    I know this isn't interesting to most people - but, if you have questions about how things work around Sirius, now might be a good time to ask @DannyJRoss.

    Danny Ross is a former O&A staffer and personal friend of Opie and Anthony. He was fired in December for attempting to bring a porn star to a One Direction appearance at Sirius.


    After Anthony called him a 'miserable fuck' on-air, he responded:

    He then claims no one listens to the O&A channel and they can't bill shit for ads:

    [​IMG]





    And, finally, he claims channel staff is not informed of their ratings:

    Nothing new, I know. But, it's rare a Sirius staffer speaks candidly about the company.

    Stern should bill 10x as much. He gets paid probably 20-30x as much. Stern is also a much bigger name so advertisers are likely to pay more for advertising on his show regardless of the ratings.

    I don't doubt O&A have shit ratings. The numbers published in 2007 showed they only have a few hundred thousand listeners. No one on Sirius get good ratings. Hence why they keep it from the staff.

    I'm officially an old fuck because I can never figure out who is talking to who on that Twitter thing. But it's interesting...I'm surprised to hear that Ross is on the outs with O&A...I have some vague recollection of them defending the guy when he was canned. It sure wasn't their fault that Sirius gave him the boot for his "joke" of taking a porn star to a kiddie concert.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Stern is still able to bill higher than O&A (or other channels), especially without the company releasing ratings. They can sell Stern on his (old) reputation as a ratings winner even when they know that few people actually tune in. It's probably another reason they don't mind it that he does AGT...his name is still out there and Sirius can capitalize on it with ad rates.

    Good post! Ask him what he knows about Levy being banned or something.

    cool...I'm one of the 20 people listening to O&A after switching to them from Stern. At least the 20 of us are getting some entertainment (live). Danny Ross is a bitter douche bag.

    I just had a thought:

    Of course it costs more to advertise on a Stern show... there are only a dozen live shows a year.

    understand this about levy

    he is 100% full of SHIT

    A month or two ago he was here talking about how he was demanding to be let into the building or he would release "sensitive" info about Howie. that and he was going to help double the user base here.

    Where is he now? What info did he release? Bob is a self serving moron with no real skills in this world. The only thing he can do is BS people and hope that is somehow ends up benefiting him. even if it does he will eventually light that bridge a blaze.

    I listen to O&A but there is no doubt Stern has huge ratings. That's why I never understand how Opie is jealous of Howard. Opie will sometimes act like they're both on the same level.

    Opie has around 170k followers on twitter. Howard has more than a million. There is no comparison.



    Also the guy asking why a grown man would go to a One Direction Concert....it was an event held at Sirius and they gave tickets to employees.

    Wiggy bought a million fake twitter followers from India.

    Wiggy has to be nice to MFB now so she shows up to be filmed at AGT and other events to pretend he has fans left.

    Don't listen to O&A, But these accalades thrown Hamptons way are baseless.... SXM probably considers him an albatross that they can't shed quickly enough.........

    One thing as per the copy machine: In this era of greater and greater electronic paper, the need for physical copies of anything is less than any other time in the history of offices.

    I actually know people who don't have a copier anymore. Now, it's a dipshit move on their part because copiers are still needed to a certain degree for official docs, but for the day-to-day shit?

    Nope. And that includes ratings. They can't create a PDF and email it to all relevant folks at Sirius?

    That alone makes me question the managers at that joint.

    The old people who run shit at companies barely know how to work email. I see that shit every day.

    Of course they need copying machines. They use them to make a copy to put in the fax. Can't fax that original right? :giggle:

    If Sirius made O&A available for free to Sirius based sub's I think they would have a hell of a lot more listeners. I refuckingfuse to give sirius another penny. Thier motto should be "less for more"
