XM Radio Channel Change for ReachMD, the Channel for Medical Professionals

NORTHBROOK, IL--(Marketwire - May 2, 2011) - ReachMD, an award-winning provider of professional medical news, information and continuing medical education, moves from XM 160 to XM 167 on May 4, 2011 as part of an XM Satellite Radio channel reordering. The change will have no impact on ReachMD's programming or other business operations.

"It's a simple shift from XM 160 to XM 167 that will now cluster us with other talk and news channels on XM radio," said Gary Epstein, CEO of ReachMD.

When subscribers turn on their XM radio on May 4th, the radio may take 2-5 minutes to receive updates from the XM satellites, according to XM. All radio preset buttons should automatically be updated during this process. If preset updates do not take place, listeners should reprogram their preset buttons as instructed in the XM radio manuals.

The ReachMD MedicalRadio app for iPhone and BlackBerry, and XM streams and podcasts will not need any updates or be affected in any way.
