How should it have been handled, had Sirius not been grasping at straws to keep their company afloat? IMO, they should have given Howard a base salary and a fucking BUDGET. And by "BUDGET", I mean a monetary sum to be spent on the show exclusively. Not 500 million marbles all to himself, that he could hoard and then dole-out as he saw fit. That is what killed the formerly-awesome Howard Stern Show. What say you in this matter?
