    Howard has hundreds of millions of dollars already. I can deal with the commercial breaks, but the live reads are out of control especially when he interrupts the news constantly. Let's say he does seven live reads a day and makes $1,000 per live read. 120 shows over the course of the year. That's $7,000 per day, $840,000 over the course of the year. After taxes, management fees, etc, he probably takes home $400,000 per year on top of his $80 million dollar salary just for doing live reads. That's about a half of a percent increase over his regular salary. So I guess the price to completely sell out and drive his show to ruin is pretty cheap (comparatively speaking). Certainly it's money he could live without if he were concerned about the quality of his show. :dontknow:

    But he is not, and Howard can never have enough marbles.

    just another way to maximize marbles and piss on the fans, I guess.... besides the fact that all the products advertised are shady.

    I was thinking the same thing today, you just know he's crowbarring them in just for the money, the greedy bastard. He could just do a show without all the interruptions and go home, but no, Howie needs more. I wouldn't believe that he just does them for Sirius sake, not with the enthusiasm he puts into them.

    You're probably off with the $1000 per though, more likely about $7000 each.

    So live reads are OK but then he complains constantly about his staff (who are barely paid by the way) attempts to earn a few miserily bucks? really?

    What if the live reads are $10,000 each and he takes home an extra $4 million per year? Man's gotta pay his Mexican cleaning army.

    Don't mean to defend Howard. Lord knows he's done plenty of pissing on the fans. But I don't think that's how it works with advertising. I think that money goes to Sirius.
    I could be wrong, but that's how it works on every other radio show

    Sirius makes him do it. Probably a trade-off for getting to work 90 days a year.

    The better question is why does he interrupt the commercials with his shitty show?

    I always thought it was because if he didn't do it during the show he would have to stay later to do them...oh the horror. We all know how he can't fucking wait to end the show and get out of there.
