Haven't heard much from him since. He was offered more money than what Artie currently gets. It was funny hearing the old tracks (couple weeks ago) of Jackie cackling after Robin reads a tragic newstory.

yeah I heard Stern said he had no idea what they offered Jackie, and was even more shocked when he turned it down. I think they said it was like 4 to 5 million a year for 4 years.

I think it was closer to $1M per/yr. That is great money for a radio gig, especially when you're not even the #1 guy. Artie said he gets about $750K, but it bumps up another 1/2M with appearances and stand up.

Howard Stern is a weenie. He talks and says the same crap, he's decent when discussing global issues and gives his insight into things and when he actually gives interviews, then he's like "Whoa, dose are some nice boobs." and it's retarded. O-Rock 105.9 will be better off without him.

I happen to be an Opie and Anthony fan. However, satellite is the place for both shows. With the FCC as it is, neither show can be as good as it could be on AM/FM. I already have XM so I won't be adding Sirius, but I anticipate the old good Stern to return Jan. 9.

Stern still has his moments, but his constant whining got so freaking old after a while. The last show I listened to (about 4-5 months ago) was on my way to work and for the entire 1/2 hour it takes me to get coffee and park all I heard was how working in the current FCC climate sucked, and he was restrained and specifically targeted by teh FCC and such. It may be very well true but get on with show you asshat! I'll admit that I am an O&A fan, however Howard did basically invent (or at least further the genre further than anyone else) the "shock" radio genre; but his constant whining over the stealing of his ideas and the FCC; both valid complaints I agree but every day...come on.

I agree that it is tiring, but if his show doesn't pick up on Jan. 9 when he's on Sirius, I'd be surprised. I'm no big fan of Stern either, but shows like his and O&A (which I listen to as well) belong on Satellite.

As for Stern, he was funny back in the 90s. Yeah, after his divorce, he was funny again, but that only lasted a while. Maybe he'll be vintage Stern once he goes on Sirius.

I got it already. It's so much better being able to hear the music you want when you want without the all out advertising assault, forget about Howard. One of the coolest things about Howard being on Sirius is that you can hear his show througout the day so you can hear stuff you missed in the morning...that's awesome.

So they deinitely will be replaying his show throughout the day? I haven't really gotten a definitive answer on that. I figure they have to play something on those 2 channels 24/7. The west coast listeners will now be able to hear the entire show live from start to finish starting at 3am or tune into the other channel at 6am and listen to the tape delay version we've had out here for years.

I hope he gets better on Sirius because right now his show is not entertaining. I stopped listening in the middle of '04 when all he talked about was Bush going after him (sounded very paranoid) for 3 months straight. I agree with him that the FCC is ruining radio and in essence promoting satelitte radio. I just hope that Sirius didn't sign a death sentance by giving him half a billion dollars. Acutally I don't care - I have and love XM.

He used to be such a Bush supporter, to the point he annoyed me. What could have changed his mind to make him dislike Bush so much?


If he brings in 1 million subscribers at $12.95/mo, that's $13M per month, $156M per year.

An excerpt from the new Newsweek article hitting stands this week and can be read here:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/10312484/site/newsweek/page/2/

"Ironically, some fans believe that the shows in recent years have been among his best because Stern has to fight so hard. There is an undeniable passion and currency to his programs that's unlike anything else on the air. His diatribes against the thought police on both the right and the left come spilling out like soliloquies, and are often backed up with evidence—like the time he wanted to play a tape of Oprah talking about sexual acts, only to be told that not only could he not say the same words Oprah did, he couldn't even play her on tape saying them. "Talk about censorship," Stern says."

Are you kidding? He's been mailing it in for 2 years and blaming Bush and the FCC for it. It's a shame that the country is so conservative and concerned with stupid stuff like a radio show, but he uses this to say he can't do "his" show. Meanwhile he doesn't have to be as creative as he used to be because he can't do anything anyway. It's easier to do shows like this.

I'm not among those that think the last few years were his best (just passing the quote along). Come January 9th, he will not be able to blame Bush or the FCC, unless of course they decide to start regulating satellite radio too.

