XM Layoffs Surface in Industry Talk

The satellite radio behemoth known as Sirius XM still wouldn't comment on talk that it has laid off several workers, but the industry news and chatter continued about the employee cuts Thursday.

Those laid off at the company include popular DJs and program directors for XM streams like the Decades channel, '80s on 8, Deep Tracks and XMU. It appears the layoffs (which number as many as 80) took place at XM's offices in Washington, D.C.

At the channel's Web site, those involved with the XMU stream said they appreciated "the years of love, music, fun and passion we have exchanged with our friends in music. It's been more than a pleasure."

The speculation is that Sirius content will take over any duplicating streams delivered by XM. The consolidation of channels is reportedly set for Nov. 5.
