    IT’s TIME HAS COME. Sirius Xm needs to impliment “NATIONAL SPONSORSHIP”. Synopsis: Have hourly sponsors for each hour of programming. This would not include existing programming that run commercials. This would run thru out all other channels during each hour. All of these channels would have the same sponsor thru out each respective hour. Example: “This hour is being brought to you by our friends @ Coca Cola, Things Go Better w/ Coke”.This would be annouced @ limited times per hour. Also the sponsors logo or name will be displayed on radio screens of participating channels. BASED ON $5,000.00 per hour for this National Sponsorship X 24hours per day X 365 days per year=OVER $420 MILLION DOLLARS IN NEW REVENUE! If you say now is a bad time because advertising budgets are being cut back, I say now is the best time becuase companies can reach a national audience at a bargain rate.
