    Over & over I’m asked about Marci Turk but I know nothing about her that wasn’t said on air. People want me to comment on the articles / podcasts. I’m not being a good soldier. I simply don’t know about those things. I wasn’t at that level. We never met & I never talked to anyone about her.

    Here are the facts as I know them. Howard had a big GTD meeting w/ the staff Feb 2013. She was hired March 2013. (might have been Feb) She took over Tracy’s office & Tracy moved in w/ Gary. BOR was cancelled the same month along w/ all the other staff side shows & Ronnie’s Block Party. I lost Kaplan as my producer at the same time. 3 months later in June SFRT was cut back from weekly to monthly. In Sept Tim was over on the O&A channel & Jeremy had taken his place. We lasted 5 more shows. The Jan 30th 2014 BDay Bash Show was the last SFRT. In Feb Tracy was let go. I wasn’t officially told SFRT was on hiatus until April. That same month Ralph announced Geektime was on hiatus as well.

    As for who decided what & why, sorry but your guess is as good as mine. My assumption is the Stern Show is a multimillion dollar company & Howard realized he should start treating the running of it accordingly.

    The interesting thing about the Stern Show is that it has been in "subtraction mode" for a couple of years, and nothing seems to be added to replace the losses.

    Tracey wasn't "let go." Wait, actually she WAS "let go."
    She wanted to leave a lot earlier but they needed her help for that stupid birthday bash, so she agreed to stay until then.

    Yes.

    This is a pretty good sign that Howard does not plan on being on satellite after December 31. Businesses that plan on continuing generally don't contract like this. They expand.

    Truth is Marci was hired, then the fun stopped. Everyone is on pins and needles behind the scenes and it shows. Shes starting to fire long time listeners as well with this nonsense.

    Yes, it's very much like retail stores that start having financial issues and close locations to try to save money. I've pretty much never seen that happen and a few years later they say "Hey, that worked, so we're getting bigger and doing better", it's always "We did everything we can, now we have to close."

    It was also very odd to hear all the talk yesterday about John Hayes, as that's all pretty much what's happening now, he's becoming more and more like Morning Zoos and daytime talk shows. Every day the show we used to love is losing more of its identity.

    Grabbin' all the marboles before he's out the door. I wonder what the basis of the next lawsuit he files against SiriusXM will be? Does anyone doubt there will be one if he is out Dec.31?

    I didn't need no steenkeen Marci Turk to drive me away from listening.
    Howard took care of that all on his own.

    His name is Jeremy Coleman. Not sure how to post a LinkedIn profile from my phone but he is listed as being Svp Howard stern channels in augustbof 2013. Before that he was vp of talk programming at Sirius from July 2003 until taking over at the stern channels. I can't remember the source but about a year ago I read he was really the driving force behind all the changes and that the Turk was just a figure head. That was before the page six article about Turk and Gtd so I don't know how accurate what I read is

    This is interesting because of what Tracy said when she left. I followed her on Twitter and at the time she was adamant she left on her own and it was her decision to leave. Now mutt says otherwise. I suspect mutt is telling the truth and Tracy received a decent severance package along with an airtight nda.

    About a million years ago (90s) I lived in DC. There was a Jeremy Coleman that was, as I recall, a lackey/intern on the Don & Mike Show (Don Geronimo, Mike O'Meara). I think they were on WAVA at the time, but then moved maybe to WJFK?... Again this was years and years ago. The Greaseman was in play. Oh, and it may have been around the time Howard was in DC?

    Anyhow... I'm guessing this is the same Jeremy Coleman? I mean, how many can there be in radio with that name?

    Oh, and to add, he was treated as a complete idiot on the show. The fall guy, always the brunt of stupid bits... I can't remember specifically, but I do recall Don Geronimo (Mike Sorce) constantly ragging on him.