Howard's a goofball. He kept jumping on Bush, when the FCC chairman that kept staying up his ass like a maniacal proctologist was a Clinton appointee. Oh well, Stern never claimed to be the brightest bulb on the string, I guess.

I think the novelty is gonna wear off real fast. The whole concept of the "shock jock" was you had to tune in every day or you might miss something wild. When the guy does the same crap day in and out, there's no shock. I'm assuming based on everything I've read that this will only get worse on Sirius.

Bye Howie. So glad I got XM (blissfully O&A-fee free for my listening protection).

Powell was appointed to FCC Chairman by Bush. Sikes, who he referred to on 60 minutes was appointed to Chairman by Bush's father.

Stern also mentioned plenty of times during the Clinton years he was not happy that Clinton didn't get the FCC off his back either.

Here's some words of wisdom from Bush's current appointee:

http://blogs.phillyburbs.com/blog.php?p=3331&cat=14

When it comes to monitoring so-called indecent content on cable and satellite TV, FCC Chairman Kevin Martin wants to go to a place where the government shouldn’t - monitoring what we voluntarily pay to see and hear.

Martin feels that parental blocking tools such as TV ratings, the V-chip and optional channel locks on equipment required to receive cable and satellite TV, simply aren’t enough.

He told Congress yesterday, “You can always turn the television off and of course block the channels you don’t want,” he said, “but why should you have to?” :-rofl-:

Small correction: Powell was appointed in 1997 by Bill Clinton (a good move IMHO), and promoted to chair by Bush when the then-current FCC chairman stepped down. Bush didn't appoint nothin'. Only moved the guy up into a position that needed to be filled:

Powell To Resign As Head Of FCC (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A26085-2005Jan21.html)
By Frank Ahrens
Washington Post Staff Writer
Saturday, January 22, 2005

Powell, a telecommunications lawyer, is a former Army officer who left the service after suffering a near-fatal injury in a 1987 training exercise. He was appointed to the FCC by President Bill Clinton in 1997. After George W. Bush was elected president in 2000, Powell was elevated to the chair the agency.

So the story had been bent somewhat by Stern because he needs something to rant about. Eh.

What strikes me as amusing is that Stern would be "unhappy" with Clinton for not getting the FCC "off his back". Stern spent YEARS thumbing his nose at the laws that already existed on the books way before he ever decided to bring lesbians into the studio. These laws weren't written FOR him - they always existed...and he did a pretty good job - for a while - of getting away with them.

Then, all of a sudden the FCC decides to enforce the laws that, again - already existed - and Stern throws a cross on his back the size of which would have crushed Jesus. After all, this is all a conspiracy against him, so Howard believes (or would like US to believe).

So, in essence, Stern was upset that a) Bill Clinton wouldn't help him break laws that existed on the books, and b) is upset because Bush wouldn't do the same - and had the audacity to appoint a man to the position of FCC chairman that decided to start paying attention to the laws.

Uh huh.

My question always is - what is it exactly that makes people think Stern is above the law over everyone else?

I have also had PLENTY of run-ins (directly and indirectly) with the FCC. I could stand there and curse them (I often do!) but I don't have such a exponentially swelling head that I would think I was right for breaking the law. You take your lumps. You move on. Just seems to me that Howard is pretty good at dishing it out, but very VERY bad at taking it.

Of course, there's always MY theory - that Stern NEEDS someone to fight with. When he was at WNBC, it was the management (they didn't want o break the law, so THEY were his enemy). When he went to K-Rock, that disappeared. Stern HAD to have a new foil. So - he raised the hackles of the FCC. And when they bit at the bait, he took it personally.

Guess you can't win 'em all!

Clinton had to appoint Powell or some other Republican. You can't have more than 3 out of 5 people from the same party on the FCC.

Yes, on the street corner, in the comedy club, you can say anything you want and filthily as you please. However, the airwaves are regulated, and some of it is for semi-good reasons. Trust me, I know all about how the airwaves are regulated!

My beefs with the FCC have always been about station ownership and frequency allocation rules. I've never had a problem with content rules. Without them, every talk show or morning show would be constant uses of the words fu*k, cu*t and sh*t...but it seems some folks would be OK with that (if that is one's definition of "funny"). I'm certainly not a puritan by any stretch of the imagination, but what passes on the radio these days as "entertainment" boggles my friggin' mind.

