XM SATELLITE RADIO AND NEW YORK TIMES RADIO ENTER PROGRAMMING AGREEMENT



Washington D.C., August 03, 2005 -- XM Satellite Radio, the nation's leading satellite radio service, and New York Times Radio, the newly established New York Times Company unit that includes classical music radio station WQXR, have announced an agreement whereby XM will include New York Times Radio-produced information and music content on a number of its channels. XM will incorporate a series of Times-branded information features on several of its talk channels, including reports, reviews, and commentaries from Times staffers; XM will present the popular WQXR music series "Reflections from the Keyboard" on one of its classical music channels; and the companies will jointly present a series of quarterly classical music specials. In addition, the companies will develop New York Times Radio hourly newscasts for select XM talk channels.

"XM is the leader in satellite radio, and will be very helpful with our new national initiative," said Tom Bartunek, president of New York Times Radio and general manager of WQXR. "We hope that this initial agreement is the beginning of a long-term, growing collaboration."

"New York Times Radio will provide a variety of high-quality talk radio, music, and news content for XM listeners," said Eric Logan, executive vice president of XM Satellite Radio. "We look forward to working with The Times to offer a diverse selection of programming that will inform and entertain our millions of subscribers from coast to coast."

XM is America's number one satellite radio service with more than 4.4 million subscribers. Broadcasting live daily from studios in Washington, DC, New York City and Nashville at the Country Music Hall of Fame, XM's 2005 lineup includes more than 150 digital channels of choice from coast to coast: commercial-free music channels, premier sports, talk, comedy, children's and entertainment programming; and advanced traffic and weather information. XM was named Best Radio Service at the 2004 Billboard Digital Entertainment Awards.

XM, the leader in satellite-delivered entertainment and data services for the automobile market through partnerships with General Motors, Honda, Toyota, Hyundai, Nissan and Volkswagen/Audi, is available in more than 120 different vehicle models for 2005. XM's industry-leading products are available at consumer electronics retailers nationwide. For more information about XM hardware, programming and partnerships, please visit http://www.xmradio.com.

New York Times Radio was established in 2005 to create Times-branded audio content for distribution across multiple platforms. It comprises New York Times Radio News and WQXR FM, the nation's first commercial classical music radio station and the most listened-to classical station in the United States. WQXR is available online exclusively through Radio@AOL. More information about the station and its programming, and access to its stream, are available at www.wqxr.com.

The New York Times Company (NYSE: NYT), a leading media company with 2004 revenues of $3.3 billion, includes The New York Times, the International Herald Tribune, The Boston Globe, 16 other newspapers, eight network-affiliated television stations, two New York City radio stations and more than 40 Web sites, including NYTimes.com, Boston.com and About.com. For the fifth consecutive year, the Company was ranked No. 1 in the publishing industry in Fortune's 2005 list of America's Most Admired Companies. The Company's core purpose is to enhance society by creating, collecting and distributing high-quality news, information and entertainment.




Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements in this press release include demand for the Company's service, the Company's dependence on technology and third party vendors, its potential need for additional financing, as well as other risks described in XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc.'s Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on 3-4-05 and Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 9, 2005. Copies of the filing are available upon request from XM Radio' s Investor Relations Department.

Pretty Interesting!!! I am always glad I have both services, because no matter which one of them get it, I get to listen to it. The beauty of not limiting yourself to one or the other. Having both is the ONLY way to go.

The NY Times over the past few years have proven that they have a political agenda, and that agenda is not only a bias in what they print, but also what they don't print. Newspapers are a dying industry, just like the network news. The Internet, blogs and talk radio now report on what the media will not. The NY Times no longer sets the standard.

The National Enquirer is getting more trustworthy and the NY Times is the opposite. Not saying that they are the same yet, but one day

Well I have to admit I use to subscribe, but I no longer have online access or a subscription at the office like I use too. They have certainly gone down hill so I will grant you that. But the National Inquirer... ROTFLOL

Little known fact:

The National Enquirer has the strictest standards for source verification in the US media. Stricter than the Times. Stricter than the Wall Street Journal.

Every word has to be documented for where it came from (who said it and when) and the lawyers go through everything with a fine-tooth comb.

Of course, this doesn't mean the gist of what's being printed is true. It means that when "sources close to $CELEBRITY say..." is printed in the Enquirer, someone close to $CELEBRITY actually told the reporter that. Since what's being reported is really that the source says that, it's all kosher.

On-topic: I'm kinda surprised XM pulled this deal and not Sirius, what with Siri being in NY and all. I would've expected XM to get in bed with Gannett/USA Today.

This isn't anything to get excited about as the NY Times has damaged credibility. This isn't a reason to go out and sign up for XM either, it's probably just a way to get filler content for unfilled commercial slots.

Credibility, schmedibility, I like the special music programs on the classical music streams and look forward to hearing more of them. I started taking classical music seriously late in life and have a lot of catching up to do.
