    Media consultant Ben Grossman — who shares my deep respect and affection for Howard Stern — told me about a visit he had not too long ago with his seven-year-old niece. Grossman, who was my successor as editor in chief of Broadcasting & Cable, had a grip-and-grin photo of himself with Stern on his desk. “Oh my God, you know Howard Stern!” his niece squealed..................................

    Howard is worthless he is judging a high school talent show. He hopes to be King of all Sim Cards soon.

    "The truth is, Stern has a wider audience than ever before. Post-merger, Sirius XM today has more than 25 million subscribers, and it has been estimated that as much as 60% of those subscribers tune in to Stern. Millions more stream his celebrity interviews posted online. A recent interview with Madonna garnered more than 250,000 views on YouTube alone. Online video from Howard Stern’s “60th Birthday Special” was watched by hundreds of thousands more."

    The Buckwald is strong with this peice.

    He crowned himself King of all Media?

    What does he crown himself with these days? Besides a wig?

    He jokingly named himself King of all Media a after Michael Jackson named himself King of All Pop. At the time Stern had a #1 movie, best selling books, a highly rated tv show and the #1 rated radio show in all the land.

    The reference to the number of views on the videos contradicts the wigs alleged 15M listener base (60% of 25M). There are just slinging shit at this point

    Decades of live radio and meticulous research — in addition to years of psychotherapy — have made Stern the best celebrity interviewer around. While there's no shortage of R-rated humor, what's mostly on display is a still-hilarious, but wiser, Howard Stern. He's a vocal advocate for gay marriage, LGBT issues — and, along with wife Beth, has become the kind of animal rights advocate he might once have mocked.:confused:

    His move to “America's Got Talent” in 2012 was part of a Stern blueprint to build on his core audience and become part of the mainstream. Three seasons in with Stern, the series is a solid summer hit for NBC,:giggle: unusual for a show in its 10th season. Last week, it was the top-rated non-sports show on network TV.


    As he always does, Stern is making noise about leaving Sirius when his contract is up at year's end. He moans about being stressed out by the demands of “AGT.”

    Keenly aware that he's successfully repositioned himself, Stern can truly design a wide-reaching next act. He could decide on a move a la Jerry Seinfeld's successful Crackle series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” or go with an interview show on Netflix or Amazon Prime -- all places that need him:rolleyes:, and where he could have complete artistic freedom. Likewise a series with a premium network such as HBO or Showtime would hold the same creative freedom.


    Love this comment*******

    Dear J. Max Robins,

    I am excited by the prospects for this colum under your direction.

    In the spirit of candor, which I can already see marks your editorial contributions,
    I must tell you and the readers of this inaugural edition that I find Howard Stern
    obnoxious, repugnant and detestable.:eek: I think that those who listen to him and watch his so-called performances are soiledo_O as one would be in rubbung up against a muddy car wearing a white jacket in the middle of a dark winter. In sum, he is a Hellion and life would be better if ... . ("Who am I to judge?" PF)

    Now that I have cleansed and purged ...

    The balls Buchwald has after In Demand told Gunk to beat it and his AIDS like effect on AGT's ratings is astounding.

    LOL! Is this Stern truth. The funny thing is that about 50% of the Sirius subscribers can't even get Howard 100 and Howard 101. So according to this, every Sirius subscriber who can get Howard listens to Howard and 1.5 subscribers who cannot get his channels listen anyway.

    It is clear that the person who wrote this is a Stern fan because this bullshit was only ever pushed by Howard.

    #1 soundtrack - 1 week, Movie - 1 week, books - I think 4 weeks tops. And thanks to people outside of the New York area on this board, it has been WELL established that he didn't have the number 1 show outside of NY. Unsure of cable ratings but that got cancelled too. Keep believing the shit he feeds you.

    "My bet is that the King of All Media will go with a “have-my- cake-and-eat-it-too” strategy."

    More like "have my 14 almonds and eat half of it" strategy.
