Howard Stern Vs. SiriusXM Radio

howard stern vs siriusxm radio

Looks like Howard Stern is NOT happy with SiriusXM right now.

Stern's prod company and manager are filing a lawsuit against SiriusXm Radio, which claims that Howard "was bilked out of stock awards SiriusXM promised him." They are seeking unspecified damages.

As mentioned in the lawsuit, Howard was promised a share "in any success that the company achieved," but Howard's team is claiming that he didn't receive further stock bonuses after Sirius acquired XM, and the 20 million subscribers who came along with it.

In the lawsuit, Team Howard wrote the following:

"Sirius needed Stern more than Stern needed Sirius."

Ha! We'd have to agree with that.

Hopefully they can work everything out. If we were SiriusXM, we wouldn't want to piss off Howard. If he were gone, we're sure that TONS of subscribers would leave along with him.

Who do U side with? Team Howard or Team SiriusXM?

    I subscribed to SiriusXm to hear the Oprah channel. I tried to listen to Howard but when he started with the bathroom humour I couldn't take it anymore.

    XM didn't have 20 million subscribers, that's the total number of subscribers of the merged companies. The merger was necessary because neother company could survive on their own. Considering his more than generous salary and the fact that SiriusXM's stock had tanked and was on the verge of filing bankruptcy not too long ago I'd say he HAS shared in the success of the company.

    Howard is in my car, my husband's car, our home and on my phone. I listen to both his channels throughout the day. If Howard wasn't there, I would not be a subscriber.
