NAB attempts to delay XM / Sirius merger even further

Nilay Patel

Even though the Justice Department has approved the XM / Sirius merger and the FCC's approval is all but sure to follow, those pesky fools at NAB just won't go down without a fight -- the organization is demanding that FCC's approval be postponed until certain documents are turned over by the agency. NAB says the paperwork shows "apparent wrongdoing" by Sirius and XM officials in including FM transmitters in radios and terrestrial repeaters, and it met with FCC officials on Tuesday to make its claim. There's no word on how effective any of this is going to be, but we'll give it to NAB for being tenacious, at least -- now please, go away.
