    The period of time during which a protest against Liberty Media's (LMCA -3.2%) planned acquisition of Sirius XM Radio (SIRI -3.7%) could be filed with regulators passes with only one objection actually recorded. Barring any problems with the FCC, the long-awaited takeover could be official in a matter of weeks. With that hurdle cleared, next on tap will be finding a CEO ready to take on the next chapter of Sirius.

    Sirius XM Radio (SIRI) edges up 0.4% premarket after a scare Apple was entering the Internet radio scene threw shares off kilter late in the day yesterday. When push comes to shove, the report was a rehash of previous news and Sirius XM Radio is considered by a majority of analysts as well-positioned to meet the challenge.

    The buzz behind the satellite radio airwaves is that Sirius XM Radio (SIRI +1.6%) star personality Howard Stern could leave the company with longtime supporter Mel Karmazin easing out of the CEO's office. Will Pandora (P -5.5%) try to shake up its lineup by making a play for the "King of All Media?"

    The board of Sirius XM Radio (SIRI) forms a search committee to find a replacement for the outgoing Mel Karmazin. The quick readthrough by RBC Capital analyst David Bank of the retirement of Karmazin is that the Sirius could take on more debt and increase its leverage, the game plan Liberty Media's John Malone (LMCA) used with DirecTV.

    Dead Mel talking? Sirius XM Radio (SIRI +2.5%) CEO Mel Karmazin presented at the Liberty Media conference today (webcast), in perhaps one of his final public appearances at the helm. The exec tipped off that the company expects FY12 revenue of $3.4B - roughly in-line with the estimates of analysts. Net subscribers are on the move, with the latest estimate for FY12 now pegged at 1.8M after the satellite radio player added 446K subscribers in Q3.

    The FCC announces that any parties that oppose Liberty Media's (LMCA +0.7%) proposal to take over Sirius Radio XM (SIRI +2.7%) have until November 1st to file their initial protest with the agency. With the merger now all but imminent, shares of SIRI have ripped to a 4-year high today, helped in part by BofA's Jessica Reif Cohen who launched coverage with a Buy rating on the "compelling" stock.

    The FCC just granted AT&T (T) a big request by allowing the spectrum-obsessed carrier to use 20 MHz. of nationwide spectrum in the 2.3 GHz. (WCS) band to deploy 4G services. AT&T, which has acquired WCS spectrum from NextWave Wireless and others, paved the way for the FCC's ruling by addressing concerns from Sirius XM (SIRI), which owns spectrum in an adjacent band, about potential interference.

    Liberty Media (LMCA -1.1%) CEO John Malone tells the audience at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia Conference that the company's stake in Sirius XM Radio (SIRI -1.2%) is close to 49.6% as it stands tantalizingly close to gaining full control of the company. Naturally, one of the questions to the exec has to do with the fate of Mel Karmazin which he shrugs off by indicating a Mel-less Sirius would do just fine. (webcast)
