Sirius Signs Young Conservative Andrew Wilkow

Conservative talk show host Andrew Wilkow is leaving his daily talk program on WGY-AM/Albany and his weekend talk show on WABC-AM/New York to move to Sirius, the satellite radio company announced today. Wilkow, described by Sirius as "the next generation of talk radio," began his radio career as an 18-year-old college student. Now in his "very early thirties," according to the WABC website, this is the first time he will be reaching a national audience.
"Now is the time for a new school of conservative voices with a whole new style and passion, which is what my show is all about," Wilkow says. "Moving to Sirius lets me take that style and passion nationwide." (http://www.orbitcast.com/archives/andrew-wilkow-signs-with-sirius-satellite-radio.html)

I guess this will be the last that I hear Wilkow since I don't plan on getting Sirius any time soon since I can not really afford it. I think there will be a huge wave of Talkers moving to Satellite stations and the big assumption seems to be that most everyone is driving or walking around with this technology. This move to Sirius is going to hurt a lot of respectful Talk Radio hosts who gain listeners by people searching their radio dials. I guess people could accidentally find Wilkow on Sirius as well but if were at all possible it would be best to continue on the AM stations he is currently on and have his shows simulcast on Sirius.
