Do you people not understand what he brought to the table. Millions of subscribers paying $12/mth to listen to him. Where will they be if he leaves? They will not be around very long. Like him or not he is a good business decission that will keep Sirius / XM above ground. I don't think they can pay him the $100 million a year but they will have to pay him. They have NO choice.

Let's call this what it is ...
First of all, Howard has not "threatened to quit". His contact is up next year, and 30 years of getting up at 3:30am every day to do his show is starting to get exhausting. He has talked of retiring for a few years now, so why is this all of a sudden mis-reported as "news".

10NBC is owned by a highly conservative Hubbard Broadcasting. According to my research "Hubbard Broadcasting is known for its outspoken support of conservative politicians and the Republican Party of Minnesota". I guess you can see where their interests lie.

And to Bye Loser in Webster, I am a professional woman who has been a Stern fan for 12 years. If you really knew what he was about, you would think differently. I am tired of you all assuming you know what the show is about. I bet none of you have ever listened. The show has a lot of intelligent dialogue about current events, and excellent celebrity interviews. Robin, his co-host is a former Air Force Nurse with a degree in Communications. She gives the show great female balance, while still not taking herself too seriously.

Also, Howard has raised 3 highly successful daughters. The youngest is 17, and the oldest is 25. One of his daughters is bilingual in Spanish after studying abroad in Spain for quite some time.

So, Bye Loser, since you are a "woman with a brain", why don't you look into what he is really like before you make a mis-informed and ignorant comment.

Baba-booey forever!

It's quite disturbing how obviously "obsessed" you are with him and the show. Way too much information!

I am wondering where they got the report from, being that howard is on vacation. He couldn't have said it today. But he has talked retirement for ages. At least he knows when to leave not like Weeze, he is the biggest hasbeen in Rochester that no one cares about. I wish the newscaster in Rochester would threaten to quit, cause all the news stations are soo aweful

Lisa,

your post reminds me of Glen Close in Fatal Attraction. Disillusioned and very scary.

Turn off the sat radio, come up for a breath of fresh air, and contribute something positive to society.

"30 years of getting up at 3:30am every day to do his show is starting to get exhausting" Boo Hoo he has to get up for work 5 days a week like we all do. He's tired because he stays up too late pounding his bologna.

Who cares? The jerk isn't worth a fraction of what he makes. Maybe he can sell some of his "Body Parts" to make ends meet.
