let me try to explain. there was once a very vibrant radio industry that many broadcasters thrive in. then came stern like a locust and syndicated his show. this led to many local players being run out. then came the monopoly of the show by westwood and the others that further shutdown the competition. then came sat radio sirius and xm, true sirius was nothing compared to xm before howard showed up, but that wasn't enough then came the merger that stern said he was backing for the good of the 2 companies not some financial motivattion. of course the merger led to hundreds of broadcasters losing their jobs and sirius becoming a monopoly in the sat radio business and the direct drop in wages of many former broadcasters that made a living wage that of course now with only one horse in the race hadno choice but to fade away or work for the starvation wages that sirius seemingly pays all its employees except stern. this fucking guy should not be celebrated by anyone. he is the definition of a locust in human form.