I don't think the founding fathers had the Ichabod Stern Morning Show down in the town square to deal with.

I was just wondering who he is to say what should and should not be available to listen to? He says why should you have to block a channel you don't want. I'm saying, why should it not be available to those of us who want it when it as easy as not tuning in? Nobody forces people to do anything. In 2005 America, if you don't want to hear "shocking" radio/tv there are countless other stations that you can go to. It's all about variety.

They paid $500 million for 5 years. That's all of his staff, but obviously he gets the most. I guess he'll make $200 million for his Sirius run.

That's fine. Then FCC needs to enforce this universally across the board, including Oprah, soaps, and anything else on TV and radio that may be offensive. All hell would break lose if Oprah or Soaps had to tone down their shows. If rules are rules, then let's lay down some crystal clear guidlines and enforce them, not just when the FCC feels like it.

I actually heard $500m, but I figured I must've misheard this. Who makes $100m/yr?

Now if $100m/yr x 5 yrs = the entire production costs, then how does someone recoup that with $13/month subscribers? I'm talking just those that tune into his show, and w/o advertising.

$200m over 5 years? Jim Carrey couldn't make that much *cough-and at least he's funny-cough*. :P

Haha...silly goose, of course not. They are going with...and i'm not joking...David Lee Roth. Yep, that's the guy that is going to replace Howard. I think that alone is going to cause more people to buy satellite radio then Howard moving.

I actually heard $500m, but I figured I must've misheard this. Who makes $100m/yr?

Now if $100m/yr x 5 yrs = the entire production costs, then how does someone recoup that with $13/month subscribers? I'm talking just those that tune into his show, and w/o advertising.

$200m over 5 years? Jim Carrey couldn't make that much *cough-and at least he's funny-cough*. :P

I don't know what Sirius plans to do, but there is not much advertizing on Satellite radio, it is subscriber driven. Even if Stern doesn't bring in the extra $100 million a year, doesn't mean it won't be profitable. He is talking of retiring after the 5 years. Odds are, a sizable number of his fans will get accustomed to satellite radio and stick with it. That makes it worth it.

Well he can't talk for 4 hours without taking a break to eat and go to the bathroom. Not every channel on satelitte is commercial-free. Just the music stations. Opie & Anthony take breaks, but unlike on regular radio, they aren't for 20 minutes at a time. They probably take 30 minutes off during the entire 4 hour show.

I'm not talking the 4-6 breaks O&A talk for example when most of the advertizing is to publicize other channels. Campbell's Soup is one sponsor. I don't know how many commercials there will be.

I read an article (http://www.sptimes.com/2005/12/11/Artsandentertainment/Bubba__relaunched.shtml) about "Bubba the Love Sponge" talking about how:


"Howard and I are on the ground level of the next big thing in radio," added Clem, 39, who legally changed his first name from Todd to his on-air handle years ago. "When (satellite radio) does blow up - we'll be the pioneers. And Howard was the only person who has given us an opportunity."

Like them or not, Opie & Anthony have been on satellite for almost 15 months. Last I checked, they were the first "edgy" talk radio show to hit satellite.

Going further, I heard a clip of Howard talking about how much of a hack/ripoff/unoriginal Bubba the Love Sponge is, even saying at one point:


I don't want to be in an industry that has a Bubba the Love Sponge!"

Now they're best buddies?

I was expecting like most talk shows on XM do including O&A. O&A will take, on average 4-6 (more like 4) breaks in the 4 hour show. And most of the breaks the commercials are for other XM channels, they do have some ads for some outfits, but it sounds like Sirius is going with a regular commercials format like on terrestrial radio.

I liked Stern's other thought on Brad Pitt's "PR Move". Brad did one of the worst things you can do in Hollywood. He broke up with the "All American" nice girl Jennifer Aniston to get with the "Bimbo" and all while they were filming a movie. Most women should really be frowning on this. But now Brad Pitt holding up babies in Africa and now women can't dislike Pitt. Now its just a theory from Stern, but not a bad one.

