    What the caller said: The new videos you guys have been putting out on Facebook and stuff like that ... Are you guys ramping up for something Howard TV-ish? It just seems a little different. Like, the production values just seem different.

    What Howard said: Yeah, I have some things in mind that we can do ... I'm playing with a bunch of ideas, I gotta figure out everything ... Our contracts are up here in January. Um, you know, I-I contract out for America's Got Talent for every year, I don't have a multi-year contract ... And ... I don't know, I have to do a lot of evaluating ... I'm sure Robin and Fred feel the same way ... Benjy, we don't care what he does ...

    What Howard would have said if he was truly the Most Honest Man in Radio: As reported by Variety and The New York Times in February of this year, I signed on with my friend Lloyd Braun's new production firm, Whalerock Industries. I'm one of Whalerock's first clients, along with the Kardashian clan and rapper Tyler, the Creator. (That's why I played clips of Tyler -- whom I'd never even heard of before -- saying the words ni99er and fa99ot at Coachella last week, then asked Robin if we've ever had him on before, then mused that he sounds like he'd be a great guest.) Whalerock will create a "media hub" for each of us, which includes a "personal Internet network." The first rollout will happen soon, within the first half of 2015, in the form of a Tyler the Creator app. This will include original and licensed content, and the app will let the rapper interact directly with his biggest fans. The hubs will include a mix of paid and ad-supported content. The plan is to bring Tyler on ostensibly to talk about Coachella, the rapper's antics and his music (which I've never heard but would definitely hate), then expertly segue into promoting his new app, and clandestinely begin promoting my next business venture ...

    "synergistic" "media hubs."

    Pay no attention to what is actually said. The truth is something else...

    Howard Stern has no listeners. He pissed them all away.

    Sirius does not want to re-sign the wigged liar and I cannot wait to see what a huge failure he will be on Whalerock.

    He must've forgotten that 2 year option he signed up front when he first joined Gong Show 2.0. Who knows what he has signed since.

    "I signed -- I don't know what I signed!"

    One of the best examples ever of Howard thinking on his feet, after Howie pointed out that Howard had signed a two-year contract -- which meant that his five months of "deciding" whether or not he was going to return was all an act.

    So, Gunky plans to do a show on the Whale Rock app after he is jettisoned from Sirius? Wouldn't that be, in a round about way, a fucking podcast that one has to pay for?

    "But don't worry, Robin, my fans who follow me over there will get tons of great programing in addition to my 2 day work week from those super talents, The Kardashian's and the next Jay-Z, Tyler the Creator. Not only that but I might actually work the occasional Wednesday!"
