Howard SternSirius Satellite Radio after dominating terrestrial radio for a generation. In many ways the show is even better, as Howard doesn't have to battle the infantile rules of the FCC, but it's also a shame that fewer people can listen to his show.
Howard bolted for Sirius after facing the biggest battle of his illustrious career as Congress, the FCC and the holier-than-thou Bush Administration went ape-shit over the Janet Jackson nipple fiasco. Has the whole country gone crazy? Cialus talks about four-hour erections on their commercials during the Super Bowl and nobody complains, yet one bare nipple sends the politicians into a frenzy. Do you think that the drug industry's millions of dollars of campaign contributions has anything to do with their reaction?
In that crazed atmosphere, the far right and the thought police decided to go after our man Howard Stern again, and to his credit Howard fought back. He savaged Clear Channel, Michael Powell and Bush on the air day after day. In the meantime, his show stayed as funny as ever, even with the annoying bleeps. Now we can enjoy him in all his uncensored glory.
Howard has continued to build his media empire with his expansion online with Howard TV, but it remains to be seen how lobg he will stay at Sirius. Don't expect him to return to traditional radio, but he might decide to move on to other challenges.

Howard on the Big Screen
howard Stern surprised Hollywood with an excellent film, "Private Parts," based on his best-selling book. It was a success with critics and at the box office. You would think he would have made a new film by now, but I guess he's too busy making millions of bucks with his Sirius deal.
We hope Howard decides to stay with Sirius. He's great doing other things as well, but he's the best there is on the radio. His fans would be crushed if he ended his show. We will be tracking the latest developments with Howard Stern and his career on our Bullz-Eye Blog.
From the Mouth of Howard Stern
"I'm sickened by all religions. Religion has divided people. I don't think there's any difference between the pope wearing a large hat and parading around with a smoking purse and an African painting his face white and praying to a rock."
"I'm for legalizing marijuana. Why pick on those drugs? Valium is legal. You just go to a doctor and get it and overdose on it - what's the difference? Prozac, all that stuff, so why not marijuana? Who cares? It's something that grows out of the ground - why not? Go smoke a head of cabbage. I don't care what you smoke."
"I still feel like I gotta prove something. There are a lot of people hoping I fail. But I like that. I need to be hated."
