Howard's mentioned a couple of times that he can leave at the end of this year if he wants. It would make sense that SiriusXM also has a buyout option at the end of the year as well. When Howard signed the contract Mel and Greenstein ran the show and his Hampton's cronies like Leon Black were on the board so he figured there's no way they'd option him out. With the new regime in place anything's possible. It could be the reason he's all of a sudden tweaking his show and working on the 101 content.
