Is Country Music's Hitmaker at SiriusXM?

4-14-14

That's what the Wall Street Journal is reporting. He is programmer John Marks. Marks programs The Highway channel on SiriusXM and The Journal reports that despite a miniscule audience, compared to FM Radio, The Highway channel is wielding a "disproportionate influence" on music sales.
