    SBR Book ???? Howard Stern resign prop??

    Can we get a "will Howard Stern resign with Sirius Satellite" Or "will his last show on Sirius be December 16th"


    I'm not sure how this would work out, because I can see him resigning and taking off until after New Years, but he'd announce that he resigned before he took his break, i'd imagine.

    I don't think that is a good idea. I don't see him leaving there for a while. I likes it too much there.

    his staff would have left for other jobs by now. No one has left, so that leaves me to believe he re-signs. Remember in June and July when Gary was worrying about the staff leaving for other jobs.

    Yea, but then again, he could have something else in the works, and he's already told the staff, and they all know what's going on. Instead of announcing it, it leaves them with decent talks of whether he'll resign or not, since it's not out in the public

    He could be going to a podcast...His own hours...3 days a week...million+ subscribers at 3-5 bucks a month = 60 Million a year. Not exactly sure how that shit works out, but I'm sure plenty of people would drop sirius and pay that much for Stern alone.

    When stern left free radio, I stopped listening because he didn't care about the lifelong fans.

    But Sirius/XM has 20 million subscribers...Do you guys really think that it's for the music only?

    I for one know that if it wasn't for Stern or Jason Ellis, I wouldn't subscribe since there are things like Pandora, and plenty of other media players.

    Stern is definitely not a big deal any more. Certainly gets more money now, but his show I think was more popular when it had FCC controversies to surround it and was "taboo" on terrestrial radio. On satellite, it's just another crude show that is solely based on existing listeners ...

    No Artie means no Stern for me. At least some sports was mentioned with Artie.

    Kyhawk has a good point for us sports guys. I love Stern and the gang to death but Artie was key for sports, gambling, beligerence, and comedy.

    Yea...Now it's time to call sirius and tell them I want to cancel. Then they can come back with a cheaper rate for me. Only subscribed for 6 months, because I was able to listen to him for free, but now that site isn't good anymore.

    Plus they need all the money they can get to pay him, so they'll offer me half price or better if I sign on long term with them.

    This guy just spent the last 6 months talking about how great it sounded to leave Sirius...and now he resigns.

    I think it's fascinating how miserable he is despite all that he's accomplished. It's one thing to say that, but to be in his shoes with what he has and actually be THAT miserable is absolutely mind-blowing.

    Dude was never going anywhere else. No one else in the world would pay him what he makes at Sirius. It was just a rouse to get people to talk about the "possibilities" and probably somewhat of a negotiating ploy for him to try to overestimate his worth again ... from all I've read, he either resigned for what he was making or took a cut.

    artie was the only reason i tuned in. his rage, his alcohol abuse stories, his drug stories.. how much he ate last night and how he got to be over 300 lbs and he can't stop eating.. how he loves to bang hookers, and his amazing gambling stories about his bookie or who he had last night and how much he's up or down.. etc..

    no more of that now is boring.. i miss artie.. show is nothign without him.

    Yep, Artie is essential. Any word on if he's gonna come back at some point? I've heard nothing about him but drug rumors.

    howard rules and highly doubtful artie will be back on show on an everyday basis. way too much for the guy to handle.

    Ngates. Do what im gonna do. My sub ends Jan 1st of this year. Im going to call in and tell them im going to cancel because they didnt resign bubba. Ive heard of a ton of people say if you do this they will offer you 5 months free/ or 5 months for $20. Some even said they could have gotten a new receiver.

    But i think Howards show is just as good as its ever been, granted ive only listened in the sirius years so i dont know his radio prior but i cant imagine it wth censorship. I hate History of HS, i think its horrible.....why no best of 2010?

    Yea, I called and told them It doesn't work on my phone, and I use that to listen on my way to work. It has been hit or miss, it didn't work for a while, then it did work flawlessly, now it doesn't work again. But I just listen to Stern in the morning, then Jason Ellis in the afternoon while at work.

    They gave me a year for 72 bucks.

    I don't mind the History of Howard Stern, since I've only listened to it while it's been on Sirius, and for a year while he was on in Chicago. I like to listen to some of the old stuff, but I prefer the non censored stuff. I enjoy hearing F bombs and shit like that.

    The Sirius app now has howard. I was using an app called pocket tunes for my iPhone and it took forever to load. The Sirius app works so much better there is almost no load time and comes up immediately
