When O&A went to satellite, I specifically bought XM because of them, so XM was a destination, for this person, because of O&A.
And when Howard went to satellite in all likelihood about 2 million people chose Sirius specifically because of him.

I'm sure there are people like yourself who chose XM for O&A. But there's no comparision as to who had the bigger impact for bringing the average radio listener over to satellite. That does not mean Stern is better or funnier. But Stern has a much larger audience and name recognition.

I highly doubt two-thirds of Sirius subscribers bought their service solely because of Howard.

I don't believe the "average radio listener" is jumping on the satellite train just yet. Most people buying satellite seem to either be passionate radio listeners, or buying for a specific show/product (O&A, Howard, MLB, NFL, etc.).

The amount of subscribers to Sirius will continue to rise. It's very difficult to get the radios right now in a lot of places.


I'll be interested to see the next couple of announcements about Sirius subscriber totals.

But you have to concede that Howard drew more listeners to Sirius than O&A did to XM.

I subscribed to Sirius primarily for Howard, however I would not have done so if it was only Howard. The rest of the package is sensational. Better than I could have hoped for.

I haven't turned on my regular radio since 12/31/05 when I fired up Sirius.

Couldn't agree more. I got my XM for Christmas '04. Asked for it because of O&A. Had no idea how great the rest of the programming would be.

Only time I turn on local radio (never FM) is to get traffic updates.

I'm not sure if the increase in price was related to O&A going from $2 to free, but that is what happened. XM also though made free (it was $3.95 a month) streaming XM from the Internet at the same time. There is no question that Sirius is Stern (in terms of financial success) and XM is built around a bunch of stuff and not any one item.


I have a hard time with this though. Aside from Stern/O&A they are nearly identical. I don't see anything that XM has that Siruis doesn't and vice-versa. Yes there are different aspects (Baseball vs Football) but the programing is nearly identical.

The same could be said of satilite radio in general. We purchased it about a year ago and we haven't listened to "free" radio since. Also haven't changed the CD shuffle in the car in quite some time.

Agreed, however, had it not been for Howard signing with Sirius, I probably would have gone with XM since they have MLB and they were the more known entity at the time when I was looking at satellite. Howard moving to Sirius really was the deciding factor for me. You really can't go wrong with either service though.

Baseball wasn't a factor for me. I get the Yankees on regular radio, that's all I really need. I can't see myself ever wanting to listen to other teams playing on the radio.

Sirius was a no-brainer for me. They just need to get a full time Progressive Rock Station.

There are several.

Ellen Degeneras on XM and Martha Stewart on Sirius
Snoop Dogg and Bob Dylan on XM, Little Stevie on Sirius
XM has MLB, NHL (Sirius does too, but loses the rights after 2006-07) and PGA, Sirius has NFL, NBA and in 2007 NASCAR. (Also XM has 3 NCAA conferenes, Sirius 3 others).
And of course XM has O&A and Ron and Fez, Sirius has Stern.
There are other differences, Sirius has stations dedicated to individual performers. XM has stations dedicated to individual decades.
Also most concede that XM has a sizable advantage in terms of equipment. But for the most part, there isn't that much difference. Just like Comcast and Cablevision are similiar.

Well I live outside the NYC area so MLB would have been a nice bonus, but I watch most of the games on TV anyway (MLB EI) and sometimes I can pick up AM 880 in my car so it worked out okay for me even before Howard moved over. I absolutely love Left of Center and First Wave. I could not live without those two stations now. You're right, there is no dedicated prog rock station, which is kind of surprising. Have you tried The Vault? Sounds like it might be up your alley.

I agree. They are nearly identical.

Sirius has a 60s, 70s, 80s station as well and Eminem.


They are basically identical with differing personalities.

Oh, I meant my statement in a general sense of satellite vs. "free" radio. Other than Stern and MLB, I can't tell the difference between the two of them and don't have a dog in the fight. I ultimately went with XM (at first - I actually tried going with Sirius for the home office but it was a catastrophie unfortunately...no Stern for me :( ) because I got to listen to Yankee games in my car again. Hearing John Sterling's voice may seem awful to you guys back east, but when you're tooling around in CA, 3500 miles away from NY, it's gives me a piece of home at least for a little while.

The bottom line is satellite is wonderful and after having it for just a little while you can't imagine ever being without it.

You can't always trust Sirius subscriber announcements. They took a hit a few months ago when it came out that they were counting new cars that have the radio built in as subs, even before the car is sold. XM didn't count the built in systems until the owner subscribes either through their lease or separately.

