    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.

    doesn't matter, well not to anyone except you. i'm surprised you haven't mentioned how InDemand, LLC is a typical joo company stealing the money.

    oh wait, you can't because none of their management is jooos.

    Howard most certainly did pocket Artie's salary. All show costs come out of the money Sirius pays howard's company. Howard keeps what is not paid out.

    Why do you think the show sucks so bad?

    I find it hard to believe that that would be allowed according to the IRS code for Independent Contractors.

    So apparently, the reported $30 or so million a year of Howard's $100 million of his original five year contract that was allocated toward running Howard 100 and Howard 101 was used exclusively for office supplies? That is a lot of Post It notes.

    Fact of the matter is Howard's money paid for the staff. Howard negotiated a budget for the show. Most of the office staff was employed by Howard' company (at least until the new contract) which was paid for money paid to his company by Sirius and people like Gary, Fred, Robin, and Artie were given contracts from another pool from that allocated budget. Ferrell and Bubba were also paid for by that $30 million a year under Howard's deal.

    When Artie was not renewed, Sirius still paid Howard his salary for the last year of Howard's deal. Whether Howard pocketed the money or used it for a show expense is up for debate, but Artie was paid for out of a pool of money that was allocated in Howard's contract and was still paid for whether Artie was employed or not.

    I think part of the reason why Howard's staff became Sirius employees in the new contract is so Sirius had control over their workloads and making sure they got their money's worth out of them.

    They are not independent contractors. They are salaried employees. They negotiated their own deals though. But the money comes out of a Stern Show budget that Don Buckwald negotiated. We are talking semantics here. Howard is not technically paying them, but it is coming out his money that he negotiated for the show. Without knowing the deal, we don't know if he gets to pocket any of the leftover money not used on the budget (i.e. Bubba's salary and budget and Artie's salary after he left).

    Whether its true or not, what was discussed on the show was that Sirius provides a budget for the "Artie Chair", and if the THSS does not use it, they lose it. - Which is why I think we've seen a couple different writers sitting in this year.

    I don't buy it. If Sirius had a salary for Artie or anyone else why you he just let Sirius pocket the money instead of himself. He's all about the marbles and thinks Sirius is screwing him. He never said that Sirius was screwing him over by not having a budget for Bubba or any other show. He would be bitching about any cuts to his show days a week for 40 weeks.

    Plus Howard got a paycut with the last 5 year deal. He even admitted by saying that he didn't get a paycut because he works less to make up for it. So per show he makes the same, but he's prolly lying about that too. Howard is all about the marbles.

    he didn't. Howard negotiated a set budget for the show with his contract. Artie's money came out of that contract. When he left (at least for the one year left on Howard's deal), Sirius still paid that money to the budget.

    The only way Sirius could have blocked Howard from hiring someone else was that they told Howard in advance that they were not going to give a budget in his new contract for someone to sit in the Artie chair when it came time to re-negotiate his deal a year from then. But it was more likely that they informed him that they were going to drastically cut the salaries and stations budgets when they renegotiated and Howard decided that he could limit his paycut (and possibly for some of his staff) by eliminating the third on air staff member from the budget.

    First, that is Howard's version of what happens to Artie's money. We all know that Howard lies about a lot of things (only having an one year deal with NBC for AGT, not getting a percentage of the commercials, having in his deal that he got a credit for all XM subscribers in a merger). No one from Sirius ever confirmed that the show lost that money. In fact, Howard had a negotiated budget for the show in his contract. He would have sued if he lost that money.

    Second, Artie's salary would have only been around for one more year. When Howard's contract was up, so was the budget for the show and all other deals. Even if Artie renegotiated, it would have been for one year with a possible contingent for longer if Howard renewed.

    Howard was never going to admit that Artie's money either was pocketed to him or going somewhere else on the show. People were pissed that Artie was gone and no one was replacing him. Better to blame Sirius for taking away the money than admit he pocketed it or it went to pay for something else that fans didn't care about.
