XM's JAY THOMAS will oversee the former XM channel US Country, which is now being called Prime Country. The former SIRIUS Bluegrass channel (now known as Bluegrass Junction) and former XM America channel (now called The Roadhouse) will be programmed by XM's KYLE CANTRELL.
With the changes made, the following people have exited: XM's X-Country PD JESSIE SCOTT (email@example.com) and XM's America MD/night personality/Specials Coordinator COUNTRY DAN DIXON (firstname.lastname@example.org).