I have a feeling they won't need to be posting subscriber counts any more.

At the 4 Radio Shacks (in my immediate area) I visited about 2 weeks ago trying to find the Home Kit for the Starmate Replay Radio, the BEST I could do was 16th on the waiting list.

I was lucky enough to find one online at Circuit City. I bought it for pick up. The woman who rang me up said they couldn't keep them in the stores, they were going out as they were delivered.

Left of Center is fantastic and I like First Wave too I just can't listen to it for very long.

To be honest with you, what I have been doing most often is sitting down on my couch near my computer and putting on the classical channels. I have never been a huge fan of it but I am really getting in to it.

For some, the issue will become "Does the company allow streaming while at work?" But it will be cool for those that can. All you need is one Howard Stern hating boss and bye-bye streaming.

-- I love Howard and I'm kind of ticked that he's added so many listeners to Sirius because I was really hoping they'd merge.
-- I have XM because it was the only option my car came with, and I LOVE the baseball main station -- listen to it almost all the time when I'm in the car, so i"m happy to have XM but I miss Howard..
-- I also like that Sirius has a Springsteen station and others that are devoted to single acts -- I would LOVE that...

Any chance they will still merge?

I am an O&A fan (as I've said before) and I prefer O&A as I think they are better (my opinion). That being said, I can't lie about the facts. Stern is bigger. How big? Well in the 4th Quarter in 2005 Sirius units FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER outsold XM units. Yes, XM got more subscribers in all of 05, but in the 4th quarter they didn't.

I think both companies will do well in the long run. I heard that 10 million subscribers is what is needed to break even. I think both will be there in the next few years. I honestly think this is an area that will continue to grow when people start seeing what it is all about. I never heard satellite radio until last summer on vacation. The rental car had XM on it and that got me thinking. MLB on XM was the clincher.

I'd give it a 9. It's still early though, but he is entertaining us and I have heard very few rants about the FCC or censorship. Sure it does come up occassionally, but mostly we're just getting pure entertaining, uncensored bits and interviews.

I would say it's about an 8, but that's because it's only the second week, and he still has to talk about some of the new things about the show, SIRIUS sales, etc. If George Takei was still live in studio, I would definitely bump my grade up to a 9.

Howard Stern may be coming down with a Sirius case of the bleeps. High-level executives of the satellite broadcaster are developing an internal standards-and-practices document that will set boundaries for Stern and other shock jocks, The Post has learned. “It’s something that’s being taken very seriously," a Sirius source said.

http://www.nypost.com/news/regionalnews/62098.htm

Hahaha, the irony of it all. I'm not one for censorship, but you have to admit, this is pretty funny considering the lengths Stern went through.

Personally, I don't think it will have much of an impact on his show, but who knows what's in store for Stern down the road? Maybe by that time he'll realize a stripped down lesbian sitting on a 60 year old man's lap isn't exactly funny or entertaining. Hopefully he'll dig down deeper into his true talents, which he does possess but doesn't seem to take full advantage of.

I saw that and thought it was pretty funny too. I don't know how much of an impact such guidelines would have. Would it be "standards and practices" as compared to what Infinity demanded? I doubt that.

If it ever did become severe, I'm sure $500 million will go a long ways towards making it easy to swallow.

No, dude. The only source that it was bogus was AZ's own bias. The story might turn out to be bogus or exaggerated, but that would surprise me. There is no way Stern will be able to get away with "anything". Even he knows that. Sirius also doesn't want to give the government a reason to set its sights on it (infuriating as that may be, it's fodder for another time).

One more thing on AZ's comment: you really think any enterprise Rupert Murdoch is involved in wants to tone down content? ;)

Wait - because Howard said no one talked to him about this it must be fake? Consider what he said - no one has talked to him about this. Far cry from saying there's no truth to it.
Well also consider the source of the story was the NY Post. I'm taking it with a grain of salt for now. FWIW, Howard said today that the only discussion with Sirius managment thus far has been around libel and slander guidelines, which Howard fully supports.

Murdoch doesn't want to tone down his own content, but he wouldn't mind putting a dent in the Bush bashing Stern.


Thanks for the update. So once again people are subjected to irresponsible reporting by the media.

He's been great. He sounds excited to do his show again, and satellite is definitely the right medium to do his show the way he intended. For example, today he was playing clips of the AVN Awards (Adult Video News) and half the fun was just hearing the names of the movies. On terrestrial radio most of the names would have been bleeped out. Community standards prohibits me from listing examples.

