    I'll start with Cougar Life (even though they may not be advertisers anymore).

    http://www.sitejabber.com/reviews/www.cougarlife.com

    "Dog Sh#@%@! Complete scam"
    "MADE FALSE CHARGES ON MY CREDIT CARD, STAY AWAY FROM THIS SCAM SITE"
    "What can I say about this site? Let's see it's complete garbage"
    "DO NOT WASTE $56 PER MONTH ON THIS WEBSITE"
    "This website is $#*!"

    BBB rated F!!!
    Note that cougarlife and Ashley Madison are both under this entity

    How about someone w more intarwebz smarts than me finding out who invests in the companies that start as a "hey I'm trying out this new (insert shitty product here) and mama Lucien it's great..." end up as paying advertisers w a much larger presence.

    Dish Network is one of the most infamous companies for poor customer service.

    Of over 3000 reviews they get ONE star.

    To be fair, there are some good companies advertising (based on BBB and other reviews) but due to the ad overload, I would have completely discounted them simply because they were on the show.

    Some of the good ones:

    Fitbrain.com
    Canvasworld.com
    Americanhomeshield.com
    Freeprintsnow.com
    Simplisafe.com

    the only advertisers Howard stern can get are scams. no legit advertisers want nothing to do with the Howard stern show. and this is because he does not have an many listeners like he used to.

    One of the worst Stern advertisers was Penny Stock Chaser, which got busted by the SEC.

    "According to the SEC's complaint, McKeown and Ryan received millions of shares of touted companies through their two corporations, defendants Downshire Capital Inc., and Meadow Vista Financial Corp., as compensation for their touting. McKeown and Ryan sold the shares on the open market while PennyStockChaser simultaneously predicted massive price increases for the issuers, a practice known as "scalping.""

    Mlaw, seriously, shut your dumb cunt up. You completely miss the point of this thread.

    No one said Howie has NO legit sponsors. It is to expose the scam sponsors.

    Dumb twat.
