Howard Stern On iTunes?

| Filed under: Howard SternBusiness Blitz

Wouldn't that be a Sirius kick in the ass to XM Radio!

Sources are reporting that Howard Stern maybe looking for a new home for his shock jock radio show come the new year. For the better part of the past year, Sirius XM Radio has been dragging it's feet in getting a new contract up and running for Howard. With no word if Howard will return to the station come January, people are starting to consider canceling their subscriptions to see where he might go next.

And that might be straight to your iPod.

One rumor is that Apple is offering the self-proclaimed "King of All Media" a $600 million deal to start broadcasting on iTunes. It's a sweet deal for Howard, but what will it do to Apple's reputation? They've always been hip and cool in a family-friendly sort of way. Seems out of character to bring him into the fold.

Still, it would certainly be a great way for Howard to stick it Sirius!

Where would U rather get your Stern fix from - Sirius or iTunes?

    I canceled my subscription because of Howard "King of All Dirty Old Perverts" Stern. If he leaves, I might subscribe again.

    We have invested 5 years in monthly subscription fees and satellite equipment to listen to Howard, it would be a big slap in the face for him to leave Sirius XM and try to force us to pay more money to listen to him every day. I am a loyal follower but I think a move to iTunes would cause him to lose a lot of listeners, myself included.

    I never considered Apple hip and cool in a family sort of way. I found that their customer service is thoughtless, ill-managed and with no concern with cutover satisfaction, rather a bunch of posers trying to lock cool and think they are above anything else.

    I don't beleive for one minute Howard does not know what he is doing. It's bullshit! I do beleive however that Sirius in no way was going to let Howard tell everyone is leaving BC that will screw up there Holiday sales.

    600 million? ….What does this man do exactly? He better be curing cancer or something for that money.

    his schtick is so tired it's pathetic. plus, going to Sirius was a great financial move for Howard, but a shitty business one since their audience at the time was much smaller, but now things have changed and going to iTunes would be quite a coup for all involved. that said, I still think he's an overpaid moron -

    This would be amazing.. Sirus & XM have the worst customer service, and the satellite is old hammered technology.. I hate when it cuts our going under bridges, trees, and for no reason..

    A move to Itunes would be great!! Iphone, Ipod, Ipad, Computer, wifi, 3G, 4G.. I think am am going to get to excited about this!! Love you Stern!! Apple support is amazing too!!!



  8. 8

    i will be canceling if he leaves Satellite, but not sure how Itunes would work. I just want to listen to howard in my car.

    And Ben, too bad you feel that way? Do you not have cable because they have porn channels? Kind of a bit extreme.

    Only reason I subscribe to Sirius is for Howard. If he has to leave because Sirius keeps dragging its feet, I leave, and will follow him wherever he winds up, most probably.

    I think it's a great idea…fuck Apple's reputation…it's not going to make a difference for them.

    As for Howard, iTunes in EVERYWHERE, he'll quadruple his listeners.

    Sure, it worked out great for sirius but he's made a them shit ton of money and if they can't come to a satisfying agreement..he should leave. In the end, money talks and bullshit walks.



  11. 11

    I'LL FOLLOW THEN WHEREEVER THE SHOW GOES I **LOVE THEM ALL!!! :-)



  12. 12

    I LUV HOWARD - I'LL FOLLOW U WHERE EVER U GO….

    FREE SPEECH IS IN THE HOUSE!!!!!



  13. 13

    currently i'm listening to robin's news on youtube. getting my fix



  14. 14

    Sterns' act is getting old. I don't think anyone thinks he's worth $6 million. Let alone 600 million. Besides how much money does this guy need anyway. He's not going to use it to benefit charity, except maybe himself. You'll notice that of the great philanthropists, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet etc., none are jewish.



  15. 15

    Clearly, no one listened to the show today because this is only a rumor. He did talk about it but said there wasn't any type of deal on the table.

    The History of Howard S. and Sirius XM is in a new documentary. When I saw the movie : Stock Shock-The Short Selling of the American Dream, it gave me the inside story on Sirius xm market manipulation and saved me a bunch of money. That's called education and free press and you won't find it in mainstream news. I recommend you protect yourself and buy the "Stock Shock" DVD (cheaper at the movie site www.stockshockmovie.com) and watch, learn and pass it along.



  17. 17

    That would be awesome!



  18. 18

    I followed hm the Sirius XM and will follow him to Itunes or where ever he goes to, make no difference, I'm a Howard Stern fan, totally loyal and will go with him!



  19. 19

    I'm going where he's going.



  20. 20

    Sirius!!!

    I hate when it cuts our going under bridges, trees, and for no reason..

    I paid for a Sirius lifetime subscription a few years back just to listen to Howard. I'll be bummed if he leaves now. How would normal people be able to pick up iTunes in their cars in the morning?



  23. 23

    I will follow Howard ANYWHERE he goes. I would pay to listen to him broadcast from his apartment, pay to listen to a recording of him. He is a genius and will go down in history as getting the biggest bum rap of any celebrity in our time. Most people who hate him have not even listened to him, they are lemmings and are unable to form an opinion on their own. He is an intelligent man who entertains the masses and deserves whatever amount of money they offer…bottom line is this: it is smart business to work a deal with him, he puts money in the pockets.

    Hampton Howie should just call it quits since he's been mailing it in for years.He has that cackling bitch,the idiot that pushes buttons,and the idiot producer that falls asleep during a live show.The best person on the show was Artie and he tried to kill himself…this should tell you what this show has evolved into

    Listen to OPIE&ANTHONY…MUCH BETTER SHOW WITH ACTUAL TALENTED PEOPLE

    Stern is not signing with Apple… yet.

    It's no coincidence that the last show is December 16th, the day all of us here on the show go on vacation until the end of the year, and the fact that the 20 million subscriber celebration concert at the Apollo Theater is the very same night on December 16th. Howard will announce his re-signing with Sirius / XM on stage that night.

    Let the show begin!
