    I started listening to the wrap up show from Monday - which is the first one I have listened to since the one the day after Joan's funeral- and instead of saying " you're listening to the wrap up show" hein now says you're listening to the HOWARD STERN wrap up show.

    Obviously he was told he had to do this, but why? Why now? My guess is because the wrap up show started to get their own guests and howie got jelly.

    Anyone else notice this? Or care?

    Didn't notice
    TWUS gets gets that HS turns down, so it can't be that

    Most likely a Marci Turk edict

    It's either some branding bullshit, or Howard wants to dupe some of his listeners who are hard of hearing.

    "Jon, if you say 'HOWARD STERN' in the title, maybe some of the listeners will mistake you for me. I mean I'm only in the studio 2 days a week, so it's not like people hear my voice that often."

    Why do they do lots of things? Howard's ego:

    "Shuli Egar, Howard 100 news"
    "The History of Howard Stern"
    "Howard one hundred Howard one hundred one"
    Superfan Roundtable (fuck Mutt)

    That's a really good observation. I am now thinking of some recent shows where they were having a good or interesting conversation and Jon Hein would literally stop it in its tracks and say something along the lines of "but getting back to Howard..."

    Really? Wow. Howard would sometimes whine about the wrap up show. I usually don't listen, but it is sometimes better than the HSS.

    Howard is a pussy

    It isn't an accident. Howard is moving the WUS (excuse me The Howard Stern Wrap Up Show) as the morning flagship vehicle. Been thinking that a long time. Fans can revel in the good ole day shows with commentary from the staff, including Benji. Fred, Blobbin and Howie will ISDN it in Remember Gary Goofie said long ago Howard believe Jon Hein has a radio voice and talent? Now Jon orchestrates the caste of characters. More and more guests stop by.
    All smoke and mirrors with a large dose of Howard's ego lest we forget its all his idea

    It was always the Howard 100 news and Howard 100 and Howard 101, but it used to be just The wrap up show

    I am with you on all counts!

    During this AGT stretch the WUS would very naturally drift into other areas and topics since Howard was only on two days a week, but Jon would kill all momentum and get back to the "brand."

    The best though was 2 weeks ago (I believe) when Benjy was trying to justify Ray Rice's actions on TWUS, and then Jon actually made him leave the studio (and not just promise to be quiet)because Jeffrey Tambor was coming in and Jon didn't want any of Benjy's nonsense or his prior comments to taint Tambor.

    that's the goal. Dazzle you with the WUS using old shows and commentary from the staff. Soon it will last longer than the HSS. Just saying…

    Every time anyone on his staff succeeds even a little bit outside the confines of the show, Howard gets bothered. The back office show was dumped thanks to it actually being more interesting than the show itself. It's absurd that Howard has two channels and no content.

    Howard is the true 34. Everything has to be about him. Howard 100 new used to talk about real news a little bit when they first started. Howard stopped that pretty fast.
