Default Did Anyone Else Hear Oprah's Mistake?

So I was sitting in our living room with the TV on the other day. One of my daughters is watching the afternoon "Oprah" show. As I am reading a newpaper I hear Oprah Winfrey herself plugging her satellite radio show...

"...It's on SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO, Channel 156..."

Holy SMOKES!!! I turned to my daughter... "Did I hear her right? Did she just say 'SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO?'"

My daughter heard it too.

Imagine working at XM and paying the lady $55 mil per year and having her promote your only competitor.

Funny.

Did anybody else hear it?

You would think that someone would pick up on it from the time she says it until the time it airs and do something about it...

Nice. Would like to see all those Oprah fans who have Sirius turn their radios to channel 156, and their faces when their greeted with those round the clock weather and traffic updates for San Francisco and Seattle!!

Yikes. Thats too bad, for fans with either service. One company is getting their money thrown away on having her on and promoting the wrong service, the other will get calls asking why the oprah channel isn't on sirius like oprah said.

That's hilarious!

It just goes to show you how she did the whole XM deal strictly for the money and that she obviously doesn't give two shits about it...just like her magazine, her channel, and basically all her other endeavors not directly related to the TV show.

I'm sure Howard (if he hasn't already) will get a kick out of this once he gets wind of it.

Oprah currently has a contract with XM. If she really did say this (the only evidence I've seen is this thread), it's clear that the whole Oprah channel over there isn't even on her radar screen. She allowed her name to be attached to the project as one more way to generate revenue, but that's the extent of her involvement. She could care less. I'm pretty sure that Martha Stewart would get the right company.

Nah... What am I thinking....