You should hear the commercials terrestrial radio is planning on airing very soon that take a dig at satellite. They have been playing them on Howard 100. One them has a ball game playing (on satellite radio) and a big play is happening, then all of the suddent the game cuts off and a phone operater asks to "please deposit 25 cents" Of course that really doesn't happen but we get the point.

Someone replied to the story that people will not pay for satellite radio about as soon as they stop paying their cable bill.

So far in the first few weeks I have had satellite there are a lot of stations I like that have nothing to do with Stern.

If you have a Sirius unit now, hold off until spring. If you don't, go the inexpensive route. I believe Sirius is coming out with some new models in the spring that will be worth the wait. I know on the XM side you can get a basic set up for around $30 for the lowest level unit. People call AM/FM "free radio". I don't.

A very sad day, though. The only good thing about terrestrial radio is officially gone. The show ended a little abruptly, though. I expected him to say a little more to the radio audience before he went down to give his speech.

Diamond Dave's not working for you? ;)

I don't think I could listen to him for more than 5 minutes.


Yup, since there's no baseball Howard was the last show I listened to on radio.

I stopped listening to M&MD (just listen to the interviews online sometimes) and TMKS and I don't really need WINS since I don't drive to work so I don't need any traffic reports (which they're never right anyway.)

I'm still 50/50 on getting satellite radio though.

Yankees on the radio. Yup that's it. The sports talk shows are all commercials and updates (which I can get on the internet whenever I want and in much more detail).

I've decided to get Sirius. I was 50/50 a month ago.

Yeah I was going to get it as well until I found out that you cannot actually receive live transmissions. You need to download and save content while the S50 is in the docking station and you can listen to it later "on the go". It's a lot of money for a glorified MP3 player.

I can't wait to hear Howard on Sirius. What I love most about all the hype is that more and more consumers are hearing about satellite radio. I can't even begin to describe how much better it is than terretrial radio.

It's crappy that Sirius is trying to call it "portable". It's also weird how the XM2go is truly portable and was out for last Christmas and Sirius still hasn't caught up.

My one complaint of Sirius is that their hardware is always behind XM's. But I heard that Delphi (the company that creates a lot of XM's devices) is going out of business, so it will be interesting to see how that affects their hardware releases next year.

I bought the Starmate Replay a couple of days after Christmas with a couple of gift card I received. Installed it in my car and it works like a dream.

I've had a heck of a time finding a Home Kit for the thing. No one has them. This morning at around 8am I found one online at Circuit City. I ordered it for pick up at a Store around 12 miles from my home. Picked it up and got that thing all set up.

I'm not sure the thing will work at my Office. I'll see on Monday morning.

Even without Howard, Sirius is great.

As far as the office, I think it depends on the size of the building. If you are in a smaller office building, I'd be much more optimistic. I work in a larger one with a lot of fluorescent lights and I can't get reception at work. I generally record programming at home and then listen to it while at work.

I got Sirius last year in anticipation of Stern's move to satellite, however I still haven't figured out how I'm going to listen to him at work. I got the Sirius boombox for Christmas this year thinking it would be the answer, but I can't get reception inside my office. I imagine they're going to re-run his show later in the day but I haven't heard anything for certain yet.

If anyone's interested, it does appear that starting in March, VOD will carry Stern's satellite show as well as 24/7 Stern programming for $13.95 a month.

Sounds like a better deal than Sirius if that's all you're getting it for. For the same amount of money, and no extra equipment needed, you get to SEE as well as hear him and at any time - at your convenience. If there aren't any other Sirius programs that you're interested and you want commercial-free music in your car, do what I do - get an iPod car adapter if you have an iPod.

For the past few months it was just a clever way for him to provide content on his Sirius channel while still under contract with Viacom. He is not allowed to actually appear on Sirius while under contract, but this allowed him to hype his new show under the context of a "news" channel. He never actually appeared on the news show, but his team of "reporters" constantly provided recaps of the terrestrial show as well as updates on the move to Sirius. I would imagine that Howard100 News will eventually go away once he develops new programming for the channel. Otherwise he's just being lazy.

I'm a huge Stern fan, but I really did not find Private Parts to be exceptionally funny. IMO it was decent, but not great. I thought that the radio bits that they chose to re-enact to illustrate how he earned the "shock jock" label were far from his best material. I will say that Paul Giamatti's performance in that movie is incredibly underrated, and Fred was actually pretty funny.

