    "....The idea that the audience pays to hear it, I feel more of an obligation to deliver a great show and to evolve, to make my show new every day, and to find new talent and create new channels...."

    "...The relationship with SiriusXM is great. [Editor's note: In 2011, Stern and his agent, Don Buchwald, filed a lawsuit against SiriusXM for allegedly failing to pay promised stock bonuses for helping the company exceed targeted audience growth. The suit was dismissed in 2012.]

    This is my dream, and I feel like we've created a new home for broadcasters. I'm doing radio the way I wanted to as a little kid. Language isn't an issue. I don't have the government up my ass. It's fantastic. It's a great place to broadcast.

    ".......We have a lot of ways we can go, and I don't know what the best way is, so I'm seeking the advice of experts. We're in a very aggressive discussion. People with real jaws are going to have an app, an environment. They're not going to need anything. Your fans are going to be able to talk to each other. You're going to have your own universe. We're so close....."

    Fuck, this makes me want to take an upper cut at his glass jaw for this bullshit.

    Obviously the guy who interviewed him hasnt listened to Howard 101 the last 3 years.

    Your contract with SiriusXM runs out at the end of 2015. Where do you see yourself in two years?

    I don't know. There's no reason to leave. It's pretty fucking great. They're adapting. They understood from the beginning that content was the thing that was going to drive this model...................

    I'd say he should be embarrassed to hurl that much unadulterated lying bullshit. However, he's doing it with impunity cuz he's become so irrelevant that the universe which understands how patently and laughably false these statements are at this point number even fewer than those still believing Lance Armstrong wasn't a cheater. The twitterazzi puppet needs to set the record stright!

    "....Could you, after having Sirius XM, go back to listening to terrestrial radio? Could you ever go back to listening to all of the commercials?

    "..... I knew I could do a lot of business with satellite and that we could really change things. I got extra bold and said, "I think we'll take XM. We'll gobble their ass up, too." When I met with XM, I said, "I think whichever one of you hires me will end up winning." Sirius believed me, and I don't think XM did....."


    Merger pre-pre-plotting?

    Who could've imagined? I swear to God on a stack of bibles, when I first got into radio, I was this guy just trying to make a living for $250 a week. That was my goal. I never thought I'd ever have any money. I just wanted to do a really wild show.

    "...I've always managed to make a lot of money for my employers. I've always worked with the sales department. Those people put in so many hours. Any broadcaster who doesn't have respect for their sales department is a fool, and you will not succeed. You have to work in tandem with the sales department...."

    Was your early fascination with radio due to the personalities you heard?

    "I didn't listen to a lot of talk radio. The guy I listened to growing up was Bob Grant....."
