(The Hollywood Reporter) -- XM Satellite Radio's Canadian licensee said it has hired Michael Washinushi as CFO of its Canadianized satellite radio service.

Washinushi joining XM Canada follows stints as executive VP of Scott's REIT and director of development and acquisitions at Priszm Canadian Income Fund. Both companies manage a portfolio of real estate holdings.

XM Canada, which will launch an 80-channel subscription radio service for Canadians before Christmas, also hired Stewart Lyons, formerly at Scotia Capital, as executive VP responsible for legal and regulatory affairs.

The executive suite also will see Colin Bettam come on board as senior VP of marketing and sales, after serving as VP of marketing at Coors Canada, and Ross Davies as VP of programming. A former VP of programming at Chum Radio, Davies most recently operated his own broadcast consulting company.
