SIRIUS Satellite Radio Expands Lineup Of Talk Programming With New Conservative Channel, Sirius Patriot

SIRIUS Talk Radio Lineup Now Features Two Left-Liberal Channels and Two Right-Conservative Channels

NEW YORK – July 7, 2004 - SIRIUS (NASDAQ: SIRI), the premium satellite radio provider known for delivering the very best in commercial-free music and sports programming to cars and homes across the country, today announced the debut of SIRIUS Patriot, a call-in talk radio channel dedicated to conservative American values. SIRIUS Patriot brings to 12 the number of SIRIUS channels that feature call-in talk radio programming, far more than what a listener could hear on any other radio service. SIRIUS Patriot is also the second channel dedicated to conservative viewpoints on SIRIUS.

“SIRIUS is all about variety, selection and choice,” said Jeremy Coleman, SIRIUS Vice President of Talk, Information and Entertainment Programming. “Earlier this year, SIRIUS added a second liberal channel with Air America Radio. We felt it was not only fair, but essential that in this crucial election year we add a second conservative channel for our subscribers. Our offering the greatest number of talk radio viewpoints is key to the SIRIUS promise of unique and compelling programming that listeners cannot get anywhere else.”

Among the unique offerings of the SIRIUS Patriot lineup is an overnight feed of The Pentagon Channel. This program, produced by the Department of Defense, broadcasts military news and information for the 2.6 million members of the U.S. Armed Forces, including Defense Department news briefings, military news, interviews with top defense officials and short stories about the work of the U.S. military.
