Edition #08: The latest news from SiriusXM.
All but events this week. Read and find out what's going on.
Friday, July 22nd, 2022
Hello there. Welcome back to the SeriousXM newsletter. This week is way lighter in terms of news. As a matter of fact, so much so that it’s just going to be all events in this week’s edition of the news. There’s been no major news or new or dropped channels or anything like that. Just various events taking place this week across the SiriusXM universe.
That’s actually good news for yours truly because its been a very sticky kind of a week for me, with headaches, a runny nose, and really terrible coughing. As a result, I’m not 100% but its not stopping me from writing this week’s newsletter.
Again, before we do, if you’d like to support me and my work, which does including this newsletter, then I recommend you go here. Any amount will make a TREMENDOUS difference and I thank you in advance for doing so.
Also, if you know someone who would like to subscribe to this newsletter, then tell them to click here…
Otherwise, let’s get right to this week, and its pretty light.
