    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 Lena Dunham, 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."

    So, Pelican has a "plan" he's executing like Will Smith and his family.

    He should tell his "plan" to Oprah sometime.

    The Stern Birthday show is gonna air on TV soon?
    Howard mentioned it would have commercials when speaking about it the other day.
    Obviously Howard prank'd someone into paying for the music......Mark Cuban TV channel??

    Every time his listeners number gets talked about, it goes down.

    First it was 60% of 25 million. Then it was 12 miullion. Then Billboard said it was 9 million. Then Booey said 8 million. Now the Hollywood reporter says 3 million.

    ...he sure does a lot of reminding people how great he is. when youre on top dont people just have you on their mind anyway? im sure water cooler talk is more about jimmy and jimmy than anybody else. whos even discussing howard stern besides old hard core fans like us? he still makes us laugh but thats because hes turned into such a fruit not because hes a 'shockjock'. incoherent blabbermouth is more like it. he might as well be talking into an empty soup can.

    ....and it's probably under 1 million at this point. Let's face it...even here, almost no one listens.

    Proudest Moment : Landing an interview with Lena Dunham.

    Oh, good work. No one's spoken to her this year. She's a regular fucking recluse.

    This list in general sucks. But no way is Howard more powerful than Lorne Michaels. The guy controls NBC late night now.

    I wonder if Howard would even have the balls to have this show up on a channel where ratings can be tracked.

    I love this line:

    Funny, for anyone who listened to Howard during the WNBC days he absolutely destroyed Soupy Sales on a daily basis. What was his biggest criticism of Soupy? That he evolved and he sold out and he wasn't the same broadcaster that he loved growing up. Yet another Stern hypocrisy.
