    Did you guys catch that this morning?

    Howard talking about how he has 70% of the sirius listeners.....

    Does he really believe that his listeners will follow him to yet another medium?

    He's delusional !
    You have but one chance to make a big move and have people follow you, he used that up with his move to Sirius, then he shit all over his listeners by giving them a crappy show where he put little to no effort in, and then doing only 2-3 shows a week (and not consistently every week)

    He's obviously concerned about the Liberty takeover and I don't think the AGT thing has led to the rebirth he was expecting. With only 3 yrs left to his contract he's getting nervous.

    I know I won't be following him to any other medium (I don't watch AGT), the only reason I still listen is I bought a lifetime subscription 7 yrs ago which has more than paid for itself and now I'm discovering different shows (Like Jay Thomas)

    Pandora wont have him. They see how Howard has screwed sirius.

    They want no part of Howard and his sinking ship.

    Had Howard revived the AGT franchise in any form or fashion he would have had a bargaining chip. We know how that worked out. The suits at Pandora must be laughing.

    Howard ends up suing every one he has a relationship with. I fully expect his lawyers to trump up some BS malfeasance suit against the producers of AGT before the smoke clears.

    Between the fact that he's irrelevant (aside from how he's killed AGT ratings, just check out his ratings when he's appearing on Letterman and other shows), because he's also so litigious, he's toxic. No one will touch him unless they're desperate for ratings and Pandora will not be as they've positioned themselves very smartly to capture the automotive market. I suspect if he wants to stay in electronic media he's gonna have to bite the bullet financially, work a lot harder and maybe even self-fund his next project. There's a better chance of GM bringing back Pontiac than that happening!

    Pandora sent me an email begging me for money this week. I don't think they have Buchwald Marbles.

    But then again, that's kind of where Sirius was when they hired Howard in the first place. This will be quite the tenses.

    Pandora doesn't have the business model to pay the kind of money Howard wants.

    Even if every single THSS listener followed him: we are talking about 70000 listeners. To few marbles for Wiggy.

    I listen to Pandora for music - and for free. They don't have the marbles to hire Wiggy....hopefully they also have enough common sense to realize he's washed up.

    again, he's deluding himself....someone has to tell him to shut up, he's making a fool of himself.

    there is zero demand for howard, no one cares.
