On the heels of Howard Stern signing a five-year deal with Sirius, Mel Karmazin, the former president of Viacom is set to step into the CEO position at Sirius. The announcement was made last week on the same day that Stern promoted Sirius in Manhattan.

In June, Karmazin left Viacom, and when he arrives at Sirius he will replace Joseph Clayton, who will stay on as a chairman. Karmazin was Stern’s old boss at Infinity Broadcasting, who began as a station manager and through corporate acquisitions became responsible for day-to-day operations of Viacom’s media outlets, such as CBS (which owns Infinity Broadcasting), MTV, VH1, Paramount, etc.

After leaving Viacom, Karmazin said in interviews that he wished to return to a rapidly growing company, and after speaking with Sirius executives, he believes that “It’s not just the right thing — it’s the only thing.”
