    NEW YORK, June 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SIRIUS Satellite Radio
 (Nasdaq:   SIRI) today announced that Indie Talk, the first radio channel for
 independent voters, will broadcast "The Fight for Independents" -- a live,
 town hall style roundtable discussion program. As the candidates and the
 nation prepare for the general election, political maverick Ron Silver,
 comedian Pete Dominick, and former Court TV anchor Vinnie Politan, all
 hosts on Indie Talk, will hold a live open-forum call-in broadcast with
 independent voters to find out how they plan to cast their votes and why.

     The one hour broadcast, airing at 1 pm ET, Tuesday July 8th, will also
 feature top political analysts from prominent blogs covering the election
 season, from The Huffington Post to Newsweek's The Stumper to, who will share their insight on how the candidates are
 appealing to independent voters on the campaign trail.
     "The Fight for Independents" kicks off Indie Talk's season of campaign
 coverage designed exclusively for independent voters, including "Indie
 Watch," weekly segments highlighting independent voters from across the
 country and the issues most important to them.
     "Whether you call them swing states, Reagan Democrats, or the invisible
 working class, it is becoming clear that this election will be decided by
 independent voters; and this will be their radio channel," said Ron Silver,
 morning show host on Indie Talk. "With the diversity of our shows, hosts,
 and callers, Indie Talk truly illustrates that no party, demographic, or
 generation has a monopoly on independent thought."
     Every day, from now through November 2nd, Indie Talk will give voice to
 independent voters, provide their debate with a national forum and focus on
 bringing listeners the most comprehensive information on the two major
 party candidates.
     Indie Talk will continue to bring listeners the latest from the
 political blogosphere with The Blogcast -- the only radio news service
 covering the latest news from political blogs. The Blogcast focuses on
 headlines and analysis most pertinent to the independently-minded voter and
 airs every 20 minutes.
     Indie Talk, SIRIUS channel 110, officially launched on February 6,
 2008, the day after Super Tuesday.
