    As if the Wrap Up Show couldn't be filled with more kiss-ass, bullshit, shaft-stroking, ass-lathering, ego-driven propaganda to convince the audience the "genius of Howard" and the reach of his audience, Baba Booey took it a step further.

    The constant Howard Kiss Ass routine is professionally done by John Hein. However, yesterday Gary was talking about Sal and brought up how the show has 75 employees.

    They keep firing people every other day. Howard TV, Howard News, Artie, Tim, Doug Goldstein, Lisa G, Elisa Jordana, etc. They do keep the interns because they don't have to pay them.

    What is worse, saying you have 75 employees when your really have 18? Or, having 75 employees and putting on a 3 day a week radio show with 12 weeks of vacation that won't interview comedians, do sketches, contests, bits, air video, and is basically an interview show of celebrities reading questions off their Wikipedia page. Either choice is a joke.

    They're lucky to have 25 employees now.

    So Gary is almost as crazy as Howard

    Not sure why the show would need more than 5-6 paid employees at this point.

    Since they started making them pay interns, this may be true.

    No, actually they say there are "paid internships". I dunno, I don't inhabit that world.

    Agree.

    At first, I thought... well, maybe the number of on-air personalities has diminished, but could have that many employees including all the back office and support people. Then, I thought about it. No radio station would have 75 employees for one radio show ... never. Typically like 4-5. Maybe, Stern does do commercials so there could be a sales staff dedicated to this one show... but 75 on air and off air? Makes no sense.

    You KID - but if you factor in Buchwald's ppl, Fitzsimmons, Jay Thomas crew, 3 hair stylists, 6 body guards, Marianne, Bobo, drivers, wigdependent con-man-tractors etc it might actually come to that.

    I think Gary counts ANYONE remotely affiliated with that wretched wigfrastructure now as an "employee". This, to paint Wig Vomit like some benevolent equal opportunity employer - right off the Buchwald script. Akin to his lies and padded stats in every facet of Howard's perpetual wigtitious life.
