    The article doesn't seem to give a number. Or I just can't find it.

    His "secret weapon" at the end of the write up is amusing:

    25 million: Number of SiriusXM subscribers, 12 percent of whom regularly listen to two dedicated Stern channels

    Why he matters:
    In 2005, Stern left terrestrial broadcasting for satellite after landing a five-year deal worth a reported $500 million (he re-upped in 2010 for an additional $400 million; the contract expires in 2015) and by 2013 he proved that he had perfected his interviewing skills with such A-listers as Paul McCartney and Lady Gaga. "I think I've evolved -- God, I hope I have," he says. "My biggest criticism of broadcasters is that they just stick with their ways." Stern certainly has not judging by his extracurriculars, from America's Got Talent on NBC to hosting elaborate pay-per-view events, like his recent 60th birthday party at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom.


    Proudest accomplishment this year:
    Landing coveted interviews with Quentin Tarantino and LenaDunham, who called in to the show after Stern called her fat on air. Stern says the understanding is that he'll "celebrate [a celebrity's] career and really get into their process of how everything works. Slowly but surely the industry is waking up to it."


    Goal for next year:
    "I'm convinced I could interview Robert De Niro and get him to talk. No one's a bad interviewee."


    Secret weapon: "You've got to care," insists Stern. "It would be very easy not to, [but] I never got into radio for the money. It was because I really cared about the medium; I thought I could be my funniest and my best on the radio, not anywhere else."

    reason to never read the reporter again: their judgement is warped.

    This part is even better, and for once close to being truthful:

    25 million: Number of SiriusXM subscribers, 12 percent of whom regularly listen to two dedicated Stern channels

    12% of 25,000,000 = only 3,000,000 listeners on any given day, divided over two channels at that.

    Someone should mention this to Wiggy.

    That's "regularly" listen. That could mean they listen for a few minutes at some point during the week.

    I'd be shocked if more than 1 million are listening to the live show. It's probably a lot lower because, if a million people tune in for part of the show, then there would only be a few hundred thousand at any given time.

    "So Bob. May I call you Bob? Bob. Tell me something. Did you, in a sense, feel resentful because Ben Stiller also made money from "Meet The Parents"? On some level did you say, Gee. I worked hard, all of the proceeds from that movie should be mine. Have you ever orgied?"

    So powerful he can barely move cat calendars. He has to browbeat Robin into buying dozens.
