    Nice to be watching CBS2 news here in NYC when 5 minutes in there's our boy Steve Langford doing one of the top stories. Here's a guy who felt he was getting a raw deal with H100 news, left suddenly, and wound up on his feet with a great gig. Sure, I miss him being part of the ONLY thing that made H100 News tolerable, but I'm glad he's happy and doing well.

    It was interesting to hear Howard this week talk about anyone who's left the show hasn't gone on to do anything "worthwhile."

    They did bring up Stuttering John as one of the "successes", but there was only the briefest of mentions of Steve Langford.

    Langford was off the show for a month before Howard acknowledged he was no longer with the show.

    ... and the best part for him is that he's not stuck covering retards and shitheads who can't even write their name with a crayon. And is covering things that are important to people.

    Steve Langford is one of the few people to have the balls and be proactive, leaving the show as it's sinking. Everyone else are either too lazy to figure out a better situation or living in denial that the end is nigh.

    I don't even remember Steve's name coming up, it was Stuttering John and then quickly to bash the likes of Jackie and KC, etc.

    Good for Langford. One of you twitter people should tweet Howard and tell him that not only does Langford have a bigger penis, he also has more backbone than the joo.

    I think Langford realized that working for Stern was a dead end career wise. He got out of there at the first opportunity. Smart move.

    Steve, up until he got yelled at for his kid getting an interview for her school from George Takei, thought H100 was a real news gig. He never got that it was a comedy news team. Once that sank in he couldn't get out of there fast enough. Penny didn't get it either but it was simpler to can her over her melt downs. Steve didn't hear them laughing their asses off at him and his cnnesque approach to the H100 yellow jacket. Langford bled yellow for years when he assumed he was free to do real news stories like the prison system in PA after KKK died, or getting Janks ass hauled through the court system when bar owners figured out free advertising from Steve beat being out the cash from Janks.

    That Day that Lanford refused to come out of his back office and take his puppy kick'n like a man his fate was sealed. Stern had no more use for Steve and his Real News Man background. You never take it upon yourself to use Stern's name for your own, or your children's gain. If Jackie couldn't get away with it after all the time he had put in what made Langford think he was above the number one unwritten rule? Howard's memory is always faulty until it comes to his being slighted by anyone. He holds onto those memories like a bulldog, like a Steve the Bulldog Langford

    While Langford partook in the goofiness he wanted to do some serious stuff too.
    I'm sure he was told that there would be no interest or budget for doing serious stories and the fake goofy staff filler was going to get more ponderous.

    Langford openly critiqued Howard.
    Howard talked about Langford's kids and Langford was banned by Howard doing any stories about Howard kids. The double standard was openly discussed by Langford on HowardTV.

    Langford ranted about how its hard doing his job with so many "off limit" topics. But why aren't there any "off limit" topics for Howard?

    Scott Eingizer was ridiculed by Stern for leavi g to be the EP of the Amazing Race. 10 Emmys later, who's laughing now? He also was the EP of Big Brother.

    Do u think Stern would trade half his wealth for prestige and respect from his peers. A la a Jon Stewart (another guy Stern would make fun of), Colbert, and Seth Macfarlane( someone HS has never heard of)?

    i missed the george takei interview bit but knowing george, i'm sure he didn't mind.
    howard is very possessive of everyone who works for him and apparently feels he has a right to tell them how to behave even in private which is why he'll never forgive stuttering J for leaving. even if the jay leno show ceased to exist tomorrow john will have made more money than he would have if he stayed with howard for 20 yrs.

    btw, scott einziger is a very good example of someone who left at the right time and became very successful...i had forgotten about him. i wonder where robin radzinski is working...she's another one who left on their own.

    Robin Radzinski Wong produces a show for the Style Network.



    Did she marry a chinaman?

    Does she still fuck Negroes while vacationing in the Caribbean?

    I like how Howard refuses to acknowledge Billy West....who went on to tons of success. Billy was the funniest part of the HSS when he was there...and has gone onto shows that are much funnier than Howard could ever hope to be.

    Howard is SO fucking jealous that Billy West has real talent.