George Takei was on the show every day for the first week, and he was hilarious. Howard already has a bunch of great guests lined up for the next few weeks. You should definitely look into getting Sirius if you can.

Did anyone hear that Howard GAVE Robin a car after yesterday's show?

I believe that it's a 2006 Mercedes SLK Roadster hard top convertible.


from marksfriggin.com:




After the show, during The Wrap Up Show, Robin told Gary and Jon Hein that Howard took her down to the basement of the building and spoke to hear about how much he appreciates all the years they've worked together. He walked her through the basement and to a dumpster down there... and there was a car next to the dumpster. Howard was telling her that he got her something and there was a bow on the car that was down there. He bought her a Mercedes Hard Top convertible. Robin said that she has looked at the car for many years and would never buy it for herself. Robin said that the car is black with a grey interior with SIRIUS satellite radio installed.


Robin said that no one has ever done anything like that for her in her whole life. Gary said that her eyes were kind of misty right then and she said it was shocking to have something like that. Jon Hein wondered what it was that she thought Howard wanted to talk to her about. Gary jokingly said ''Did you hear that sound? That was Jackie having a stroke...''

Robin said that people don't understand how much fun they've had over the years. She said they get paid to have a blast every day and she never expected a car from Howard. She said Howard has already done far more than anyone else would ever do for her. She was very emotional and couldn't express the way she really felt today. She rarely feels this way about anything.

Ronnie the Limo Driver came in and said he saw Robin crying down there and Howard was so excited to have done that for her. They met at the Mercedes dealer on Saturday and picked out just the right car for her. Robin figured it was going to be something small but it turned out to be this car.

Robin said that Howard walking through the door of his surprise birthday party was the best reaction she's ever gotten out of Howard in all the years she's known him. Gary said that it was almost like the first time Robin threw him a party when he was just as surprised. The guys had to take a break during that discussion.

A little later, after the break, Ronnie asked her about the color combo on this car Howard got her. She said she usually likes silver but she loves black. She always had black before getting an Audi TT in silver one time. She said she loves this car in black. Ronnie said there was a lot of arguing about whether or not to get black or silver. Robin said they made the right choice with the black.

Gary said that Robin always came driving up in some wild cars and he never knew that she owned them. Robin told Gary that this car is great because it's got a hard top that folds down to make it a convertible. She said she loves that she'll have this car because it's so easy to move the top. The guy from Mercedes is waiting for Robin as she's doing this interview. She was very nervous about it and had to drive the car home herself. She was ready to drive the car home and may put the top down today with the heat on high.

Robin said that she's really into these cars and had a Corvette Z06 on order. She's not sure what to do now that she has this car so Ronnie told her to sell her old Corvette because the Z06 is going to be worth a lot more money than the old one. A listener called in and said that his car just broke down the other day and he figured that Robin could help him out by giving him one of those.

Another caller mentioned that Robin has a Lexus Hybrid SUV. Robin said that vehicle is great because it gets such great mileage. She also said that this show is great because we get to hear about the stuff that goes on behind the scenes. Robin said she wanted to get this story on the air as soon as she could while she's still emotional. A caller asked Robin what's going on with her TV talk show. She said that the show is on hold right now but they have plenty of work to do there. Benjy called in and told the guys that he got Robin a gift for Christmas too... some sweet smelling soaps. One caller told the guys that this conversation was really boring so they should move on. They did move on a short time later

Then he went on to say that his son couldn't get a date for the prom because "all but two of the girls in his class are lesbians and the two who are not gay are ugly." I kid you not.

As others have already noted, so far no truth to this at all. Listen to the show for 5 minutes and it is very evident that nobody is censoring Howard on Sirius. According to Stern, the only meeting he has had with Sirius management thus far on standards has been around libel/slander issues, and he fully supports those standards.

He doesn't make half a billion dollars, that's the operating budget for the station for the next 5 years, many of those millions go directly into Robins pocket.

He doesn't really know yet. But when you think about it, he's doing so much more show these day's.

He's not forced to take 20 minutes of commercials every hour and he's not forced off the air at 10:30 any more. He's now signing off on some day's 11-11:30 ish and only taking 2 3-5 minute breaks an hour

That's true, but Howard should have said more about this sooner. I did hear before Jan 9th, that this was the plan, but not from Howard. I'm sure his critics will cry how lame this is or whatever. Don't like it, don't subscribe.