Memo to Howard: Beetle Juice and the misfits you trot out there are NOT funny, and more annoying than anythign else. Ditto Artie Lange and his forced, poor-man's attempt at Belushi -style humor that you yourself strain to laugh at, trying to convince yourself he was the right choice. Lange does nothing but repeats OVER AND OVER what you pretended to laugh at and interrupts you at the worst time with irrelevancies, often breaking the flow.

DO get the talented Fred Norris back in the fold (since Jackie left and Artie came on, Fred became an afterthought) and try to get someone as good as Stuttering John was (before he became recognized) to wreak havoc at press conferences and ask celebrities sick questions.

Oh, lesbians kissing don’t shock anymore, and porn stars who have nothing to say and sit on your lap are f'n boooring. DO talk about current events (your strongpoint), and take phony "stars" to task. That's when you're at your best.

Howard said their working on that, and I'm sure it will wind up online eventually. The home kit is $99 bucks, upwards of $300 on eBay. The problem is there so rare because they kind of put some out, kinda not. When I called like a month ago, they said January 4th/5th. Now i'm hearing another ten days. I'm very frustrated, not just with this, but the overall Sirius customer service. When I called about the home kit, the person had no idea what I was talking about, and clearly being coached what to say, as I could hear their supervisor telling them what to say behind them. I'm calling tomorrow and trying to get an answer, which won't happen. Had I known all these problems, I would have waited.

I've had Sirius for 3 years with multiple receivers without any signal problems both in the car and at home. Where do you live?

I've had Sirius for 3 years with multiple receivers without any signal problems both in the car and at home. Where do you live?

Just outside Seattle. Lots of hills and trees in the terrain. For the most part, I get 3 bars on "TER" and if I get the antenna about 30 feet from my window, I can get 3 bars on "SAT". In the car I will still get pretty much the same amount of bars with the occassional 6 on SAT. In the car, my signal holds up fairly well, but most of my listening is at home.

Generally, I get reception for the first 20-30 minutes, then it cuts out. If I turn it off for a while (15 minutes or so) and turn it back on it will work for maybe 15 minutes, but I have yet to have the radio on for an hour straight without problems.

I may just get another receiver and test it on the free weather channel not activate it) and see how long it holds the signal. If it works then I know its a crappy receiver. It just seems strange I can get a signal whenever the radio is shut off for awhile.

I did see on the Sirius site, that they had a link to sign up to get updated when Howard starts streaming, which I'll take as a sign that it will happen. If that's the case I'll hold out.

Isn't that the $99 Home Kit?

I don't understand why they do not stream his show online. XM streams just about everything. I've only put up with half this crap from Sirius because of Howard, but if I can't hear him at home in the morning like I used to, then I'm on to XM.


This isn't true at all. What XM streams:

Is XM Radio available over the Internet?Yes -- now you can listen to all of XM's commercial-free music channels as well as Bob Edwards, Opie and Anthony, Comedy and Kids programming online.

Sirius does the same thing, music, comedy and a few other channels.


The only difference is Bob Edwards and O&A, whereas, Howard will be streaming within weeks i'm sure.

I've had Sirius for 3 years with multiple receivers without any signal problems both in the car and at home. Where do you live?


I figured out a way to get reception in my office with the boombox. I have to listen to the show in a conference room with the satellite at the extreme corner of the room next to a window and it still cuts in and out every now and then. Not very convenient, but at least it's an option.

Problem solved! I went out today and got the Starmate Replay (Had Starmate 1) and have been listening to the free weather channel with no problems and very few disruptions for over an hour. I get 6 bars on TER and sometimes all the way to 10 and the antenna just sits in my window.

The old one would usually be 3 bars and once in while, blink to 6 bars (if I put the antenna 30 feet outside), but I have never seen 10 bars until today. So its obvious what my problem was.

Here's what pisses me off about Howard (for real). He is claiming to be the pioneer of satellite radio. Like them of not, O&A have been on satellite for 15 months before he switched. That is what really gets under my skin about him. He has to have all the credit. Even if you love Howard, you can't deny that he is lying when he calls himself the pioneer when he was not the first "shock" radio show to switch to satellite.

