    I was reading my old blog and there was an article posted where Howard was quoted as saying "I can say with almost certainty that this is my final five years on radio."

    I think he is done after this year, and what would be more fitting than a knock down radio war being launched on the next show. STERN NATION ARE YOU READY!!!??????!!!

    Wiggy's other options are podcasting (he's too cheap to buy his own equipment) and SIM cards...

    I say he will. You know why? Wiggy was told to get a colonoscopy before signing his last contract, for insurance purposes. He just had another one within the last month. Because of this, I say yes, he will sign.

    Of course..he needs the attention. He will be/is the Larry King of Sirius. Ode and washed up.

    And instead of signature suspenders...he has those stupid scarves.

    I hope he retires, so he and his wife can further fade away into obscurity.

    This. He has no where else to go, and his vanity won't let him depart the scene entirely.

    Back to FM? His own TV show? Subscription podcast? No, No and No. Ratings or verifiable download count are Howard's kryptonite now.

    This, this.

    What the fuck else is he going to do? Hang out at his mansions having loads of fun with his wife like he does on his four day weekends now?

    You need to have something to break up the time in-between therapy sessions.

    I think he just likes things stuck up his ass.

    Couldn't give a shit as to whether or not he comes back but I think @Mlaw has the long format interview thing right.

    I think Howard wants to retire and sit at home in Florida doing some kind of pod/line show, but Beth will try to talk him into another contract in NY. He has said she says he should keep doing AGT. So......

    Howard cannot be out of the spotlight. He is going to be one of those celebrities who cannot accept that their moment in the sun is over and will take whatever shit job to keep them on camera some way. I can see Howard doing late night informercials or a cheesy reality show just to be in the spotlight in some way.
