XM Hits 5M

Florida Avenue-based XM Satellite Radio has surpassed the five million subscriber mark–meaning that the network has been adding subscribers at a rate of over 70,000 a week since its May 4M announcement.

Tonight at XM, friends and colleagues will gather for a special one-year anniversary party/taping honoring the arrival of former NPR legend Bob Edwards to the satellite radio network. The network is now twice as large subscriber-wise as it was when he joined.

How’s that for some rapid growth?
