    Howard hyping the birthday bash on twitter this weekend, and now saying that AGT was a goof implying that the radio show is now his priority smells of contract negotiation. ..

    Lets face it even the biggest Stern suck ass has to admit a pussified Stern has no future on network tv... so Howards two mansions and huge NY apartment ain't going to suck their own dicks, someone has to pay the bills..

    So my guess is that old wig Stern is trying to con Sirius again as we speak

    howard does not care for a second about putting on a good show anymore it's all about being in the spotlight. he cannot live without thinking he's the king of all media so yes he WILL resign but only for a one year contract and do the same thing next year. then he will be done.

    he knows beth will leave him the second she can't get free gigs anymore off his name.

    Howard ain't retiring from radio.
    Stern ain't going anywhere that has regular ratings or download data visible to the public.

    If they were dumb enough to sign him for big bucks last time, they may waste more money on him this time. I can imagine 2 to 3 days a week with 20 plus weeks off for vacation. If they were smart, they would only sign him for a greatly reduced amount. But like I said they are pretty dumb.

    When Stern is over hyping the crap on his channels and talking about great new things in the works you know the prank is on!
    If he starts calling into the WUS or Robin and Fred drop by to chat with Booey and Hein......you know the contract talks are getting hot and heavy

    I hope SXM has the balls to tell Howard it's over and there will not be a 3rd contract.

    it's never enough. He can't just enjoy his millions he has to make more and more and more even in his old age looking like an AIDS patient just so someone else doesn't make it

    If it's "yes", then the assumption is that he still makes them $? I don't see how that is still the case. Maybe they would be scared of "millions" canceling service. But I just don't see it.

    i just don't see why people would pay for satellite radio anymore. With streaming music services like Spotify, Rdio and iTunes Radio the only thing satellite can provide is talk radio and THSS is just not worth a Sirius subscription. He's been half assin' it for the last 4 years.

    Less effort, smaller audience, worse show, less money, all accompanied by a pathetic scripted "conflict" complete with sympathy cards, empty threats of greener pastures and fake anger as it ramps up as agt ramps down and persists every day until he announces that a deal that has been reached months ago as recent developments and denies that the whole publicity stunt ever happened.

    Howard Stern has no audience. Sirius would be foolish to resign him. Stern is worthless.

    Howard isn't a superstar, but he is profitable.

    I think it is a huge plus that Stern has a big following in the media and entertainment business.
    If you watch the birthday show you can see Greenstein jerking off in that room full of amazing people.

    A lot of people have cancelled or did not renew sirius because of Howard (including myself). You really think
    they aren't aware of this? The media talks about howard. The fans don't.

    Radio is a weird business. We all know Sirus got suckered big time. They payed a boatload of money for The Howard Stern Show, but Howie did a "bait 'n switch" giving them The View instead. We all know they lost a lot of listers because of that, yet they re-signed him anyway. Therefore, one has to assume the Howard still has name value that must generate enough income for the company to keep him...or it is run by a bunch of blithering idiots. :unuts:
