People here still believes that Howard pays anyone. Howard's company have 3 employees incl himself and Beth. On Mars 26 2007 show, Doug Goodstein stormed in to studio and argued with Ralph. He told Ralph that he is Ralph's boss since Ralph is payed by Indemand. Yes. Howard is the boss. He tells Doug if he wants to have Ralph or not. But legally and technically Ralph is an Indemand employee. Howard license his show to Sirius and Indemand. The crew are employees of Sirius and Indemand. This have been confirmed on the show many times and its clearly written in Howard's contract that Sirius provide a show budget. Bubba and Ferrall where payed directly by Sirius. This have been confermed many times. Robin, Fred, Benjy and Gary are independent contractors with 5 years contract. This have been mentioned by Gary many times. Artie had a year to year deal and he was not renewed. Howard did not pocket Artie's money. Sirius did. Howard did not pocket Bubbas and Ferralls money. Sirius did. This is simple facts and yes, it's fun to bash Howard, but do that with facts. Sirius provide a huge budget, enough to hire more then 30 persons that work with the show. And that is the channel problem. Howard have decided that 99% of the budget should go to his show. Remember that Howard believes that 18 million subscribers listens exclusive to him. Ronnie the limo driver is payed by Sirius. It's clearly stated in Howard's contract that he have free 24/7 limo service payed by Sirius. Tony the wig lady is payed by Indemand. When Howard signs non radio contracts he always get them to pay for Ralph and Tony. Look at the movie lawsuit: Howard's contract stated that the movie company had to pay Ralph and Tony. The same thing is with AGT. AGT pays for Tony, Ralph and Ronnie (as a body guard). There is no Howard company with 77 employees. Howard have said many times that there is in total 77 people working with THSS. Howard is intelligent enough not to hire anyone, he lets other do that. Since Howard is the star he is defacto boss even if no one is employed by him.
