    Whether Howard Stern retires from his daily morning show at the end of his contract, or extends it for another couple years, the writing is on the wall—he isn’t going to be doing his show for that much longer.  Two years?  Three years? Five? Any way you look at it, it’s hard to... read on

    The show is on vacation this week, so they’re playing a radio documentary Stern and his team did on his life and career, “The History of Howard Stern, Part 2.”  It may not be compelling to anyone but diehard fans, but it should be.

    At about Minute 12 of my 15 minutes of fame,  Steve Langford of Howard 100 News interviewed me for a story he was doing on this blog.

    Steve has a resonant radio voice. Me, on the... read on

    Not a lot of time to post today, but I do want to end the first week of Serious Stern by thanking everyone whose positive feedback has convinced me I’m not alone in thinking there’s more to Howard Stern than boobs and gas (not that there’s anything wrong with that…).