That said he does stay on an hour later extra per day and that does add up and there is plenty of material and other shows on his channels to entertain us.

Regardless, I have no plans of cancelling my Sirius subscription over it. His show has been better than ever and there's plenty more options besides Howard to listen to. Personally, Friday has been my least amount of listening days anyway.

Why didn't CBS just fire him?

Howard Stern being sued by CBS for breach of contract:

http://msnbc.msn.com/id/11608693/

"CBS Corp.’s radio division sued Howard Stern Tuesday, claiming its former star shock jock breached his contract with them when he moved to Sirius Satellite Radio Inc.

The lawsuit, which also names Sirius and Stern’s agent as defendants, claims Stern improperly used CBS radio’s air time to promote his new show with Sirius, which began last month. CBS also claims Stern discussed his plans with Sirius without disclosing them to CBS as required under his contract.

Even before the lawsuit was filed in New York State Supreme Court, Stern tried to upstage the action with a hastily arranged news conference in Manhattan Tuesday to strike first at his former employer.

Stern said the lawsuit was meritless, and said CBS was trying to “bully” him. He called the lawsuit a “personal vendetta” against him by CBS Chief Executive Officer Leslie Moonves, whom Stern said held a grudge against him."

Even before the lawsuit was filed in New York State Supreme Court, Stern tried to upstage the action with a hastily arranged news conference in Manhattan Tuesday to strike first at his former employer.

Stern said the lawsuit was meritless, and said CBS was trying to “bully” him. He called the lawsuit a “personal vendetta” against him by CBS Chief Executive Officer Leslie Moonves, whom Stern said held a grudge against him."

You all know I don't like Stern, but that is rediculous. They knew he was leaving and even though he didn't really have to, you knew he was going to talk up his move to get people to join up. I think it's funny that they want to get the whole $500 million.

I guess this will give him enough material to whine about for a while now.


I think the thing is, it's not really the Howard Stern show anymore, it's a network. Multiple channels, multiple shows and personalities. I'm not really upset by it, I think enough is being done during other time slots to make up for it.

He had 14 months to come up with stuff for two channels and all he got was "Bubba the Love Sponge" and shows about his show. Sounds real entertaining.

He's going to get even more free Sirius advertising from CBS. Amazing how this lawsuit hits immediately after the new ratings reoports came out showing how bad CBS radio stations have tanked in the morning.

I know this isn't exactly Howard news, but because there's no David Lee Roth thread I think it best fits here.

In Boston, David Lee Roth is now 16th in the local ratings. Of course Howard was rated #1 as recently as December. It's amazing how quickly Roth has lost Howard's audience. I wonder how long Infinity will continue to pay him.


WBCN’s morning ratings with Roth on the air dropped to 16th place in February from 12th place in January among adults ages 25 to 54, according to Arbitrend numbers given to the Herald.

That’s a big blow to the FM station considering it was No. 1 in the fall before Howard Stern bolted for Sirius Satellite Radio.

WBCN’s morning rating share fell again to 2.2 in February from 3.1 in January. When Stern left in December, the share was 9.2.

Roth, who took over for Stern on the East Coast in January, has been widely criticized by radio insiders for his lack of experience and bad attitude. The former Van Halen frontman blew off a Boston appearance earlier this month.

I do think that several of the comics tanked. Especially when they were trying to make fun of Daniel, I think alot of them were to angry at him to actually say something funny. But I did think they were saying some pretty funny stuff to each other.

And I thought Daniel was saying some funny stuff, about he likes to go to comedy clubs and how he just saw the Larry the Cable Guy movie.

The bottom line is you just can't replace Howard Stern. He is the "Michael Jordan" of radio, whether you liked him or not. It will be a long time until someone matches his success on terrestrial radio.

All I can say is $12.95/mo is a bargain for not only his show, but the rest of the music and entertainment you get.

Artie was awful. He gave no effort at all. I wasn't a big Artie fan when Howard was on K-Rock, but Artie has been stellar since the move. Not yesterday though. It was a disappointing drive to work.

Shock jock Howard Stern got the scare of his life when a crazed fan spit in his girlfriend's face and threatened both of them on an upper West Side street, sources said yesterday.

But a frightened Stern quickly turned crimefighter, helping cops nab the screaming, arm-waving lunatic, the sources said.

Stern, who is regularly approached by friendly fans on the street, was particularly shaken by the "deranged" man's angry outbursts, a source close to the radio host said.

His nerves, however, were calmed by a dozen or so cops who sped to the scene.

