Herb Kohl holds the title of President/Director of the Milwaukee Bucks. In 2005, the latest financial info I could gather on him, he has 68.7 million worth of stock in the company before expenses (http://www.opensecrets.org/pfds/pfd2005/... So where's the connection?

The Milwaukee Bucks will assume full responsibility for advertising sales on their radio broadcasts and buy the air time for their games that run on WTMJ-AM (620) beginning with the 2007-2008 season.
The Bucks and WTMJ management began informing their staffs and advertisers of the new arrangement Jan. 17 as part of a new broadcasting contract.
Currently Sirius is the provider for NBA, and if all XM subscribers went to Sirius, this would subtract greatly from the number of people who would listen to the games on WTMJ and cut into fat cat Kohl's pockets. This merger obviously should be approved, but I fear all the politcal games being played right now might stop it and if that happens I would lose what little faith I have left in our politicians.
