Why would Mel Karmazin ever think of leaving his number one spot for working under another back inside cable. Already having that experience with Viacom, why expect that it will be any different at a proposed NBC-Comcast company. Well, to squash those rumors, Mel addressed them recently. "Speaking Monday to Neil Cavuto on Fox Business Network, Sirius XM CEO Mel Karmazin said he's got no intention of leaving the satellite radio company." Frankly, I was a little surprised to hear that it would be a possibility. Sirius has an opportunity to be so much more. Rather, Mel should stay close with John Malone and consider heading a merger of Direct TV and Sirius. That could provide greater synergy and give Mel a bigger company to run.
