INDIANAPOLIS -- James Meyer, CEO of SiriusXM Radio, will kick off the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing's Industry Lecture Series at IUPUI on Sept. 27.
Meyer will focus on the delivery of entertainment and information services to the mobile consumer in a talk titled "Connected Devices and Digital Entertainment."
