    The one and only reason we never hear shit talk from the dozens of now former Stern Show employees is
    that they all sign a Non-Disclosure contract when first hired to work on the Stern show.

    For the few of you that do not know... a ND is standard in the entertainment industry
    with the contracts themselves
    being tailored to the specific show/movie/book... etc

    In Stern's case (and I am speculating) employees are forbidden from talking about any and all of Stern's private life to any media outlet print or electronic...

    This almost certainly include Stern's hair, hiring/firing practices or any 'secrets' used to run the Stern show

    Now for as much as a fired employee would want to shit talk about wigs and such
    they would face the wrath of on retainer lawyers who would be all to happy to file
    for damages stated in the contract most likely in the millions...
    (typical ND's use numbers in the millions to discourage all but the super rich or super stupid from talking)

    For as fun as it would be to spill the beans on Stern.. having Stern liquidate all of your assets after suing you
    to the tune of millions would not be pleasant ...

    This is why you hear even Artie say that they wish they could talk but know they can't

    Below is a ND (not Stern's) that gives you an idea how air tight these things can be
    read the middle 2nd from the bottom paragraph ..

    These ND's have been tweaked over the years to the point that anyone breaking one would be fucked

    Yep
    But it goes both ways. Howard can't talk bad about them. Thats why Artie only address what Howard said. Thats the legal way to do it.

    I would guess his marriage "proposal" looks very similar.

    most paper work and states that on air talent give up most of their rights to sue for being mocked
    or made fun off and that the company can not be held responsible..

    I believe it, Artie was not joking whatsoever when he told Stuttering John not to write shit about Howard in his book that could get him sued. He compared it to David without a slingshot vs Goliath.

    I have a hard time believing Robin and Fred have a NDA. Howard can easily piss one of them off and maybe they'll spill.

    they are all employees and it is standard for everyone to fill one out..

    and in the past the same could have been said about Jackie, Artie and SJ.. and they all clearly have signed one

    But that can't be forever. Isn't there a time limit?

    I think celebrity pre-nups have the same language. That's why you never saw Tiger Wood's ex wife in the media.
