    I think he will. And he'll try to get that 112 show a year thing rounded off to a nice even 100.
    He'll take a 24 percent paycut and spin it as getting a 1 percent raise.

    I hope it's 3 seconds instead.

    Howard's birthday is 1/12. His production company is called 112 Productions. If he rounds his workdays down from 112 to 100, his OCD could cripple him.

    Holy shit, did he just claim in that clip that he has 13 million listeners? Even Stern68's fake persona can't defend that statement

    He probably counts people that hear a second of the show when it's playing in a car that just drove by.

    And he's still pushing that 7am start, so he can cut an hour out of his day.

    All his listeners drive 7 seat GMC Yukons. Plus the 2 dogs and the cat in the back... That makes 10 people per radio ... Duh, didn't you take Buchwald math in high school?

    He'll angle for a lot of things.

    But he'll sign any contract Sirius puts in front of him because he has zero other options.

    How shitty the contract will be will decide the kind of program the radio show will be. Fred, Gary and Robin have heavy salaries and they might "decided" to retire. The news might be gone but the provide an essential service by feeding Howard's ego so maybe not.

    He has found out that time travel is possible and there is a mother ship of bored morons, 12.5 million to be exact who listen to his show, this plus the 500K human listeners that listen now, 10K who listen to the whole show and the rest just pass thru his channel an listen for a show while.
