    Does anyone know if that's even remotely true?

    He never got to #1 in Minneapolis either. KQRS Morning radio show beat his ass and he disappeared a year or two later.

    In Miami he was routinely beaten by El Vacilon' on Spanish Radio as well as the morning show on Power 96. I listened religiously then and was a huge fan, but he wasn't #1.

    Exactly. Howie was destroyed by the idiot Tom Bernard, who's still on the air today.

    Remember Jackie's line: "...We're number one for our purposes", meaning they only acknowledge a small demographic where they can claim they're #1.

    Not even close in San Diego, beaten every ratings book by a news station (that carried the rush Limbaugh show), The Jeff and Jer Showgram (possibly the worst radio show ever but #1 every year Howard was in the market), the KGB Morning Zoo and a Latino station. Some quarters he was barely in the top 10.

    Howard never made it to #1 in Chicago and for the most part never broke the top 10. Part of that is because of poor promotion and he had to start on an AM station that no one listened to. I still think if Howard would have come to Chicago to do an appearance with all of the crew he could have been a lot more successful here. But that and the 45 minutes of commercials every hour killed it.

    Exactly...and he did not last long in Denver either...was getting killed in the ratings even before the stupid Columbine comments.

    My suggestion would be for Dan from Chicago to call and go double or nothing from the last bet on howchie's claim of being number one in every market he was in.

    "On Friday, FMQB reported that Howard Stern topped the Winter 2004 Arbitron morning show ratings in his hometown New York market. In the wake of his public verbal assaults on the FCC, Clear Channel, and George W. Bush over the past few months, Stern has also seen a dramatic increase in his numbers in Boston, Los Angeles and Chicago.

    In Boston, where WBCN was the first affiliate to 'Stand Up For Stern,' Howard vaulted from a sixth place 4.6 12+ in the Fall to a second-place 8.2 in the Winter.

    In L.A., Stern advanced from sixth to fourth 12+ (3.7-4.2) on KLSX during the Winter survey, which covers January 8-March 31. Stern's rants began in earnest on February 26 -- the day Clear Channel suspended him in six markets -- so March is where you'd expect to see the biggest spikes. That's the case in L.A., where Stern had the number-one morning show in the extrapolated March monthly -- 5.4 12+ and 7.0 adults 25-54. He also tied KROQ's Kevin and Bean for first in 18-34 (in March) with a 9.6.

    In Chicago, Stern leapt from 15th place in the Fall to ninth in the Winter. In the 25-54 demo, he went from sixth to third. "

    i live in the columbus oh area, and i have sincere doubts that he was #1 here ever...we have one of those nutty local morning zoo shows on WNCI that was awful but they were an absolute powerhouse in the ratings
