what a fuckhead...he should just be happy with the 100's of millions he's already blackmailed from sirius and let things stand.
he makes me sick.
At least we can look forward to the moment he loses this as well.
........The legal soap opera began in late 2004 when the self-proclaimed â€œKing of All Mediaâ€ announced heâ€™d be leaving terrestrial radio to join Sirius in January 2006 for a reported $500 million over five years, plus potential stock bonuses.......
-Howard never revealed he had subscription stock bonuses when he was selling his revolution!!
-Howard claimed early on the the Revolution was commercial free yet in his contract he was to share marbles generated from commercials!
Howard Allan Stern pulled off the largest fraud in the history of entertainment!!!
Fuck partner stern!
To what degree Stern takes his case to the court of public opinion is anyoneâ€™s guess, but he has occasionally used airtime to rail against Sirius XM president Scott Greenstein , whom he accuses of having a â€œfâ€”ing short memoryâ€ with regards to where SiriusXM was prior to Sternâ€™s arrival.
Wiggy almost never mentions Greenstein name!
I wonder where this journalist got this story from?
Every man should have a hobby. Howards is marbles.
I had no idea. Just when I thought it wasn't possible to have been duped to any greater degree...I wish I could retweet this 1,000 times.
I remember when The Revolution first started, and Howard kept patting himself on the back for broadcasting "so long" without breaks, but between the phony phone calls and the Robin songs, it felt like he was still getting 15 to 20 minutes off as often as on terrestrial....
What was Howard's mantra again about integrity and not ripping off his fans?
I hope he gets another female judge.
I hope he'll enlist Gary to interpret the ruling for him again.
"Boff, it sounds positive. But then the ruling is negative."
"I have none" and "let's do it!"
It would be great to see another photo of Howard with LOSER! printed on it. They should make it a regular thing.
I just heard about this on O&A this morning. I thought it was a repeat, but here we are.
Right! I love Gary's pithy legal analysis.
He's a regular Justice Booey Day O'Connor!
"Howard Stern presses suit seeking $300M from his company, SiriusXM"
Howard Stern is ready to get Sirius. Again.
On Monday, the satellite radio shock jock filed a brief with the New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division to put in motion a highly anticipated appeal against his employer, SiriusXM Radio, for an estimated $300 million.
Though the filing, which challenges an April 2012 court dismissal in favor of SiriusXM, has not been processed yet, a clerk at the courtâ€™s offices at 27 Madison Ave. confirmed to us that the paperwork is â€œin the stackâ€ and will probably be made ready by the end of the week.
The legal soap opera began in late 2004 when the self-proclaimed â€œKing of All Mediaâ€ announced heâ€™d be leaving terrestrial radio to join Sirius in January 2006 for a reported $500 million over five years, plus potential stock bonuses.
When Stern made the announcement, Sirius had a paltry 673,000 subscribers. In December 2010, Stern re-upped for another five years for a reported $400 million. Only now, Sternâ€™s employer was SiriusXM, a name change precipitated by the 2008 merger between Sirius and its satellite competitor XM Radio Inc.
Two years later, the company reported its subscription base had swollen to more than 20 million listeners. Claiming they were owed stock bonuses due to the companyâ€™s success, Sternâ€™s 112 Inc. production company, along with agent Don Buchwald , filed a May 2011 lawsuit seeking the estimated $300 million.
In April 2012, New York State Supreme Court Justice Barbara Kapnick dismissed the case, calling the wording in Sternâ€™s original contract with Sirius â€œclearâ€ and â€œunambiguous.â€
The upcoming rematch should be interesting. No stranger to confrontation, Stern himself started moonlighting as a judge of sorts after joining NBCâ€™s â€œAmericaâ€™s Got Talentâ€ in December 2011. To what degree Stern takes his case to the court of public opinion is anyoneâ€™s guess, but he has occasionally used airtime to rail against Sirius XM president Scott Greenstein , whom he accuses of having a â€œfâ€”ing short memoryâ€ with regards to where SiriusXM was prior to Sternâ€™s arrival.
The 58-year-old star of radio, film, books and TV has a long history of using his bully pulpit to go after his bosses. In the mid-â€™80s while at NBC, the Queens native famously nicknamed his showâ€™s program director, Kevin Metheny, â€œPig Virusâ€ and made him the butt of many jokes. A composite character allegedly based on Metheny was immortalized by Paul Giamatti in Sternâ€™s 1997 hit film â€œPrivate Parts.â€
Neither reps for Stern nor Sirius XM returned our requests for comment before deadline.
Here we go again
Jesus. I wish someone or something would topple him off that self-made throne he sits on.
late in the day......late in the day..........
Shit he just filed the appeal? I thought he did this months ago. This is gonna take forever.
