    Howard is probably leaving Sirius in January to reinvent his career, or not. Wouldn't it make sense, financially and fan-wise for Opie and Anthony to "make-up", get their old fans hyped up and reunite? Including Norton. If they took advantage of Stern retiring, they are the only people that can attempt to sop up the fans left holding their cocks with nothing to do. Some of you do not like O and A, but they have had their moments. Split apart, it is obvious that they are both going nowhere fast. If they wait to long, nobody will care.

    Everything makes sense here,except Sterns not leaving,unless he gets super sick or croaks.Since his parents are still alive,don`t excpect Stern to get sick or croak for 10 yrs at least.

    I see it more likely that Sirius will still pay him five times more than he deserves, even with a pay cut.

    I think the whole medium is a dying art. Most kids are listening to their iPods and adults are listening to podcasts. I really wish Sirius would release some sort of ratings. I'd love to know if anyone is even listening. I'm the only one I know.

    Howard's going to keep the show simply because he has nothing else.

    I would fully support this. Maybe we could also raise Patrice from the dead and bring him back, too. But in all seriousness , I have been listening to old O&A shows and its like night and day from then and now. I love O&Jimmy , but Ant just added that extra oomph that really brought the show together. Here's hoping...

    Sirius would have to hire Anthony back, which they won't - his firing was a feather in their cap.

    Even if they did, Anthony would have to want to come back, and he's said recently that he wouldn't.

    If he did, though, it wouldn't be the same show. Anthony would be paid a pittance, forever having to hold his tongue lest he be shitcanned for saying something marginally inflammatory. It would be a lame, tame version.

    Would it be better than the current Stern Show? For sure, but will it happen? Nah.

    it was all for naught anyway. Sirius/XM needs to hold onto whatever they can. Podcasting is chipping away whatever they have left.
