There will be no Opie & Anthony like deals coming from Sirius anytime
soon, because the satcaster is not interested in licensing back any of
its exclusive content to terrestrial radio, according to CEO Mel
(From billboardradiomonitor.com http://tinyurl.com/rc4ql)
HOWARD Stern says he's been offered a "major deal" to come back to
regular radio via satellite radio - just like his longtime enemies
Opie & Anthony. "The joke could be on them if I get good and worked up [because] I got
offered a major deal to go back to terrestrial and stay on satellite
at the same time," Stern told his Sirius listeners in comments
replayed and mocked yesterday by "O&A." "Can you imagine if I go across town against them in all those markets
and just kick some a-? That would really be cool," said Stern, who now
broadcasts to about a tenth of his former audience. (http://www.nypost.com/entertainment/63508.htm)
Pretty safe thing for stern to say after Mel already shot the idea
Assuming that there ever WAS a deal offered to Stern in the first place.
Oh, I agree. But stern had to save face and try to appear relevant.
Save face with who? Unlike the Clones Howard is actually doing good at
Sirius and not only did CBS not want Howard to leave they actually
wanted to join in with Howard on the Sirius deal like they did with
other past Howard Projects.
What other Howard Projects?
Lets see his TV shows, DVD, movie, CD. You know as you listen all the
time. Stop trying to play stupid.
You have GOT to be kidding.
Stern's movie and DVD were via Paramount, the CD was via Warner Brothers, and the books Private Parts and Miss America were via Pocket and Regan books, respectively, according to Amazon.com. I don't know if those various entities had anything to do with CBS then, now, or somewhere in between, though I'd say "no" in the case of the movie, CD, and DVD.
With the possible exception of the E! show (I don't know if E! is linked to CBS or not) Stern's had NO projects come out via a CBS outlet since they canned the syndicated HSRS in September 2001! And Son of the Beach was on FX and got cancelled in mid-2002.
CBS was always interested in getting in on Stern's projects outside the radio show?
Pure out-and-out Bull$#!+.
