    Very insightful never thought of that

    would kill to know what robin was thinking when he said no one knows her name none the less other people's. she was very quiet after he said that.

    Howard didn't seem to grasp that Back Office Radio was for the fans of his show, it wasn't like it's being broadcasted on NBC to a mainstream audience, therefore the "nobody knows who Robin is" example was retarded, and also put her down in a way (afterall she's trying to sell a book soon to a mainstream audience and thinks of herself as a known "name"). He's just grasping at sh*t because he wants to cancel it for whatever reason. He said he doesn't listen to it, yet somehow knew someone called him Douchebag Of The Week on there. Fans do care, you even read it in the email you are receiving, shithead.

    But I loved this argument as it cast light into the situation that his underlings are under, trying to fill time and justify their jobs since Howard went to 2-3 days a week. You can't have your cake and eat it, too, "bro".

    Cheap Time Fillers instead of hiring real talent for his channels . . .

    The whole news team is just a cheap way to create content for the show. Like "Ronnie have a pace car".

    The bigger question is this: Less then a year after the news team was created almost 50% of them where fired. What happened there? Sirius provide Howard with a show budget, what made Howard to cut money from the news team and who got the money in the show. (and it was not Howard)

    Makes perfect sense. BOR is about everyone on staff. H100/H101 news was supposed to report stories glorifying wigward only. that is until lisa glassberg did a story about beffs jewelry...

    when howard was complaining about them talking about david hight on back office radio, he said the staff should realize that outside of the die hard fans of the show nobody knows who they are..he said something like (paraphrasing) "you guys all think everyone knows how you are but it simply isnt true, most people dont even know who robin is, they think her name is robin givens"

    boff wants all his workers to be the majority content of his lame show for free, but doesnt want any of them to become known or famous. he hates block party because of that
