    I would unplug him immediately if I were Sirius. I seem to remember Trump saying the same thing when he left KROC. Why let him promote where he is going?

    The fact that he is saying nothing makes me think he is staying put.

    If this man knows nothing else, it is self promotion.

    Of course he is coming back!

    Think about it, were he leaving, his ego would demand a sendoff. Does going quietly into the sunset sound like his style?

    He would want the ass-kissing tributes to begin. Like a 4 hour Jon Heinfest.

    The only reason he is mum is because he hopes it will attract attention.

    Who cares anyhow? I rarely listen these days...

    He dragged out every AGT announcement until the 11th hour until he was done with AGT - then it was an immediate "I won't be back on AGT". He's predictable.

    You think he'd be silent if he hadn't already inked a deal and was desperate for an audience?

    Two words: pay cut.

    Also, do you think that they would let Howard go without a party or some shit?

    He'd be bitching up a storm if he were leaving. Makes zero sense as to why Sirius keeps paying him. Unlistenable.

    I don't get it either. I think he is going to turn it into the Oprah channel format. One hour of Stern, 23 hours of "best of".

    If he made the announcement, who the hell would hear it? Shit the news would move at the speed of the pony express unless he pays Maryanne Garvey to report on it. Nobody listens and nobody cares!

    If a jerk cries on the air, and no one is there to hear it does it still get ratings?

    The show has jumped the shark and I don't listen to his interviews but I would miss it if he wasn't on in the morning. It's been a part of my morning drive and office life for soo long. I suspect others would also but won't admit it

    I agree. If there was even a chance he wasn't staying with Sirius he would be talking endlessly about all the other offers he has to continue doing radio.

    I kind of agree, but isn't there a certain sense of "how bad can it get" curiousity involved? I mean, there's no hope it can improve. It's really a race to the bottom at this point.

    He's only got 4 shows left. And I'm sure Sirius was very specific about that sort of thing in the contract.
