In its discussions with the National Action Network (NAN) and the National Association of Black Organizations (NABO) yesterday morning, XM Satellite Radio maintained its support of the African-American community in the United States.

"XM's commitment to the African-American community goes beyond just programming," the company said in a statement. "We have informed NAN that we currently have a programming partnership with DC-area based 'Radio One,' the nation's largest African-American owned radio company, which programs five channels including 'Spirit,' the first national 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week Gospel channel, and 'The Power,' the first national African-American talk channel, featuring Joe Madison, DC's own 'Black Eagle.'"

Despite no conclusion as to whether the satellite radio company will carry NAN-promoted "The Word Network," XM has stated its full support and continued delivery of a diverse channel lineup.

Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton said, "XM is greatly admired by Washingtonians, particularly on two important counts - its decision to be an urban pioneer by bringing groundbreaking satellite radio facilities to the inner city neighborhood and its extensive programming that shows a keen appreciation for African-American audiences and for its location in a majority African-American city."