"It was very upsetting and traumatic, but he was very pleased with the professionalism and responsiveness of the police," the source said.

The story - which the privacy-loving shock jock may never talk about on his show - unfolded shortly after 8 p.m. Saturday as Stern and leggy girlfriend Beth Ostrosky were walking on Columbus Ave. at W. 62nd St. after dinner.

Wide-eyed fan Gregory Forbes recognized Stern and confronted the longhaired satellite radio gabber, screaming, "Howard!" Forbes, 50, allegedly screamed and waved his arms, threatening Stern and Ostrosky - getting right in their faces and making them fear for their lives, the sources said.

When the couple walked away and jumped into a cab, Forbes chased after them with his fists raised and spit through the taxi's open window into Ostrosky's face, a court complaint charges.

Stern managed to call cops - but by the time they arrived, Forbes was gone, the sources said.

Undaunted, Stern hopped into an unmarked police car with anti-crime cops and helped them scour the area for the weirdo, sources said.

Blocks away, two detectives spotted a man fitting Forbes' description about 8:50 p.m. Stern, from the safety of the unmarked police car, identified Forbes as the suspect, sources said.

Forbes, who lives in a boardinghouse in Hamilton Heights, was hauled to the 20th Precinct stationhouse on W. 82nd St., the sources said. He was arraigned last night in Manhattan Criminal Court on charges of third-degree menacing and second-degree harassment and held on $500 bail.

A representative for Stern, who lives with Ostrosky in Manhattan, could not immediately be reached for comment.

The weekend menacing incident was not the first time violent fans have threatened Stern. Ten years ago this month, a shotgun-packing man was busted in midtown after allegedly running after Stern's limousine as it pulled into a studio loading dock. In 1999, a man who once pointed a toy gun at Ronald Reagan in the 1970s was sentenced to 21/2 years in prison for sending letters to Stern threatening his life.

You got just such a fan right here. I actually ordered the "Executive" and was going to have it for the office. The set up was a huge pain in the ass. Got to a point where I just thought to myself "I'm really not in the mood to go to all this trouble to still pay them $12.95 a month for crappy reception." So I gave up and sent it back.

:lol: 20 million. Maybe by 2010 there'll be 20 million with satellite. At this rate when Sirius gets to 20 million XM will have 35million.

Believe it or not I don't hate Howard, I just don't like how he's all about the money and lies. If he's up to new "wild & crazy" stuff why did he re-record old bits to have Artie instead of Jackie in them?

I agree...he should totally be streamed online. Again, XM has the online stream for all of their owned content (all the music, comedy, and O&A). It's part of my monthly fee. XM has more people and it's not an issue. Sirius needs to update their hardware I guess becuase there's no reason they can't have the stream for their 4 million when XM has it for their 7 million (not that all 7 million would ever be online at once). The only stuff they don't have is the channels they simply pass along like ESPN, MSNBC and the baseball games.

XM does have Sirius beat in the technical department. It's almost as if they said "let's get Howard", but not even consider all the technical ramifications. They had a year to get ready for Howard's arrival and they blew it for some customers. I'm lucky my radio can pick up a good terrestrial signal or I would be screwed. Not to mention the numerous radio shortages Sirius has had in some markets didn't help either.

On O & A this morning (the broadcast version) they were talking about a run in they had last week with one of Howard's listeners that turned physical. Did Howard mention that at all? I'm curious what his take on it would be, if he had one.

Honestly, some of the fans of both of these shows need to grow up. It's one thing to have a debate about whose show is better. But it's moronic when it resorts to violence, hacking fan websites, etc.

Amen.

Anyone who says crap like, "Howard is no longer funny" is likely A.) Someone who has not heard his show on Sirius or B.) An O&A troll.
I'm one of those who you refer to.

A.) True, I have not heard his show on Sirius.
B.) Someone can have a differing opinion without being a troll.

My comments were always about the last 5 years of Stern on FM radio. If he is funnier now that he's on satellite, good for all of you who continue to listen.

I doubt Howard would give that guy the time of day. It was funny though. O&A let the guy talk knowing that he planned on just screaming some insult and being on his way, but they put him on the air and he had nothing.

Listening to the full audio, I honestly believe the punk was looking for them to jump him. After he said one of his comments he said "come on hit me" and then later after they revealed he had nothing he throws O&A's producer to the wall, falsely claiming he spit on him and then the two security guys tackled him to the ground.

Howard's show is now available online at sirius.com. I'm listening to it at work right now.

