The sky is not falling

Starting this summer, XM Satellite Radio plans to offer “real-time weather data through a targeted service that will deliver information to map-display devices in boats, aircraft and emergency-response vehicles.” That’s according to a story in the April 18 issue of R&R (Radio & Records). In a letter to the FCC, NAB Sr.VP/General Counsel Jack Goodman wrote, “It appears that XM does intend to convert its service from an exclusively national program service to one that delivers locallay differentiated content.” Hmm. I couldn’t find the story online but will keep searching.
