve it as the outright owner when that happens. Speaking at the Merrill Lynch Media, Communications and Entertainment Conference in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, Karmazin said he is willing to talk about staying but added, "If I were Liberty I would say, 'I'm not sure we need Mel.'" Karmazin's contract with SiriusXM is up at the end of the year.

Howard Stern, the self-described "king of all media," will continue his reign with Sirius XM Radio Inc. Ending speculation that he would take his show to the next frontier ? whatever that might be ? the radio personality said on his morning show Thursday that he had signed a new deal that would keep him with satellite radio broadcaster Sirius XM for five more years. Stern, who turns 57 next month, did not reveal details of the pact, but word that he was staying put was enough for investors to drive up Sirius XM stock about 20% in early-morning trading.

How happy was Sirius XM Radio Inc. Chief Executive Mel Karmazin last week after his biggest star, Howard Stern, agreed to a new five-year contract with the satellite radio broadcaster? "From what I remember it was a good celebration," Karmazin said wryly. Getting Stern to stick around removed one of the big question marks facing Sirius XM. The company, which has weathered a difficult two years of financial uncertainty, needed to keep Stern not only for his listeners but also to signal to the financial community that its momentum is continuing.

As the second of USC's practices began Friday afternoon, an old rival sat nearly alone in the stands watching. "I recruited almost all those guys," said Rick Neuheisel. The former UCLA football coach who was fired in November after a four-year run with a 21-28 record is now working as a co-host on Sirius/XM radio's college sports talk station, capping a cross-country tour of camps to advance his coming weekday talk show with Jack Arute.

Longtime Los Angeles DJ Jim Ladd will move to satellite radio in mid-January with a new show he'll be hosting nightly on Sirius XM Radio, officials at the service announced Thursday. It gives Ladd's daily show a national audience for the first time in his career. Ladd was fired from his post at KLOS-FM (95.5) in October during a round of cost cutting at the station after a change in ownership. Ladd had been a regular presence on the Southern California airwaves for more than 40 years, and was considered the last DJ at a major market commercial station with complete freedom to choose the music he plays.
