    Just in the nick of time. After they've given 2 billion dollars to him, they might use this info to deny him a fourth contract.

    "Yeah, Robin, so Sirius now has this new radio that can tell you how many people are listening, but it doesn't tell you the 7 people that are around the one radio. So the numbers aren't right. Plus it only works on that model radio and Sirius didn't market it well enough, so it's not giving anywhere near the real numbers for our channels, Robin. Robin??????"

    I just got in the mail an offer for 5 months for $25. For the last year at least, it's been 5 for $20. What have they added that could possibly justify another $5? Even when they give me two weeks free, I never bother to turn it on. Takes an hour to load the few random shitty channels they do have. Company is a total shitstain.

    Yeah but don't forget that Howard has at least 10 people huddled around each radio that has one of his channels on.

    We don't need that feature to know Howard's fan base is gone. No one on a nationally broadcast network that has 30 million subscribers gets away with calling Asians "Gooks" on a regular basis (during his phony unfunny Vietnam stories) unless his audience is incredibly small.

    Howard got mentioned in the article:

    "How many people really listen to Howard Stern every day? The 20 million figure Stern has counted as listeners in the past, or the much smaller 3 million that one survey estimated his audience at? It's almost surely somewhere in between, but where? We may soon know."

    Wouldn't be surprised if the 3 million is way above the actual listener count.

    I'd be surprised if he had a million listeners at any given time. I don't think he got many XM listeners after the merger.

    Howard Stern had to buy one million Twitter followers because he has no fans. Stern has been stuck at 1.6 million for four years. I have not seen any real celebrity not increase followers every year. Piers Morgan is way ahead of wiggosaurus in twitter numbers.

    The birthday show never sold out and they had to go outside a beg people to come in with promises of free food.

    YouTube videos get under 20k views after a year.

    This technology will destroy wiggy because nobody is listening. Live shows have under 10,000 listeners. Estimated by looking at his social media. Look at his retweets.

    2017 could be a very embarrassing year for Wiggy

    I was wondering about this, how many people can possibly be paying for Sirius ONLY to hear Howard in 2016? Like people who would absolutely get rid of their subscription without Howard.

    I say it's under 1 million. There's only like 300 million people in America. There's no way more than 1 in 300 pay actual money to listen to Howard. It's probably more like 250,000 hardcore fans left.


    The break even number of Howard ONLY subscribers would be around 350,000 people paying 20 bucks a month just to have Howard. It has to be higher for Sirius to make any money off it (based on this 85 million dollar yearly salary according to Forbes). I bet Sirius knows the hardcore fan number is around 250-500k. The financial reports claim 30 million total subscribers but I'm sure that is a juiced number. That probably counts free trials in new cars so their claim of several hundred thousand new people each quarter is probably fake.


    Either his 85,000,000 salary is a really dumb deal for Sirius or someone is lying about the numbers.

    You mean his twitter followers didn't explode when he became America's Judge?

    I know many people who have Sirius because it came with their cars. Not one of them subscribed for Howie. Those I know who have XM didn't shell out more to get his channel either. I'd say 75% of the people wanted sat radio just for the music, and the others got it for sports and music.

    He's a fraud. He lied to the fans. His whole Sirius empire was built on fans who took him at his word. We're not stupid- when it became obvious it was a sham, we dumped his ass. And he can spin numbers all he wants, in 2016 NO ONE other than sycophants and hangers-on care about anything Howard Stern does.
