It was formed in 2008 and through 2013, Sirius XM has 25.6 million subscribers.
As of 2012, Sirius XM had a 60% penetration rate in the new car market.
Out of that 60%, approximately 45% have become subscribers.
The company has long-term deals with General Motors, Ford, Toyota, Kia, Bentley, BMW, Volkswagen, Nissan, Hyundai and Mitsubishi, along with assorted trucks, boats and recreational vehicles.
Sirius XM radio content is available to stream online as an add-on to existing subscriptions, or as an Internet-only option.
Internet and mobile services directly challenging Sirius XM include Pandora and Spotify.
In order to better compete, SiriusXM announced that the company would start offering a personalized interactive online radio experience, similar to Pandora in August 2011.
Roughly half of SiriusXM channels sell advertising time to clients and advertising agencies. These are primarily “spoken word” programming channels that run the gamut of topics, including:
News (CNN and CNBC cable TV simulcasts)
Talk (conservative and liberal programming, truckers, GLBT)
Sports (ESPN, Fantasy Sports Radio)
Comedy (Raw Dog Radio, The Foxxhole).
While SiriusXM does promote its total number of subscribers and provides some guidance to who’s listening to what, the satellite service steadfastly refuses to release audience information for individual channels.
Advertisers have no idea if 100 or 100,000 people are hearing a specific message on any given channel, perhaps accounting for the high mix of direct response advertisers who live-and-die by measuring and managing results, rather than counting gross advertising impressions.

AT&T's station, WEAF, created the first "toll broadcast" (which we now know as a commercial) in August 1992. It was bought by Queensboro Corp. in Jackson Heights, Queens, New York City.
The buy was for $50 to play a 10-minute spot once a day for five days. They quickly sold three apartments, establishing viability for the medium.
Radio begins to mature.
During this decade, advertisers - through
their agencies - owned and controlled entire programs, and hired/fired talent.
Radio was the voice of the war effort during WWII. Entertainers soothed the public and new reports informed their audiences.
TV arrives in the late 1940s which
created a struggle against radio.
Radio continued to struggle against losing listeners and advertisers to Television.
As FM radio began to take hold during the 50s and especially the 60s, a movement towards multi-sponsored advertising emerged.
Instead of broadcasting variety shows to directly compete with television, radio stations began broadcasting rock and roll music among other genres.
Corporations picked up on the transformation and sought to promote their products on multiple frequencies throughout the entire day.
However, more sponsors meant less air time for each commercial, and the length of a standard commercial decreased. In the 60s and 70s, commercials averaged around 30 seconds.
Advertisers needed more creativity in their ads beyond a simple jingle.
Commercials started to take on comedic qualities or tried to act more conversational as opposed to previous commercials where companies utilized experts in certain fields to persuade consumers.
Another mean of advertising included the usage of celebrities in commercials.
N’Sync was used on a Chili’s commercial and Britney Spears was used in a Pepsi ad during the 90s and 00s.
The necessity for companies to stay current with popular trends and culture took hold of advertising and weaponized comedy and pop-culture icons as talking advertisements.
The cost for advertising on the radio is done on a per-spot basis.
You will be charged every time your ad runs. So, if you want your ad to run 5 times per day for 5 days you will have a total of 25 ads.
If you have an single price ad rate of $10 per ad you will be charged a total of $250 dollars for the 25 ads. (and you thought high school word problems were never used in real life!)
While the cost depends on many factors, the primary one is how many people will be listening. Below are ballpark figures for weekly advertising costs, based on advertising with a top performing radio station using a schedule that includes 15 Monday – Friday spots and 4 weekend spots.
New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago: from $4000 to $8000
Dallas/Ft.Worth, Houston, Phoenix, San Diego: from $2000 to $5000
Denver, Cleveland, Kansas City: from $1000 to $3000
Akron, Wichita, Baton Rouge: from $800 to $2000
Myrtle Beach SC, Green Bay, Topeka: from $500 to $1500

Why Kashflow stopped using Spotify for their advertisements–
"When a user clicked the ad box in Spotify it worked really well – we knew exactly how many clicks we were getting and how many people signed up to try our accounting software. But there’s a problem – this isn’t how people use Spotify."
There are lots of ‘half solutions’, like sending people to a specific URL or asking them to Google a specific term, but the reality is that the majority of people will still just Google ‘KashFlow’ ".
Spotify and Kashflow:
There will be greater developments in the ability to measure the effectiveness of online and digital radio.
Advertisers will continue to use AM/FM radio for more local businesses and more national brands will continue to use online and digital media.
However, due to the ability to geographically market through large radio companies, local advertisers will begin to use this outlet more often.
