    Nearly a decade ago, Howard and the gang had built a radio show that was beyond compare. Howard stern shifted from a managed talent to the head honcho... He made the big pay day and had free reign ove his kingdom.

    What did Howard accomplish after being given his own studio, a billion dollars, complete creative control and access to 20,000 hours of what made him who he was?

    Nothing. Howard's management skills drove the brand into the ground and grabbed every available dollar in the process. His brand actually LOST things. This thread is to chronicle the things he lost over the decade of being in charge.

    1. The Howard 100 news organization

    2. Stuttering john

    3. Artie

    4. Jackie

    5. Cabbie

    6. Howard tv

    7. The e show

    8. Camera staff

    9. His lawsuit

    10. The respect of his audience

    He's ahead financially, yes. The bigger point is that he took the money and ran

    Did he ever really have this? Sure we were rabid fans, but wasnt he always just the biggest fish in a tiny pond (radio). When you compare him to real A-list contemporaries, circa his apex 1990-2000(Downey, Hanks, Day-Lewis, Denzel), you see its silly to compare them at all..:lmao:
