    First, back office radio gets the axe...

    ... Then, playboy radio disappears.

    Watch out, Howard... John Malone is a clandestine mother fucker and actually has power.

    Do you realize John Malone has nothing to do with this? The guy is a billionaire who owns many companies. He's not spending any time micromanaging all the horse shit that goes on. The guy has absolutely no idea about Sirius programming.

    No..
    But when Mr Wig is trying to negotiate a new multi hundred dollar contract, MrMalone will stop it.

    Malone is competent and have put competent staff in charge of programming. (and who fuck with Howard: 3K door)

    This may be true, but I believe Malone's real goal is the Satellites. As of now both Sirius and XM have their own separate Satellites basically doing the same job.
    Two companies wasting resources, Malone doesn't like waste and could use those satellites for his Dish Network.
    I think Sirius is closing shop soon leaving just XM and Wiggy is scared the buy out option means no more Show.

    ...i agree he wants the hardware for video transmission. only thing i would say is john malone has like 3 different degrees like phd. hes not playing golf not knowing whats going on at sirius. if stern earns money he can stay if, like you say they keep a portion of the radio subscription business.

    I'm loving that Wig's old buddy Mel is gone and The Pelican has to deal with a non-MOT.

    It was "Mel made me pay it" and will go to "that anti-Semetic (something Yiddish) is making me pay for it."

    This morning H mentioned something about cancelling 100 and 101. Barely listening but wondered about that.

    Yeah, they said that before. He's interested in that and doesn't really have any interest for the radio service. Can he just end SiriusXM if he wishes?

    ...he can change the programing. isnt that what they did when rock stations went to talk or automation which btw is pretty much what the stern show has become.

    Howard said he's rather do a show on "Stars" channel and cancel H100 & H101. Just do a show in between other programs and go home...Hey asshole, it's what you do now adn have been doing for 7 years.

    Howard did not like that one twelve, Inc. was billed by Sirius-XM for door repairs.....ha ha ha ha

    Marks Friggin

    Howard said that was all coming about when Mel was after him. He said this new guy, Jim, might not be like that. Howard said hopefully it'll be like that. He said he needs budget for the shows they put on there. Howard said it's one big headache. He said he may eliminate the channels and just do his show. Howard said that's the conclusion he's coming to. He said he could just do his radio show and that's it. Howard said he doesn't want to be cock blocked every step of the way. He said he didn't get into it for that. Howard said he just wants to entertain his audience. He said he's just going to go do his own show and forget about the management thing.


    Howard said last night he was hearing about how they need a door fixed and they needed to budget 3 grand to fix it. Howard said it's a union thing and he didn't know he'd have to do repairs around there. Howard started moaning and asked what has it all come to.
