      March 12, 2007

      Sirius Satellite Radio has renewed its long-term agreement with National Public Radio (NPR) to continue programming two 24/7 public radio channels. The channels, NPR Now and NPR Talk, include a variety of news/talk, cultural and entertainment programming. Among the news and talk shows are Talk of the Nation, News & Notes, Fresh Air, The Diane Rehm Show, Day to Day, Marketplace, On the Media, Radio Times, Justice Talking, Latino USA and Forum. Entertainment shows on the NPR channels include A Prairie Home Companion, Car Talk, Chef's Table and Travel with Rick Steves, while Jazz Profiles and Soundprint are some of the arts and music shows in the lineup.

      As part of the deal, Sirius also will be the exclusive satellite radio home of a new morning news and information program for Adults 25-44 that NPR will launch in all media in September. Furthermore, selected programs from NPR Now and NPR Talk will be available to Sirius subscribers through Sirius.com and Sirius Internet Radio (SIR) starting later in 2007
