Las Vegas, Nev. and Washington D.C., January 05, 2005 -- XM Satellite Radio (NASDAQ: XMSR), the country's number-one satellite radio service with more than 3.2 million subscribers, today announced that former major league baseball manager and Fox baseball anchor Kevin Kennedy and acclaimed sports journalist Tony Kornheiser have joined XM's award-winning sports, talk and music programming line-up for 2005.

XM is the Official Satellite Radio Network of Major League Baseball. Starting with the 2005 season, XM will be broadcasting games for every MLB team with play-by-play commentary from the teams' local announcers. In addition, in collaboration with MLB, this spring XM will debut a dedicated 24/7 Major League Baseball channel featuring original programming and classic MLB broadcasts throughout the season.


Kevin Kennedy, the long-time television anchor for FOX's baseball coverage and the former manager of the Boston Red Sox and Texas Rangers, will host an exclusive show on XM's 24/7 Major League Baseball channel beginning this spring.


"XM is thrilled to have Kevin Kennedy as a key part of our baseball family," said Eric Logan, XM's Executive Vice President of Programming. "Kevin Kennedy will offer XM listeners an entertaining and respected perspective of our national pastime rooted in three decades of major league experience as a broadcaster and manager."

Kornheiser's new show will begin airing in February 2005. XM is the only national broadcaster to offer Kornheiser's radio program.


"Between my work in print, radio and television, radio is by far the most fun - the one where you can be yourself most often. I'm so happy to be back on the radio again and I'm thrilled to be joining XM Satellite Radio," said Tony Kornheiser.
