Following last week’s PodShow.com “StrategyCast“, it looks like Sirius was allowed to make some “damn announcements” of their own.
Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. is latching onto the “podcasting” phenomenon, launching a show later this month that will feature a daily selection of the increasingly popular do-it-yourself audio programs.
The host will be none other than Adam Curry. (A smart move, Adam. Congratulations.)
The only question in my mind: Will the “daily selection” include other talent outside of the “PodShow family?” Granted, it’s in his best interest to run clips from his own network of talent, but I hate when these announcements shroud the fact that the content is going to be more promotional and less editorial.
Of course, I’ll never know. I really have no need (or desire) to subscribe to satellite radio.

He always wanted to compete with Howard Stern, now he gets to.
