    "............Karmazin has led a renaissance at Sirius XM, home of Howard Stern, boosted by the recent resurrection of car (and hence new radio) sales.



    Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer, also on the panel, teased Karmazin as to why Howard Stern’s show had ads.

    Karmazin explained it was a call of nature. “We have no ads on our music,†he said. “But Howard Stern needs to go to the bathroom at some point. We needed a mechanism for him to do so.â€

    He said there are a maximum of six minutes of ads for Stern’s restroom breaks. (Google, take note.)..............."

    Google is about as interested in dead-end, closed circuit, glorified podcast Sirius radio as they are in a turd swirling a bowl.

    According to Jeff the Mutt and Jason the Boar, Wiggy does live reads during the news because he loves us.

    Satellite has no future. It will be gone within ten years. Karmazin makes my skin crawl.
