    Just tweeted him. Thanks, @ALevy

    I want to ask him if Buchwald pays him in sim cards.

    Yawn. Ass-lathering article by an author hoping for an interview with Howard.

    If American journalism ever had standards, they are long gone today.

    The blatant, unapologetic, unrelenting level of this guy's "compensated knob-slobbery" makes Marianne Garvey look like a Little Leaguer.

    I'm hard-pressed to find even a few kernels of truth or reality in this fairy('s) tale.

    I thought Detroit would always remember Howard as the interloper who swooped in from Connecticut to fill his hero Steve Dahl's old job, then thought it would be okay to continue stealing Steve's bits in a city that had actually heard them before, then panicked when Steve's Chicago show was syndicated in Detroit against his own show, then couldn't find another job in town after his station went country because his ratings were unremarkable and he was considered to be a Dahl thief, then skipped out of town and headed back east after just 10 months.

    And did this guy actually just give Howard the Presidential Medal of Listening for how great he is at it during his world's greatest celebrity interviews?

    I wonder if Buchwald allowed that "journalist" to use syrup while he was tossing Wig Vomit's salad.


    It sounds like he's skilled in the arts of war and military tactics.

    I don't get why right now the writer felt the public needed this story. Stern is not in the news for anything. He has tiny amounts of followers on Youtube and Twitter compared to other celebrities. He is no longer on AGT. He isn't trending right now for any earth shattering interview. Why did he think that right now we needed this kiss-ass Buchwald PR piece?

    Imagine if somebody read this and thought, "I will give Howard a try and subscribe to Sirius because this article says how great he is." Well that person will rarely hear Howard live. We are heading into Summer where Stern generally works 6 days a month. And good luck finding out what those vacation days are. The "honest Stern" as this writer states will do everything to hide the fact when they will be off and you get to hear the same repeats from 5 years ago.

    I live here in the Detroit area and grew up with the Detroit news. What was once a decent paper, it's now not even fit for the bottom of a bird cage. What was the point of this article? Howard isn't visiting the city or even promoting anything. POS author and paper.

    That article lost me at the first sentence. How in any sense of reality is Howard one of us? The guy is so out of touch with the average person it isn't funny. The article goes down hill from there.

    Was this article written by someone on staff at the Detriot News or someone on staff in the PR department of Buchwald and Associates?

    Here's one thing about howard I will always respect and admire:

    The guy went from nothing to the Babe Ruth of radio. He worked at garbage radio stations hopping from one horrible low paying job to another: Hartford, Detroit, DC and then gets to NY only to be bullied by clueless management. Out of that came the biggest thing ever in radio

    The funny thing is the article keeps pushing the Stern myth that he grew Sirius from 1 million subscribers to 30 million himself. No mention that at the time of the Sirius XM merger, XM had about 13 million subscribers who subscribed to that service for any number of reasons, but one of them was definitely not Howard Stern.

    The Howard pre-sellout is admirable. Looking back, you can see a lot of the stuff we thought was real was complete and utter bullshit. But that doesn't change the fact, that he is the most successful radio host in history.

    But I disagree management was all that clueless. Howard made them look more clueless than they really were to build his image as the outsider.

    Buchwald paid piece. Probably syndicated to other outlets. If anyone else is interested.

    We often tend to think The PR machine plants these with the target audience being potential listeners / the public in general.

    Reading your post i had a thought... I am thinking the target audience is Howard. I can see him stomping his feet demanding to know why he isnt getting more press and telling his PR peeps to MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    We also tend to assume that he and the PR staff all buddy buddy. But i bet they fucking hate him too and only do this shit to appease him.

    As long as google alerts keep popping up with nice fuzzy stories about him, he feels like he and the show are better than ever.
