    Liberty says they will spin off Sirius into a public company. Maybe Mel will buy it back for less? I don't think Siri can survive as a public company with no assets and no bankroll.

    I would love if Liberty spun of Sirius as a new company, invalidating Howard's contract. Bye bye Wiggy.

    Now we know why Howard have put some effort into the show the last 3-4 weeks. He knows that he have to step up the game otherwise he have nowhere to go.

    Malone can shelf stern for 3 years if he so chooses. I have no clue why Howard keeps up the passive aggressive attacks on him. Oh when what's his name takes over. I hope What's his name can get this place. Malone can pull stern from H100 101 and pay out his contract. Howard can not go onto any radio or satellite services under his non compete clause.

    This will also lead to Howard being sued successfully by indemand for breech of contract as well. No studio and radio show means no indemand content. Malone could fuck Howard over and over again. He best start sucking up to his new boss.

    Stern will not quit. Malone may retire him though. Crush him if Howard really pisses him off as well. Howard has fucked with corporations not a single entity such as Malone. It's hard to piss off a corporation to the point of being black balled, it's easy to piss off one person that owns everything though.

    Ego Vs Ego battle looms. Might make great radio until it's taken away from him.

    Stern is all done.
    Malone will stop the bleeding at H100 & H101
    Look for nothing more than tapes for the balance of Howard's contract.

    Stern himself said it again, first thing this morning, he wants "to be outta here."

    The In-Demand contract is contingent upon actually having a show to film.

    Stern is so desparate for the spotlight that he went on AGT.

    Therefore I doubt he will be leaving Sirius

    Howard had little or no chance of getting his "bonus" with Mel at the helm, but he now has 0.0% chance (minus infinity) of getting his bonus once Malone takes the reins.
