Howard Stern Signs New Deal With Sirius Satellite Radio

Howard Stern announced on his show this morning that he has renewed his contract with the company. You know what that means: five more years of “The King of All Media” on Sirius Satellite Radio!

From the Los Angeles Times:

Ending speculation that he was going to take his show to the next frontier — whatever that might be — radio personality Howard Stern said on his morning show Thursday that he had signed a new deal that will keep him with satellite radio broadcaster Sirius XM for five more years.

Stern joined Sirius XM in 2006 in a five-year deal valued at $100 million annually.

From Ad Week:

As part of the new deal, Sirius XM will have the right to transmit Stern’s program to mobile devices. The satellite radio company did not provide any other details of the contract, which runs through Dec. 31, 2015.

“Howard is a great talent, and we are thrilled that he will continue to provoke, engage and entertain on Sirius XM. Our agreement is good news on all fronts—it is good for Sirius XM subscribers and good for Sirius XM stockholders. Howard forever changed radio and was instrumental in putting Sirius on the map, when he first launched on satellite radio. He is one of the few ‘one-name’ entertainers in the country, and our 20 million subscribers are lucky to have him,” said Mel Karmazin, CEO of Sirius XM.

    I like Howard, and put it this way… Really, as long as he has the desire to continue exactly what he’s doing, where else and what better place but Sirius is there to go on Radio for him to be given and enjoy such “Freedoms”. With Sirius now being so big and having cornered the Market with its overall one-of-a-kind and appealing Listening Entertainment, I think Howard knows that he would be a Fool to leave it. (I doubt he would be paid as much either).
