    Howard Stern said today on his Sirius XM Radio Inc. show that he is "pretty sure" that he will be leaving the satellite radio provider when his contract expires at the end of this year.

    Stern also said on the air that he is not considering leaving the radio business, which opens up Sirius XM to a competitive threat should he not re-sign and remain on satellite radio.

    This is was some of the strongest language we've heard in months from Stern regarding the pending contract renewal with Sirius XM. Previously there was heavy talk and publicity surrounding Howard possibly joining American Idol.

    In his on-air conversation today, Stern told listeners that he would announce to them where he would go next, hinting towards a possible mobile application and a low monthly fee.

    Still, it wasn't entirely a negative conversation.

    Howard also mentioned the possibility of launching a third channel, and of doing a similar show as he's doing now but with less hours.

    One point of contention appears to be the length of the contract as well. Stern told his listeners that Sirius XM is pushing for a five-year contract, where he would prefer a shorter term agreement.

    The official verdict on Howard Stern's contract with Sirius XM is expected to be made public prior to November, before the third quarter earnings call, according to management. In late 2008, Howard Stern answered a caller's question of whether he would re-sign with Sirius by saying that this was his "swan song" and that he was "done" with satellite radio... that is, unless he can "work on [Stern's] own terms."

    I personally think this is part of the negotiation process, with both positives and negatives being brought up in a very public fashion. But what do you think? Will Howard Stern re-sign with Sirius XM? Or will he let his contract expire and move on to a new frontier?

    'Dis heres willy - I done retired'

    Consider the amount of effort the king is willing to expend on a podcast project at this point, it's likely to be a real snorefest. He should just take a powder and vacate.

    I bet he's a whole lot more sure today than when this was originally posted 2 years ago... but even more so, I bet Sirius/Xm is a wholeeee lot more sure as well...

    All bullshit. Malone hates him and thinks he is a waste of money. Also he had over 3 years left.

    Let's spin it into a new thread.

    I say he should've left in 2000. Sure no Artie, but our memories would be beer can cock solid.
