    I have now for 7 years read thousend of times that Howard is payed 500 million and the he pays Show cost. This is the reason why Artie isn't replaced, since Howard pockets the money. That is why JD and all other employes makes little money since Howard don't want to pay him.


    From Sirius contract. Howard is not payed. Its One Twelve inc that gets the money.
    Signing bonus: About 50 million
    Annual cash compensation: 100 million / year. This is confirmed by Sirius.
    Bonus stock compensations: Howard got X amount of dollars in options or shares. If Howard generates subscribers "Howard Stern generated subscriber" he will get another bonus. Howard never generated subscribers, so he did not get this bonus.
    Performance based compensation: Every 2 million subscribers from 2-10 generates in a bonus. About 35 million in each
    Advertising revenue: Howard gets a % of the revenue. More subscribers, higher %. Today the rumour is that he rakes in 75% of the advertising money.
    Premium channel revenue: This was Howard's planned third channel. Since he did not launch it, he got zero.
    Consulting fee: Howard never pays Buchwald. He gets the other part to pay the 15%. At least 15 million/year that Sirius pays Fuckwald.
    Production expenses:SIRIUS pays the production expenses, not Howard. I am so fucking tired of people who believe Howard pays for this.
    Studio 69: Sirius pays for the studio. They built the studio. Costs due to HowardTV, is Howard TV expenses. Howard have exclusive rights to the studio (retarded Sirius never thought about that the studio is empty over 2/3 of the year. )
    Channel shows: All shows have to be approved by Howard Stern on 100/101. Not Tim, not anybody else but Howard.
    Channel expenses: Sirius will fund the expenses and Howard will get his 75% cut of ad revenue.
    Licensing the show: Howard does not work for Sirius. He license his show exclusive to them. All material is his and after the contract Sirius have no right to them.
    TV rights: Howard own the TV rights but Howard are not allowed to simulcast.
    Limo service: Sirius have to provide 24/7 limo service in New York area.
    XM Merger: Bonus: 25 million to Howard and 3 million to Buchwald

    During the first 5 years Howard made about: 50 million signing bonus, 500 million from Sirius, 300 million subscriber bonus + % of advertising. Howard raked in about 900 million for the first 5 years.

    I hope this also stop the idiocy that Howard pays a dime for the show. Sirius pays a show budget for the Show and hires Radio Stars with Sirius contracts (the fab 4)

    The contract is also 100% clear about Howard's subscriber bonuses. Howard gets a bonus for Stern subscribers (zero) and for hitting certain goals. Sirius goals. Howard lost his case since he wanted to have bonuses for SiriusXM. That is not Sirius. XM. Had Sirius bought XM, then Howard would have got 300 million more.

    https://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/fb...cumentId=tirVQewp3WvuM0EiILEVcA==&system=prod

    His latest contract:
    80 million/year
    + bigger cut in advertising. (The rumour is 100%)
    + bonus for Sirius app + numbers listening to Howard's internet stream.

    So..
    Fuck Howard...
    Cant even pay his own limo service with 900 million in salary.

    I guess around 20$mil/yr. He whored himself out to AGT for nearly the same amt/yr. This is good business to him.

    Howard didn't make nearly as much as you state. It is my understanding that all the budget from Howard 100 and Howard 101 came out of that $100 per year payout. Also, Howard go a large chunk of his pay in stock at the price at the time of his contract which he sold off much of at a much lower value than it was worth at the time of his contract.

    I also doubt Howard is making anywhere close to $80 million a year under his new contract. Part of the reason why he works so little under the new contract is because they cut his salary. Also, the Stern Show staff are now employed by Sirius which means his annual payout was lowered significantly because his show expense lowered dramatically. I wouldn't be surprised if Howard is making under $20 million a year under his new contract.

    People buy into Don Buckwald's media spin too much. Buckwald leaks these outrageous numbers to make Howard look far more important than he really is and to pump up his business for getting him an outrageous contract. Howard didn't get nearly as much personally as the rumored numbers were leaked. He certainly isn't getting close to that now especially now that Sirius knows that his current audience is not that small and even with Howard the churn rate with subscribers are in the millions.

    I agree that there's no way Howard is making $80 million per year from the new deal. That amount was a guess by a reporter that has been repeated so many times that people have come to accept it as fact. Howard probably got some bonus opportunity when the Stern channels were made available on the Sirius app for the first time in 2011 - wiggy was out promoting it like nobody's business and had it plastered on the rarely-visited howardstern.com website - no way Howard does that unless some marbles are involved.

    Some examples:
    Howard have almost no salary. His apartment and Chmneyville is owned by One Twelve and rented to Howard cheap.
    Howard/Beth eats out every day. This is a tax deductible cost. Howard manages to get these meals as business expenses. All Howard's clothes are business expenses payed by Howard TV.

    Howard rake in 900 million, have a low rent, don't pay for food, have free limo service and clothes.

    Howard's private jet is always payed by Sirius or by Howard TV. The Jimmy party that Howard visits is "Sirius promotion" = why Sirius have to pay for private jet and first class accommodation.

    Howard plug things that he wants for free. (bypassing Sirius Ad revenue cut). Free Ipad's, cameras and stuff like that.

    Howard stock bonuses: Sirius contract is so retarded that they guarantee the dollar value of the stocks for 10 days after the stock bonus was payed out. Sirius REWARDED Howard for dumping hundred of millions of shares that drove down the stock price. (Howard was awarded 35 million/5 times during the first 5 years. Each time he sold everything off. Since huge sell off pressures the share price down: Sirius had to pay Howard IN CASH the difference between the lower stock price and Howard's guaranteed 35 million.

    Buchwald and others new about Howard's huge stock sellout and sold short before each time (allegedly).

    Howard used third party people to buy a bunch of Sirius before Howard announced his Sirius contract (allegedly). One of these people where Robin. Howard thanked her by giving her a Mercedes.

    There are loads of more fun stuff....

    The funniest/craziest stuff is Howard's testate. Howard don't have much money today. Its all in One Twelve inc. Why pay income tax, when you don't need the money? In Howard's testament he creates a fund that are managed by Buchwald. That fund will pay Howard's daughters a bit of money. Beth are not included in the fund.

    And remember. Some parts are "allegedly"
