Howard Stern Inks 5-Year Deal to Remain at SiriusXM

“SiriusXM has inked Howard Stern to a brand new five-year deal. “

SiriusXM inked Howard Stern to a brand new five-year deal. The deal was announced on Tuesday during Stern’s show.

“Fifteen years ago, I joined SiriusXM, a fledgling group of broadcasters. I had been in a toxic relationship with terrestrial radio,” Stern said. “Going to SiriusXM liberated me. I felt like Tina Turner freeing myself from Ike.”

The 66-year-old “King of All Media” is working under a deal that expires at the end of the year. His current deal is estimated to be worth $100 million a year. “I would like to thank my incredible crew that I work with every morning and of course the talented Robin Quivers. Robin, we make a great team.”

Jim Meyer, who is stepping down as CEO to fill the vice chairman role, said that he has been “really clear” that “I want Howard Stern to be on SiriusXM for as long as Howard wants to work.”

“With this contract renewal, I can’t wait to see what else I’ll be right about,” said Stern. “Certainly, I have a lot more to say about Metamucil crackers and stepmom porn. Plus, now that I can work from home, I simply don’t have an excuse to quit.”

Credit Suisse analyst Brian Russo said in a recent report that an estimated 15 percent of Stern listeners could cancel their SiriusXM subscriptions if he left the company, “implying a potential subscriber loss of 2.7 million.”

Nationally syndicated radio host Dana Loesch criticized “The View’s” Alyssa Farah Griffin for critical comments she made about right-leaning cable news channel One America News Network (OAN) during a segment on MSNBC.

Farah Griffin was discussing the raid on former President Donald Trump’s residence. Loesch played a soundbite, identifying Farah Griffin as one of the new conservative commentators who recently joined “The View.” 

“One thing I will note is this, the narrative that you are going to hear a lot from the right is that Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information,” Farah Griffin said. I would note that OAN and extremist right networks put out a statement saying this is war.” 

Loesch said Farah Griffin’s rant fell short of being effective, seeing as how she wasn’t addressing people that would likely act out in case of political retribution.

“I don’t think those are the people that she needs to be lecturing,” Loesch said.
Loesch spoke to James Golden aka “Bo Snerdley” who served as Rush Limbaugh’s producer/phone screen for the better part of 30 years. 

Golden said Farah Griffin’s comments were meant to provoke a reaction from “American Patriots.”

Bernie McGuirk: Donald Trump Isn’t a Dictator

“Everything they accuse Donald Trump of, they are,” said Bernie McGuirk.

New York talk personalities “Bernie & Sid,” told their 77 WABC audience Tuesday that the mainstream media rejoiced following a federal raid on the home of former President Donald Trump. 

Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Monday. According to Fox News Digital, agents were looking for confidential government documents that Trump allegedly held onto after leaving office.

“Everything they accuse Donald Trump of, they are,” said Bernie McGuirk. “Back when his supporters were chanting lock Hillary Clinton up, they were calling Trump a dictator.” 

The guys played a montage of soundbites from left-leaning pundits scolding Trump for vowing to use federal resources to investigate claims that Clinton was involved in alleged nefarious acts related to the Russia probe during the 2016 Presidential election. 

“So, he was the dictator?” said McGuirk. “I don’t think so; he never locked her up. Also, CNN had a panel and on the panel was a New York Times reporter suggesting that they (FBI) found paper in the toilet. I mean, come on, give me a break.” 

Rosenburg added that the best way to support Trump during this period of uncertainty is to follow him on Truth Social.
