SiriusXM names veteran media executive Mike Connolly as its new head of advertising sales. He'll oversee SiriusXM's ad sales efforts across its lineup of channels that take advertising, which includes entertainment, news, comedy and sports. Connolly comes to SiriusXM from ESPN, where for the last eight years he had been Vice President of Advertising Sales and Affiliate Sales for ESPN Audio Network. Prior to ESPN, he served as Senior VP/Ad Sales for both Citadel Communications and ABC Radio Networks.

"I've been a longtime listener of SiriusXM content and have always been a huge fan," said Connolly. "A vast majority of my career has been in radio sales so the opportunity to lead the sales effort at SiriusXM is a dream come true."

"Mike is a proven ad industry executive and we are excited to have him lead SiriusXM's ad sales team and continue its strong sustained growth," said SiriusXM's President/Chief Content Officer Scott Greenstein. "Mike's extensive experience in audio entertainment will be of crucial importance to SiriusXM as our programming depth and variety expand and the national audience of subscribers and listeners continues to rise."

Connolly succeeds Bette Rockmore who has run SiriusXM's ad sales efforts since 2009 and is moving into a teaching role at Pace University.