Even if you love Howard, you can't deny that he is lying when he calls himself the pioneer when he was not the first "shock" radio show to switch to satellite.
But I think this is just another example of how much bigger Howard is than O&A. No offense to O&A fans, but really outside of their hardcore fan base, nobody knows who they are. Howard on the other hand, love him or hate him, is widely known across America. He could have renewed his contract with Infinity but he chose to leave terrestrial radio to move to satellite. That's a lot different than O&A who essentially were forced to take a job on satellite because they were fired from their terrestrial job and had nowhere else to go.

So no, Howard is not the "first" radio personality to move to satellite technically speaking, but he is to date the most famous, or perhaps most infamous personality to do so, and more importantly, the first radio personality with a large national audience to move to satellite. Therefore his move to satellite is going to have much more of an impact than O&A's because it's going to get much more attention, and consequently could influence a number of other high profile personalities to make the jump to satellite in addition to bringing countless numbers of listeners. Essentially his move to satellite legitmizes the medium to a large extent.

Just to clear up a few things regarding O&A from above. They had other options other than satellite once their Infinity contracts expired. Because Infinity would not let them out of their deals, they couldn't sign anywhere. Once their contracts expired, they had terrestrial deals on the table, but saw the future in satellite. So to say they didn't have any options simply isn't true.

Before they were fired, O&A were syndicated and #1 in NYC, Philly, Sacramento, and a few other markets (which I cannot recall off the top of my head). Calling Stern "the first radio personality with a large national audience to move to satellite" is not true, either. Is Stern the biggest? Of course. But Opie and Anthony had a large national following as well.

You can't reasonably believe that every single person who got it between then and now did so just for Howard though.
No, of course not. There's no way to quantify the exact number of Sirius subscriptions that are attributable to Howard, but the fact remains that 2.4 million people purchased a Sirius subscription after his deal was announced. Just my opinion, but I do not believe that Sirius would have survived had they not signed Stern.

Just to clear up a few things regarding O&A from above. They had other options other than satellite once their Infinity contracts expired. Because Infinity would not let them out of their deals, they couldn't sign anywhere. Once their contracts expired, they had terrestrial deals on the table, but saw the future in satellite. So to say they didn't have any options simply isn't true.

O&A had offers from both XM and Sirius but chose XM.

Even prior to that, O&A had several options. Infinity offered them to go back on the air provided that they claim responsibility financially for any FCC fines, never mention the incident that got them suspended (they were never fired) and they could not mention the name of anyone at Infinity (which included Stern). And Infinity also offered to release them from their contract if they signed an agreement stating that at whatever station they ended up at, they also couldn't do those terms listed above. O&A chose not to as they wanted to be able to talk about anything and anyone.

It's very easy to read incorrect articles and say O&A had no choices or offers, but the facts are otherwise.

Of course not, but that's not the issue. You made a comparison of O&A coming to XM vs. Howard coming to Sirius. There is no comparison. Howard made Sirius a destination for peopel, O&A had no such effect.

In fact, someone correct me if my memory is wrong, but initially wasn't XM offering O&A for an additional $2 a month and then decided to just bump up the price on all subscribers, giving everyone access to them?

I am an O&A fan, but I have nothing against Stern. Even if I believe what O&A say about them (to me I could care less as that's an issue between them) I don't waste my time worrying about another show. I primarily got XM for MLB (and since have found O&A and the music haven that satellite radio is), so even if O&A were to leave XM, I would stay with XM because of MLB.

I'm not sure if the increase in price was related to O&A going from $2 to free, but that is what happened. XM also though made free (it was $3.95 a month) streaming XM from the Internet at the same time. There is no question that Sirius is Stern (in terms of financial success) and XM is built around a bunch of stuff and not any one item.

When they were both on in NYC, I would listen to Howard in the morning, and O&A in the afternoon. I found O&A funnier and more relevant to me because I believe they speak and think the way my friends and I do. To me, Howard doesn't do that.

When O&A went to satellite, I specifically bought XM because of them, so XM was a destination, for this person, because of O&A.
