    How will Howard be remembered. .. the fake shock jock or the fake nice guy pussy?

    I have a feeling that history will only remember the strippers and porn stars....

    This part of Stern's life will be forget much like Joe Montanas playing for the Chiefs or Johnny U. Ending his career with The Chargers


    Notable exception one Mutt who instead of taking the million dollars will be greating people at walmart until his dying day

    Why would history care about Stern?

    I think HS has already faded almost into oblivion. His day has passed. No one cares, except a few old fans.

    Agreed. ..but there will be a sliver of time where he will still be the answer to a trivia question

    Plus remember Stern had memorabilia saved for the HS museum..

    If he's remembered at all, it will be as a buffoon who had no talent other than self-promotion.

    This, no one will remember. He didnt have an impact on pop culture.

    You can ask a young person who Stern is and they have no idea. If you ask them who John Travolta is they do the disco dance. See how that works?

    How many radio guys do you remember? Exactly. The dude is train wrecking his legacy since at least 2008. Really think about it... he's physically wiping himself out by censoring all those old tapes. He wishes he could go back and change his books and movie. Pissed on everyone that supported him up until 2012, if there was anyone left to piss on. He doesn't have enough time left in his life/career to reinvent himself or make anyone care about him. His last gasp with AGT failed. "Fuck 'em" (Fred sound drop)

    Notebook Full of Ideas under a glass case, unopened. Bobo will be buried with it after he purchases it off of eBay for $2.

    It's a side show, a circus. You can go down to the strip club for the same shit. He did nothing ground breaking or unique. Look, i am not hating on him, I'm just telling you how it is. No one cares about Howard.

    He definitely did some ground breaking pop culture stuff in his early days which broke ratings records for radio audiences, but all in all...no big deal in the scheme of history especially with his current backtracking, PC style, abandonment of his fans. He will be remembered as a sell out, shit, lying prick by most of us. Future generations will not know him and question who he is similar to asking about the musicians called the Beatles. And the Beatles were historic, not Stern!

    He is already primarily remembered for strippers and porn stars and basically being kicked off of terrestrial radio, that's it. Most people don't realize he still has a show on the air.

    Arthur Godfrey was bigger than Howard, but now he's pretty much forgotten. There's still lots of info about him online, but you have to make that effort to search, because otherwise he has no influence on anything and hardly anyone now has heard of him or cares. When Howard's fans (marks) are history, so will Howard's memory.

    Stern is and will be a minor footnote in the history of radio. Radio giants like Jack Benny and Amos & Andy are barely remembered today and they had 20 times the audience Howard ever had. Howard will be totally forgotten (except by radio historians) in less than a generation.
