    He has turned into the thing he made fun of, which in turn made us laugh. So now we are laughing at him.

    I can't say it was just Beth. I still enjoyed the show up until a few years ago. He should never have signed again for 5 years. He clearly was done.

    Howard Stern to Shift Show to Satellite Radio in 2006

    [SIZE=-1]By BILL CARTER

    [​IMG]n a deal estimated to cost $100 million a year for five years, Howard Stern, one of the most popular personalities in radio, has signed a contract with the Sirius Satellite Radio Company and will leave his longtime home on Infinity Broadcasting starting in January 2006.


    The $100 million figure covers production and operating costs for the Stern show, according to a statement by Sirius.


    Mr. Stern said in a telephone interview today that his decision was driven both by a desire to help build satellite radio, which is unregulated by the federal government and mostly free of commercials, and by the need to escape what has become ever-increasing restrictions on the content of his program.


    Numerous radio stations that carry Mr. Stern's show have been fined heavily by the Federal Communications Commission over sexual and scatological references on the show. A number of stations owned by Clear Channel Communications dropped Mr. Stern's show over the continuing problems with the F.C.C.


    "I have to get away from all these restrictions," Mr. Stern said. "Between the government and the religious fanatics, they are ruining what has been exciting about radio."

    On satellite radio he will not have to deal with any such restrictions, or as he put it in a statement released by Sirius, he will "bring my fans my show my way." Listeners pay a monthly fee to receive satellite radio service, and much of the programming is uninterrupted by commercials, although Mr. Stern's program will have advertising. Sirius and another company, XM Satellite, are the main competitors in the field.

    But it is still a nascent business. A Sirius spokesman said the company had only about 600,000 customers when last measured at the start of September. Mr. Stern, whose show is often ranked No. 1 in many of the cities where he is carried, has a national audience estimated at about 12 million.....

    When he lied about:
    Taking some Fridays off
    taking some Thursday's off
    taking some Monday's or Wednesday's off
    the merger being good for the consumer
    The news crew having no limits or boundaries, even him

    When he ignored:
    The lawsuit
    robins medical condition
    richards wedding
    agts horrendous ratings
    getting passed over by American idol

    When he:
    Sold out
    Posed on us and tried to sell us that it was raining
    got married to an annoying cunt
    reversed every opinion he ever had
    joined agt
    turned the show into an infomercial for agt
    Started ending the show at 10 sharp
    ran the same amount of ads as terrestrial radio

    When the:
    First Sirius contract was made public
    schow schedule was made "public"
    Show sponsors were sleazier than an aids infested bleeding dick on an alley corner after midnight
    live reads added more content than guests or bits
    fucking phone rings at 6:30 sharp every morning with bono on the line and he refuses to not pick it up
    guest list evaporated like a snowball on the surface of the sun
    Effort turned into overt marble collection

    Take your pick...

    I haven't listened to Stern in 12 years, but I know I'd take Imus over him any day.

    My top 3 reasons:

    1. Got sick and tired of the bait and switch tactics
    2. Hypocracy.
    3. Finally turning into what he had attacked for years.
