XM and SiriusTrying to woo the FCC into allowing the proposed merger of Sirius and XM Satellite Radio, Mel Karmazin, the CEO of Sirius, announced yesterday the prices for a variety of packages, should the companies merge––one of which would be a low cost version. As reported by Variety Daily:

Among the proposed packages is a low-cost option, well below the $12.95 both charge, and a "best of" version that would be more expensive but include all of Sirius, including Howard Stern and the National Football League, and parts of XM's big-ticket programming, including "Oprah and Friends" and Major League Baseball.

"We've had a number of meetings since we announced the deal," Karmazin told Daily Variety. "We hope we can draft an offering that will be something the commissioners will see is in the public interest."

Karmazin also hinted that if the merger goes through, they would be interested in hiring Don Imus

"I've had no conversation with Imus or his people since he left, but I would assume that one of the first phone calls he would make if he came back would be to satellite radio," he said.
