Discussion in 'The Howard Stern Show' started by Sickboy, Jun 30, 2012.
Wiggie interviewed by esquire in 2006.
The Revolution was just starting and we were all excited that we were FINALLY going to get the uncensored Stern.
A strange thing happened between when he got his 500 million and the new wife needing a job once her "supermodel status" came to an end....well that's where we are now.
"I'm not going to censor my own news department; that would ruin the concept."
He did, and it did.
where's my boxcutter?
as soon as lisa g sought out the jeweler, the news dept. was on borrowed time...
I missed the Steve Langford post-mortem discussion. Any confirmed reason for his departure?
Given his dedication to his craft, I speculate that he wasn't willing to be reined in by Boff. Howard probably told him to stop digging around for Artie/Beth/Robin material, and Steve took his principles and left.
i forgot how deceitful howard was when he promised us his "revolution".
Howard really gave Jackie a marble lesson there. Jokeman spent years trying to nickel and dime people with his shoddy merchandise, Howard played the long con 'bait and switch' on his audience and reaped a huge payday.
he got a job that paid higher than minimum wage
major reps 4 using underworld slang
Never one to mince words.
First of all, the wig looks different... more of a jewfro
Wait! Wait! Let me show you the black book. This is where the ideas go. I can't tell you everything we're gonna do, but you know that show The View, right? I've got a show coming on called Crack Whore View. We take all of the topics they discuss on The View that day, then take four crack whores and let them discuss those same issues. We're gonna have The Lesbian Dating Game, with a real host. Real lesbians. Play the game and guess what? We don't leave you for the date. The date goes on right in the studio afterward. We hear it all. We've got Tissue Time with Heidi Cortez. Tissue Time is for every guy who can't get to sleep. Heidi is not only hot, but she's incredibly great at phone sex. Lucky guys are going to have phone sex with her. Heidi's gonna set us all up to go to sleep. Guys, get your tissues out. And we all beat off together. Imagine, all Howard fans beating off as one! A true family...
I've been subpar for ten years and I admit it. I can't do what I want to do. And I can't live with being subpar! I've got to be Howard Stern.
Know what? I will never disappoint my fans. This will be my greatest creation. And that's just my two channels. Even if I suck, you've still got that whole other universe â€” which is very comforting to me, by the way. But I won't suck. Not with Crack Whore View.
Subpar for 16 years now

Gotta laugh at that one. I don't believe he ever gave them complete autonomy, but it was pretty clear when they found out the cost of Beth's engagement ring that they have the freedom to report anything they want as long as Howard is ok with it.
How was he going to have "movies" on satellite radio? That would have been a great concept. The bottom line is work is hard, he is rich, so he does the bare minimum.
Each new show costs wiggy marbles so there will be none.