Any Sirius subscriber should download the Yahoo widget for Sirius. It's much better than the version on the Sirius website. Go here (http://www.neoscrib.com/index.php?page=sirius) for the download.

You also will need the Yahoo Widget engine from the same site. It really rocks!

Howard 2nd highest paid celeb?

http://www.allheadlinenews.com/articles/7004532340

"Los Angeles, CA (AHN) - A recent edition of Forbes magazine cites movie director Steven Spielberg as the highest earning celebrity in the world for 2005.
The magazine said the man behind successful movies like "ET," "Jurassic Park" series and the "Raiders of the Lost Ark" series grossed $229.3 million in 2005 or about $436 per minutes.


He is followed by DJ Howard Stern who earned $208 million during the same year. George Lucas of the "Star Wars' fame, was third on the list with $162 million, according to the magazine."

New York Post Fires John Mainelli

Howard Stern's words may not carry the same weight now that he's on satellite radio, but he's still got enough juice to get a pesky critic fired. John Mainelli, the New York Post writer who irked Stern by reporting a rumor that he would return to terrestrial radio with his tail between his legs on Tuesday, has left the paper after receiving an ultimatum from editor in chief Col Allan.

Don't mess with the King of All Media. :lol:

And honestly I don't see what the big deal is, because I am not surprised. This is part of the reason why I am not liking the rest of Howard's channels, like the Friday Show and The Wrap-Up Show and Howard News.

The round the clock coverage and reaction to Artie's revelation is just flat out ridiculous. They are making everything so dramatic saying how "everyone in the back was speechless" and stuff like that. I am beginning to hate it, though I do like the regular show still.

But honestly who cares that much about Howard that they need to listen to the Howard News and Wrap show and five hours of the actual show, besides High Pitch Eric.

Mainelli went on O&A today, crying about Howard, and still spreading those dumb rumors. He was also sucking up to O&A (which he has made a career out of, some how.) It was really pathetic. What did he expect to happen? The two highlights of his career are that he works for a terrestrial radio company, and he was a "consultant" for O&A. So of course when he starts making claims about a satellite radio host, who O&A hate, they will be questioned. Not only were they false, but he was also forced to resign because of it. It's no one's fault but his own that he had to resign.

Rumor is he might try and sue Steve Langford, Howard 100 News reporter who brought up on the air that Mainelli works for a terrestrial radio company. Good luck, John. You're the one in the wrong here. Going on O&A to whine and then suing Langford just makes you look like an even bigger idiot.

PeteRFNY
09-23-06, 05:12 PM
Wow. Ha. Mainelli deserves it for making crap up.

All Mainelli did was talk about something that had already been written earlier in industry newsletter Radio Today and report it in his column. For that, he has lost his job. Mainelli didn't make up squat. This is neither new NOR news - just one reporter sharing something the general public would not have normally seen (funny, that Stern didn't go after Radio Today because he NEEDS them). FWIW, the rumors of Stern returning to terrestrial radio have been rampant for months.

This whole episode is nothing new. Stern goes freaking bonkers over anything that can remotely be seen as "negative" written about him, and as soon as he see gets wind of it, he calls out the sycophant Howard Army to discredit the person. He did the same thing to CBNC reporter Meilssa Francis after she did a similar report. Unlike the Post, CBNC had the balls to stand behind their reporter.

The "bombshell" news that Mainelli is also a radio consultant (as reported on the super-non-biased Sirius Howard News channel, or whatever the eff it is) that led to The Post letting him go isn't news either. Mainelli's talked about it in the past. Most industry articles are written by people that work in their respective indistries. So what? Would anyone read an article about brain surgery that was written by a grocery bagger? Of course not.

The Post simply bought into the "conflict of interest" BS being propgated by the Stern machine and rather than seeing it for what it was, blew it all out of proportion. This is typical of how things seem to get done these days, which is pretty pathetic.

There was a time when Howard would have had Mainelli on his show and had some give-and-take with him, asking Mainelli to explain himself, defending his own positions, etc., which would have made for great radio. Of course, that was when Howard was genuinely creative.

The fact that Stern could get somebody fired for writing something that does not service him orally - and is actually nothing more that a "share" of a previous story - is effing ponderous. Howard will blather on and on about "free speech" - until the speech is something he doesn't like. Then he sends out the troops to bring the offender down.

Two faces, one mouth.

What an industry radio has become. No wonder I'm ready to go work at a Dunkin Donuts.

