    Now it's Ronnie's turn to be a little too honest for Wig.

    Bobo claims to be in better shape than Ronnie and suggests an on-air competition bit. Howard says he's like to see it, however Ronnie can't help but point out the new, evolved show format (i.e. nothing funny anymore).

    Ronnie says: "That's all right, we don't do that shit around here anymore."
    Howard: "NOoo, I'm ready to do it -- what do you mean we don't do that anymore."
    Ronnie: "We only do interviews here, we're not gonna do that."
    Then Wig tries to gloss over it as usual.

    Cued up, just press play

    Reminds me of that ESPN guy who got the ax for this slip up with Jeremy Lin a few years ago:

    Ronnie isn't exactly right about the 2015 HSS - in addition to kiss ass interviews, they still do hilarious bits featuring fake Bruce Jenner, Casey Kasem, Joan Rivers, etc.

    I only heard it as a means to dismiss Bobo's idears.

    Like "...we only do (anything far from/opposite of what you're requesting) anymore..."

    Didn't hear a dig at the wig

    It's ok, because soon Howard will be on ISDN and won't have to acknowledge Ronnie's existence. I think you can already expect his time to be given a chance to speak is now going to be very limited and monitored.

    Seems like everyone has had enough of working there. I think it's weird that there's so many behind the scenes people at the Stern show that cannot be named on air. That's not the show I used to love. Back in the day no one was untouchable. Now they have writers and management that are never mentioned. The only reason we know their names is because of the dawg shed twitter detectives.

    No way. You can tell by Howards reaction that it's a jab at the show. It's basically what we are all saying here. No more funny bits, just interviews.

    I heard that part too

    I agree that Ronnies statement may have been heard by howard that way but I still think it was a way to shut up bobo. Honking off howard was incidental.

    Once he goes
    once he goes ISDN I'm sure we will get more Beff and cat talk.
    That will only be broken up by talk about house wife shows , the bacholor and dancing with the stars . Every man's dream show , right ?

    I would love to be a fly on the wall when Fred and Gary get together and they actually talk about the show now. I am sure neither is happy about it. I am sure they both were proud of what the show was and hate it now. I know Howard has evolved it to give him a new image, but other than bloated paychecks, neither of those guys get anything out of this evolution.

    Ronnie? He's around. Robin, let me introduce you to Mitch. He's my driver and head of security. What's in the news, Robin?

    It'll start out with Beth happening to just wander in to bring him something and then they get into a conversation about their cats or some equally stupid shit, then quickly move on to her becoming a common fixture of the show. When she's not out of town, flying around the country drinking and whoring it up, that is. I mean walking on red carpets in honor of cute animals.

    ISDN / work from home means no need for a ride to work or security. Ronnie, he's around

    They went from being on top of the world to being the laughing stock of radio.
