Good article on the current state of affairs at Stern HQ.
Forget the bitter lawsuit and the FCC—Stern’s got a new empire to conquer
The Howard effect continues.
Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. (SIRI.O: Quote, Profile, Research) on Monday said it recently surpassed 4 million subscribers to its nationwide pay radio service.
Remember local talents Jesse and Gene? Stern played one of their lamer bits, but it is still good (and of course clean, being Canadian radio). Here is their new website.
They got fired and fired, now, they’re doing it their way.
Their site also says that is dying. Sad.
One of my favorite columnists and radio guys also admires Howard.
You have to respect Howard Stern’s financial acumen.
Would you spend hundreds of dollars on radio equipment knowing that the first CRTC complaint will probably result in Howard being yanked from Canada? Not me. Let’s see how long Howard lasts up here.

Howard gave it a mention this morning on his show, but he’s not optimistic he’ll be here long.
Finally, a columnist who understands Howard Stern.
Most interviewers hold back. They want to be liked, want to be polite. Not Howard and the gang.
They pushed. And it didn’t matter how big the star was.
CBC reports that Stern was off to an explosive debut today. I listened to the whole uninterrupted 5 hours – and boy was it great.
Shock jock Howard Stern debuted on satellite radio Monday, tossing off a federally banned expletive and offering up a hearty sampling of phone sex.
How ironic that CBC, a part owner in Sirius Canada, doesn’t notice the irony or seem to even care that not carrying Stern in Canada was a serious mistake.
Sirius, which has partnered with Standard Radio and the CBC for a Canadian satellite radio network, is not carrying Stern’s new program in its initial offering in Canada.
Is there any doubt who helped Sirius reach these heights?

Sorry, Canadians need not apply if interested in Howard.