AMYanks
09-23-06, 06:35 PM
Mainelli talked about something reported by Inside Radio. You know who owns Inside Radio? Yep. Clear Channel. So here we have two sources, the only two sources talking about this rumor (the rumor hasn't been "rampant" at all, the only other time it was mentioned was when O&A went to CBS Radio, and Howard said at the time that he would never, ever return,) and they both work for terrestrial radio, both with close ties to some of Stern's biggest rivals. Stern talked about the rumor reported by Inside Radio first, but was more upset at what Mainelli printed. Making things up, like Stern's guest list drying up, Stern losing popularity as an internet search term (even though it's false, it is funny that someone would actually print this as a way to bash Howard,) etc. Stern should be upset with Mainelli. Not only does Mainelli make things up in his article, and work for terrestrial radio, but he is most famous for being a major consultant to O&A and Rush Limbaugh. Yeah, there's no agenda on his part.

I guess Howard only recently lost his creativity, as he had someone on his show just last week who was bashing him in an article. But that guy didn't have any ties to terrestrial radio, nor was he at one time a consultant to Limbaugh and O&A, like Mainelli. So of course, that guy wasn't worried about coming on the show. Stern's always enjoyed having his bashers come on the air to talk, he's done it more than once on SIRIUS, but Mainelli wasn't coming on his show. He would have been stupid to come on, given his history.

I like how Mainelli says he would "always excuse himself from stories that might involve a conflict of interest." Interesting. John Mainelli, who works for terrestrial radio, and is most famous for his consulting jobs with Rush Limbaugh and Opie and Anthony, is going to write an article about satellite radio's Howard Stern... with a Clear Channel owned company's rumor as his only source.

Seems like he should've excused himself from this one.

PeteRFNY
09-24-06, 12:30 AM
Again, there was nothing in the Mainelli article that has not been printed or talked about elsewhere. Similar reports to the ones written in Inside Radio have been echoed in Talkers, Radio Today, various radio discussion forums and several other "industry publications". For a non-rampant rumor, it sure was all anyone wanted to talk about at the NAB convention.

Conventional thinking - and rightly so - is that Howard could only benefit from taking an O&A-type deal, and the general buzz is that it just a matter of "who" and "when". Whether that is true or not, only Howard knows. But I also remember Howard on WNBC saying, "I'll never do morning radio like that Imus", or words to that effect. So will be "never" go back to terrestrial radio? As the James Bond title suggests, it would behoove Howard to "Never Say Never Again".

MY problem is with Howard's propensity for using and playing the bully card. As I pointed out in my previous post, this has become the standard reactionary procedure for Stern and his followers. If you've never seen his attack on CNBC's Melissa Francis, where he played the victim to the point of shamelessly invoking 9/11 (a new low for Stern), I did a Google search and found it on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-fPDb7aATk). Howard's paranoia has started bordering on pathetic. Everyone's out to "get" Howard. First it was the FCC, now it's the entire world, apparently.

When people complained about what Howard had to say, he moved. When Howard doesn't like what other people have to say, he moves them.

Yes Howard, we know...Inside Radio is published by Clear Channel. I know, there was a second shooter behind the grassy knoll being signalled by umbrella man. I've seen Inside Radio badmouth their OWN shows, too. It's a RADIO Newsletter. It must kill you that you can't get the whole Inside Radio newsletter fired, too.

AMYanks
09-24-06, 03:19 AM
I'm not sure what's so bad about his 9/11 reference, although if you're just going by how CNBC edited it to look, then I guess you could form that opinion. Having heard it live that day, he played the countless audio clips of hers, where she really rips into his entire audience, classifying everyone that listens to him as a jerk, or an idiot, or someone who does nothing with their life. Of course, CNBC doesn't put that into the piece. I don't blame Stern for being pissed about her totally blasting everyone in his audience. Perhaps the 9/11 reference was a little much, but given how insulting she was towards everyone who listens to his show, and the time he spent explaining himself before and after that comment was made, I don't see the problem with it. Sadly, it comes off as claseless because of CNBC's editing.

Martling career takes a Stern for the better

Howard Stern is set for a reunion - of sorts - with his former sidekick Jackie (the Joke Man) Martling.

Insiders say Stern will announce on his show next week that Martling has scored his own program on Sirius, the satellite radio network Stern has called home since January.

"Martling's show will debut mid-October," says a source.

Stern and Martling parted ways on strained terms after 15 years in 2001, when the Joke Man couldn't reach a contract agreement with their mutual employer.

