Howard Stern Extends Agreement with SiriusXM

Howard Stern and SiriusXM Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: SIRI) have agreed to produce and host The Howard Stern Show exclusively for SiriusXM for the next five years as the show will continue to be licensed to SiriusXM for an additional seven years.  Stern reported this first on his show this morning.  As one of the best interviewers in the business, Howard’s interviews have gained more traction since broadcasting from home during the coronavirus pandemic. “Fifteen years ago, I joined SiriusXM, a fledgling group of broadcasters.  I had been in a toxic relationship with terrestrial radio.  And no matter how well I treated the medium, no matter how successful I made them, they abused me.  Going to SiriusXM liberated me.  I felt like Tina Turner freeing myself from Ike,” said Stern.  “And despite the naysayers and the ridicule, we have persevered, and are thriving.  I’ve been proven right about satellite radio over and over again.  With this contract renewal, I can’t wait to see what else I’ll be right about.  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.”

“I would like to thank my incredible crew that I work with every morning and of course the talented Robin Quivers,” said Stern.  “Robin, we make a great team.  Like Sonny and Cher, Captain and Tennille, Charles Manson and Squeaky Fromme, we continue our great friendship.  I look forward to more laughs and good times.  As a proud member of Bachelor Nation I say…Robin, will you accept my rose and dare I say, should you forgo your individual room, will you join me in the fantasy suite?”

Stern added: “I am honored to be a part of the greatest content provider in media today.  SiriusXM, I love you and I’m thrilled to continue our journey together.  If you haven’t listened to this wonderful service filled with music, talk, sports and just about anything you could want, please check it out.  The SiriusXM app continues to grow and you will enjoy all of the Howard Stern and SiriusXM video content on there.  Our next five years together will be incredible.  Join the party.”
