    On the Madonna show a caller asked about his contract talks with Sirius. It just amazes me that Howard acts like the best is yet to come in terms of channel programming, new shows and new ideas. I mean if Sirius falls for this bullshit play again their stock should drop to zero. Twelve years into the revolution and we actually have less original programs and the show is literally mailed and phoned in the three days it is barley on a week

    Howard acting like he is holding back on ideas is just insulting at this point. The show is what it is and it isn't gonna get better, most likely it will get worse. If I'm Sirius I would just show a spreadsheet of what he makes versus the live minutes on air. Show what it was when it started to what it has become now each year he has worked less and put less effort into his show. That will shut Buckwald up quick

    If Howard left I guarentee you Sirius wouldn't lose more then 10 percent of the listeners he supposedly brought over. At this point howard isn't even on enough to have a captive audience daily so his listeners are list sing to other stuff

    Call his bluff Sirius and tell him to pound sand

    The show won't really hit its peak until howard is in his 70's.

    The best is definitely yet to come. Howard is being shown the door soon.

    The thing is, Howard might play this right. Sirius is dying, it will soon be a dead medium. Howig desperately want's to be relevant, and staying on a sinking ship is not a good idea. I think he'll bolt, Sirius will fade (it would with or without him) and he'll claim he KILLED Sirius by leaving, even if it takes a year or so to crash and burn. Howard looks out for Howard.

    It's all about the marbles for him. Not about the quality of his programing. Big contract and little content = more marbles for him.

    Anyone who still buys into his bullshit at this point deserves to be fleeced.

    Yes, but when Howard left terrestrial for Sirius 16 million of his fans DID NOT follow him. Add to that the end of the E! Show for pay wall HowardTV and he became "Howard Who?" and "He's still got a show?".

    Whether Sirius tanks because of Howard or not, no one outside 112 Productions, Sirius board room, and MFB's kitchen is going to give a shit. And, without Sirius, Howard has zero platform to get people to change their minds and give a shit.

    He would be in a different situation if he made his website a must see entertainment site.

    I completely agree. If he tried to remain the king of ALL media, he wouldn't be in this situation now. Instead he's the king of a dying or dead form of media, and he really needs a lifeboat to carry him to safety.

    Yeah and he didn't have to strive to stay the King of All Media. He just had to initiate some quality control and leave a few million dollars in the budget.

    He blew it.

    Is Sirius really dying? I don't follow that kinda stuff. I just listened to the 10-6-04 show in which Howard announced his deal with Sirius. He said that Sirius was not a real business yet, but he would be responsible for making it so. He also said that he would be responsible for running Clear Channel out of business.

    Here's how this contract ends: Sirius gets stern back at fire sale levels and howard acts like he didn't take a pay cut
