    He said that the average age of the listener today is 37. He then said that the average age of listeners back in the day was...37.
    What does this mean? That means that most of the faithful old listeners have left.

    The average listener age should have been about 10 years higher, averaging the old fans with the new ones

    Weird thing to reveal because it supports the fact that he has managed to alienate his original fanbase -- they didn't like the evolution of the show and no longer listen. Yeah, he probably doesnt give a shit because "I piss on my fans"

    How dare you post about Howard Stern on a Howard Stern message board. Don't you have a picture of food or a question about what is everyone's favorite (fill in the blank).

    Tough call on how he’d feel about that. On one hand he seems pretty detached from his fans, on the other hand it’s probably hard on his ego.

    I didn't think Howard even looked at stats like that anymore. He must be looking to somehow squeeze a few more shekels out of Sirius using these metrics. Why else would he look at them? He certainly doesn't care about what his listeners want to hear. But yes, I still listen. That tells you how bad the rest of the radio choices are.

    How about some moronic wrestling pictures or references?

    He spoke of the statistic kind of proudly. So he's either to dull to correlate it with losing most of your listener base, or he's aware of the correlation and doesn't give a fuck. Either way...

    I’m sure it’s a lie, because (a) Howard Stern said it; and (b) it’s exactly what the exes and advertisers want to hear.

    We may be getting older, and we may be upset that the show is a fraction of its former self, but the fact is, entertainment is worth more to to execs and advertisers if it can somehow constantly keep the 37 year old, white, male audience. For a show that’s been on for 35 years, that would mean always changing and evolving to keep the right people listening.

    Howie is full of shit though. He’s become less raucous and more boring and whiny as he’s aged, so there’s no way he’s attracting the 37 year-olds of today at the same rate he had them in the 1990s, when he was cutting edge, constantly joking about how much he hated living with his wife, and taking shots at “the beautiful people” on the A-list.

    It’s a nice (bullshit) excuse as to why he has changed and now kisses the asses he used to lampoon, but it just doesn’t make sense.

    Notice that he conveniently left out the number of listeners. If they have the average age, they have those numbers as well.

    He made it up. The dullard Is obsessed with numbers and has magical thinking. It’s why he can’t fire anyone, not because he’s loyal, because it will upset the universe and his world. White knuckling through life.

    I believe this nap is the reason Howard hired Marcy Turk.
