Some dude called in this week and asked Howard about his contract. Howard responded that he "[had a lot of options and he was exploring them]". I mean where could howard go other then podcast at this point? WTF does he think we are dumb? He isn't going back to cbs or any traditional radio because they wouldn't put up with his shittty work ethic for three days a week at that money, no way. TV, no way he's past his demographic on air. Podcast he COULD do but who's gonna pay for his content at this point with all the other options of close free content already out there? Plus howard bagged on podcast guys the last 5 years and for him to do it would be the last shovel of dirt on his coffin of credibility. For Marci Turk to claim or imply she thinks they could have 1 million listeners pay is utter baloney, no way. Perhaps for a few months but then it's over fast If I'm Sirius I low ball him badly in his new contract and say sianaro if you don't want it. I'd love to see where you could make close to this. Howard knows it too. His "option" at this point his is his only asking himself if he has any ego and work ethic left and we will see if he still has either, my guess is no. To imply people still get Sirius at this point for his shitty product or for a howard stern and his departure would impact their bottom line is the epitomy of insanity by his camp.
