    O&A have been at a quandry with SIRIUS/XM recently. They haven't gotten their studio revamped yet, East Side Dave was fired, no visual element has been acquired, their equipment breaks...

    Do you think Howard is really laying the hammer down and is ensuring the company isn't meeting their demands from his "clones"?

    The wig could care less about his radio show. Why would he worry about other shows?

    no
    a few people make all the money
    the rest are minimum wage filler
    another O&A replay is better than live Dave in their eyes.

    I doubt it's Howard. Sirius is a backward company with their head up their ass.

    He only interfears when they play his audio or when they have Pat Cooper on. All the budget money goes to the Wig regardless.

    Tim is just a human shield working for a new-marble-miser-master.
    How are things at the Revolution without Tim?

    I would say so, yeah. We all know that Stern is a pussy-boy who had a gag order put on Opie and Anthony and he's admitted to liking
    to "clandestinely fuck" with people. I thought Sabean="clandestine fucking" on Stern's part.

    Between promoting Beffs career, purging and kissing every celebrity ass in sight I don't see where he'd find the time to fuck with O&A.

    Sirius has been hacking away at their budget across the board. They have fired a lot of DJs on other channels and replacing them with low cost nobodies. Liberty Media is all about trying to make the company profitable (probably to resell to someone else) and are trimming away a lot of the fat of previous regimes.

    I think they are in a pickle with Howard though. They have two and half more years of a way too costly and unprofitable contract that favors the talent too much with a guy with a falling ratings and seems to be more interested in his other job than the one they are paying him for. Howard won't quit and they won't pay him to stay home. So they are forced to do what they can to make Howard put in the effort to stop the slide. That means redoing his studio and offices and giving him spotlight events to try to make his show relevant again. That is the only reason why they give Howard what they want and fuck O & A and others. They are probably losing tens of millions of dollars a year with Howard and they are doing their best to minimize that loss.

    But Howard is probably feeling the crunch. Just not in ways he really cares about. Howard 101 has turned into a shit sandwich and that is probably because Sirius won't pay Howard's staff to do their own shows. They certainly won't pay to get name talent to do the show.
