Howard Stern signs a new deal with Sirius

Howard Stern and SiriusXM have announced a new agreement under which Stern will continue to produce and host The Howard Stern Show for SiriusXM for the next five years, and the Howard Stern archive of audio and video will continue to be licensed to SiriusXM for an additional seven years.
Stern said, “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. And despite the naysayers and the ridicule, we have persevered, and are thriving.”
