Well-written article that sounds like many posts here. Howard will need to clandestinely take down the website. http://madmikesamerica.com/2013/04/why-sirius-xm-needs-to-fire-howard-stern/ "Satellite radio was expected to be the next big thing for an America anxious to do away with the relentless product peddling of terrestrial radio. It was supposed to be commercial free. All music, talk, news, all of the time. That, of course, turned out not to be the case, as Americaâ€™s only satellite radio outlet, Sirius-XM has just as many commercials as AM and FM. It also has the 100 million dollar a year Howard Stern. At least when heâ€™s actually in the studio, which is a rare occurrence indeed. ... Speaking about a lot less laughs, comedian Artie Lange, once a Stern show staple, left after attempting suicide in late 2009, which resulted in an 8 month stay in a psychiatric ward in 2010. This left Stern and his eternal sidekick, Robin Quivers who broadcasts remotely and isnâ€™t even in the studio, to make up for lost comedy fun, and they just donâ€™t get it done. The Stern show today is an unexciting mess of interviews with porn stars, tired celebrities, and relentless babble, that only succeeds to bore the increasingly frustrated subscriber. And thatâ€™s when Stern is actually there, which is rare, as he pursues his new television interests. According to Stern himself, the bulk of Sirius-XMâ€™s millions of subscribers are there because of him. His fans. Loyal to the end. Those same fans, however, are starting to complain about Sternâ€™s ever increasing absences, sometimes for weeks on end, and theyâ€™re beginning to wonder why theyâ€™re paying $17.99 a month to listen to someone who is rarely there. I can guarantee when people spend their hard earned money to listen to Howard Stern, they donâ€™t know theyâ€™re paying for a memory."