Martling said through his rep he has "no news" about a new radio show just yet.

I hope Jackie stops by the show once in a while. And, look at it this way, once Artie dies of an OD, Jackie will only be a few doors down. ;)

As far as the "rumors" about Stern returing to terrestrial radio I don't see why he would ever go back. I know that if I was him I wouldn't go back either.

He made $500 million bucks going to Sirius, what could terrestrial radio offer him that could top that? I think if satelitte radio had not exsisted at the time his contract ran up that he probably would have retired because of all the heat being put on him by the FCC (plus he wasn't great to listen too on those last few years on regular radio).

I really see ZERO reason why he would go back. I could see why O&A woud do the split satelite and terrestrial thing, that makes a bit of sense. But it would make NO sense for Howard to do that.

Long-time city radio guy John Mainelli, a former program director at WABC (770 AM), has left the New York Post after the paper told him he would have to give up his radio consulting business. This came right after Mainelli was blasted on Sirius radio by Stern, who vehemently denied Mainelli's report about industry speculation that Stern might be heard on terrestrial radio as well as satellite. Mainelli questioned the timing of the Post's ultimatum, noting he'd been working there eight years and his consulting business had been widely reported before. "I had no New York clients and recused myself from any story where I might have had an interest," said Mainelli. "If anything, I had a reverse conflict of interest, because writing bluntly about radio actually cost me potential clients."

I am sure Howard would rather have the money and freedom to do what he wants rather than the listeners and the hassling from the censors and the FCC. Anyone that listened to Howard's show the last few years on terrestrial could tell he was miserable and it was a terrible show because of it.

He is carefree now and isn't pissing and moaning, like he would do for hours, anymore.

Seems like anytime there is a negative stock report about Sirius or some story how XM has more subsribers, we get several variations of a story that say "Howard Not Doing Well at Sirius" or "Howard's Unhappy at Sirius".

Exactly.

The other thing you have to take into consideration that a lot of people tuning into Stern were not really fans, so it's not surprising that not everyone followed him.

Remember in Stern's movie where they talked about how the people who did not like him tuned in more? I bet quite a few people tuning in when he was on terrestrial radio were the same, so it's not shocking that these types of people did not want to spend the money to hear him.

Not sure about the specifics of his deal, but if he can keep the 500 million AND be heard on both, then that would be something. O&A are different.

I don't think Stern has to leave Sirius to go back on terrestrial. XM is receiving free publicity from O&A being on CBS. If Stern decided to do something similiar (3 hours terrestrial, 2 hours Sirius) Sirius would also be beneficiaries because at 9 AM or whenever the changeover is, those listening to Stern on AM/FM would be leaving the movie in the middle so to speak if they didn't have Sirius. And they would also know they could get un-edited Howard there as well.

This sitcom is stoopid.

I thought it was kind of "eh." Beth was kind of funny, and I laughed at Ralph and the caller calling Howard at the end, but overall I did not think it was that great.

That sucks. You're most likely correct as to why you can't get him.

Sirius' big weak point is their technology. They tend to roll things out without being ready.

I've had my Stiletto 100 for 3 weeks now and no home or car kit will be available until Nov 3. Enjoying my radio a lot, but sure could use a car kit.

I thought the sitcom was funny. Beth and Allison were both really funny. Howard taking callers right before he banged Beth was great (Norm: "Hey Artie, I f**ked Dana in the ass!" :lol: ), and just hearing Dice's voice as he tried to act serious had me laughing.

Liked the sitcom also. It was almost like a roast of everyone on the show.

I really liked The Bitter Half. The only section of the show I did not like was the Robin bit. Not really funny and Robin is the worst actress ever.


I missed the Pete Townshend stuff, what were they saying to make him skip the interview?

Missed that also. All I heard was some hot button issue was mentioned before he came on and that's what killed his appearance.

They had said that in the notes for the interview with Townshend, there was mention of the child porn charges, but NO mention NOT to talk about them.

The thing was, they mentioned the charges while talking just after a break, but I don't remember hearing that they were going to ask him about the charges. It seemed to me that they knew not to ask question about that. Pete and his wife were in London listening and that's when they walked out.

And after Howard heard that Pete's wife had written one of the new Who songs, he called her Yoko :lol:

I think it's funny that he bailed. They were talking about it later in the Show. Robin was upset that she caused them to walk out.

Best part was Fred arguing with Roger Daltry, and then Sour Shoes calling in after, doing his Pete Townshend impression. Great stuff.
