The mainstream media isn’t giving us any credit, but Tabloid Baby’s insistence and evidence that Howard Stern will soon syndicate his private pay-radio show on “terrestrial free radio” is causing shockwaves within the satellite radio company he fled to earlier this year.
We can't hear Howard, but his Sirius Satellite Radio company heard us. This afternoon, they said we're "wrong."
The statement came after the story we posted on Sunday about the failure of Stern sidekick Artie Lange's new movie, was picked up today-- without attribution-- by our friends at the New York Post, then posted on the Drudge Report, the cheat sheet for lazy journalists in all media.
"There has never been any discussion of Howard Stern in any way, shape, or form being anything but exclusive to Sirius," Patrick Reilly said.
Let’s not confuse the issue here, which is pretty simple and doesn't change Stern's newfound "freedom" to say swear words when he can’t think of anything funny to say:
We never said he was giving up his satellite deal.
We’ve said all along that Howard Stern will continue doing the same old show for his small paying audience on Sirius, but that Sirius will soon begin to syndicate censored portions to free FM radio— so everyone can hear him and he will be relevant and important again.
Because forget radio-- Howard Stern is no longer on the radar!
