    The Howard Stern Show
    posted on April 08, 2014 by Dan


    I appeared on the Howard Stern Show yesterday morning...Stern is one of the best interviewers in radio-TV. He is prepared, incisive, listens and is alert and quick. (As one who prides himself on doing his homework, I was impressed with how much he had done.) Robin Quivers, who does news inserts and is otherwise a key player in Stern's universe, is so personable one finds oneself wanting to spend more time talking with her. Gary Dell'Abate, Stern's long-time producer, makes the whole operation hum. And what an operation. Their studios, the hub of Stern's media empire, are expansive, expensive and first rate down to the small details. Impressed? Yes, and trust me I've been in and around a lot of radio and television operations in my time.

    That reads like a Buchwald press release - what exactly is the 'media empire' that Howard has these days? He's got his Sirius/XM channels, but there's no more HTV - maybe Dan is giving him credit for posting stupid pictures online and being a judge on a second-rate talent show.

    H101 is 90% tapes from 1995. Not much of an empire

    Howard Stern is the most over rated broadcaster/entertainer in modern history. Whenever anyone speaks of him they reference the legend not the facts. This is a man that left terrestrial radio because of censorship only to cut off his own balls because his cunt second wife doesn't like "racy" humor. Howard Stern is a sham and his show fucking blows. Maybe the fucking hypocrite is better off modge podging with Rosie O'Donnel. (note: i can't believe i used Stern's name, modge podge and Rosie O'pumpkin head in the same sentence :facepalm: )

    remember Rather works for Mark Cuban's new media venture. This sounds like it was written by someone who thinks they could get Robin to join or maybe Howard.
    Also sounds like maybe Rather is one of Howards paid instructors on journalism.

    You know Howard is going to read this on the air and take credit for all the research Will did for Howard.

    Howard is only well researched because his staff has all the time in the world to research his guests. I thought about it. He has 110 shows a year. You have to say that a third of those shows he has no guests whatsoever. Another third of those shows are repeat guests who are on the show every 3 months to a year where minimal amounts of research needs to be done. So that leaves about 33 shows where they have guests that they need to actually do research for. Say they average 1.5 guests per those shows (and that is high). That means they have to research about 45 guests a year. And with the show on only 2-3 times a week and about three weeks a month, the Stern staff has a lot of time to Google the guests and get a huge amount of information. And even then, they get a lot wrong.

    So say minus vacations, Will works about 230 days a year. That means he has about 5.4 days per guest to research each guest. If you can't get a load of research for an one hour interview in that much time, you should be fired. Hell, I wrote 20 page research papers in a day in college.

    By the way, the homework that Rather was impressed with is that Howard and his staff found out Rather was still alive and wanting to come on the air. I think most news and interview shows do not realize that.

    I love Marc Cuban. I watch him on Shark Tank. Now that's an entertaining show.
