Howard Stern Extends Partnership with SiriusXM Radio
Howard Stern‘s radio show will live on.
The shock-job’s contract was set to expire at the end of December, but Stern revealed that he has decided extended his partnership with SiriusXM for the next five-years.
Stern announced, “This morning I am very very pleased to announce and excited to announce that we’ll be here for the next five years. As a broadcaster, it does not get better than working at Sirius XM, and I’m truly excited for the future with this great company. I happen to think that its best days are ahead. So, if you are not listening to Sirius XM and The Howard Stern Show, then you are really more like a zombie, a rotting corpse monster, living half a life, deadened and blackened inside. It’s as if you were still watching black-and-white television while shopping in actual stores on your way to the post office to fax a memo.”
SiriusXM released their own statement about the extended deal. The company shared, “This is part of a broader 12-year agreement, under which legendary broadcaster Stern will continue to produce and host The Howard Stern Show on Sirius XM for the next five years. The deal includes plans for SiriusXM to launch its first venture into video programming with Stern. Also, this will include video of The Howard Stern Show as well as the Howard Stern archives and special programming.”
