Howard Stern will host his final show under a five-year contract with SiriusXM this Wednesday. Do you listen to his satellite radio show?

His show is better than anything on radio or TV. More people listen to him than watch 98% of TV shows. If you think he is the same guy you heard about in the 90's then you're misinformed. Listen to it for 3 days and you will be a fan. Or don't. Listening to Howard is like playing Chess...you have to be intelligent to really get it.

His compensation really hurt Sirius. I don't think they got their money's worth.

The HS Show is one of the greatest shows of all time in any media. And he is THE greatest interviewer ever, by far.

Howard Stern. There is a website called Google.com you type his name into the interface and websites come up explaining his biography, persona and radio show. Have your Grandkids show you.

No. I would have listened to his show, but we dumped the satellite radio about the time he was getting picked up by Sirius, not that long after XM sold out to Sirius and we found out it just wasn't as good.

I used to listen to him now and again on terrestrial radio but I could only take him in small doses. I much preferred Opie & Anthony

Yikes. You prefer comedy written for the lowest common denominator then?

Would you be referring to O&A or Stern?

No I'm referring to the "comedy on Opie and Anthony" not the unique, exciting interviews Stern gets with the most entertaining people in the world. I'm surprised you got that confused.

Because speech isn't on public radio. On satellite radio you can curse and tackle topics the FCC can't throw fines at you for.

I have great 90s memories listening to Art Bell and Howard Stern on radio. The last years of good talk radio.

Howard Stern will resign another contract. That was one reason why he left AGT because it was too much to do both.

I think he's part of some sort of conspiracy. I mean, he sucks. His show sucks. 5% of he people on this app listen. No one gives a shit about him or his show and he gets paid loads of money. WTF?

Um, if you actually read an entire sentence you'd understand his shows first 5 years is ending. He just got signed up for 5 more with a 50 million dollar contract. How many 50 million dollar contracts have you signed?

No. I used to listen to Howard every morning on terrestrial radio. When he moved to satellite he was virtually dead to me.

There was an awards show sometime back and Howard "flew" across the stage as "Fart Man". Yuck. Too raunchy.

If you're saying Stern isn't still raunchy, you haven't been paying attention.

I'm saying that you're referencing an event that offended you over 20 years ago. It's a bit long to hold on. You didn't reference anything recent. It sounded as though you weren't the one paying attention. And "raunchy" is a subjective determination.

I wasn't expecting to write a book about the things I find raunchy of Howard Stern. I had no idea anyone would care enough to hear my opinion. Thanks for caring so much.

Didn't need a book but a more recent example would have been a better place to start. I'm not ashamed of the fact I care, what's the point of reading other's opinions and taking part in polls if you don't give a shit?

I DO listen sometimes! Certainly not daily, as there's other funny stuff happening in the world, but Stern always, still, makes me LOL. I ALWAYS dig his musical parodies, and NO ONE interviews their guests, or can get their guests to go rogue on ultra-personal topics, like Howard Stern. Also, when he has musical guests on, they sometimes play acoustic versions of their music live in his on-air studio. Those sessions have been excellent. He is certainly NOT for everyone. Fewer people appreciate his chronic fixation with sex, penis size, and begging female guests to sit on the Sybian. I can get past it, 'cuz he's one funny dude. Besides, can someone who's generating a quarter-billion in revenue be ALL bad?!!...
