Why is it kept hush-hush every-time someone is fired from the show or quits?

    What is the big fucking deal??

    The show has had an almost 100% turn over in staff sans Howard, Robin and Fred yet these idiots that kiss Howard's ass are treated like disposable diapers filled with Indian curry shit

    when the show needs to cut $1 from their budget...


    Man I can't wait until someone finally starts spilling their guts.. on the DL since I am sure their is a confidentially agreement that is a foot thick that they all have to sign ..

    Shit when Jackie quit at least that made from some interesting radio

    Howard doesn't want the public to know that the rats are abandoning his sinking ship.

    Because of Dawgsaloon, GaryPuppet and NotMyBro.

    Yes, he is that petty. He knows damn well his 80,000 remaining listeners wouldn't give a shit. He's deeply preoccupied with his "bullies".

    It's just like when anybody is fired from their job. Their immediately thrown out with a box. Once it's over, it's over. You don't want any remnants of that person.

    The football coach at my alma mater was there for 11 years, he totally revitalized the program. He was considered a God. Then the past few years, he sucked. So when he was fired in November, he had to clean out of his office within a day and was escorted out of the building.

    That was some of the dumbest bullshit I ever heard uttered on a radio show.

    isn't the HSS based on howard's life and the interaction he has with his wacky staff?

    howard makes such a big deal of giving everyone nick names he should at least have the balls to tell his audience when they leave


    i think maybe it boils down to the fact that he has told everyone that HE NEVER fires anyone

    and as we now know he has someone else do his dirty work

    Not discussing people leaving the show is consistent with the Stern channels' policy of lies and less than full disclosure.

    Teddy wasn't a big player on the show, but they could have at least told the audience - even Jim Rome gave a 15 second passing mention when his 10+ year producer "left to pursue other things".

    He doesn't say anything because he doesn't want to get sued for harming the person's chances at future employment.

    Duh. :coffee:

    Howard's show is based on honesty, too, according to Howard.

    Howard doesn't like to look bad. If someone leaves on their own and goes to another organization, it suggests that Howard's is inferior. If they just quit without finding another job it means there's something really bad about working for Howard. If they're fired it makes Howard seem like a villain. That's why Mr. Honesty just pretends it never happened unless someone confronts him, then he lies about it.

    Will Howard start attacking Teddys next place of work like he got mad at Jay?

    Would love to see a Howard V.s Costco's tire center

    I'm telling you, it's about a fear of a lawsuit. If he fires someone and then trashes them, live, on the radio, it would be impossible for him to convince a jury that he didn't anticipate how his on-air tirade negatively affected the person's chances at finding new work.

    It would be the opposite of a good reference letter. He would be, in effect, telling all the employers within earshot that this person was _____.

    Keep your eye on the $$$.
