A Not-So-Stern Schedule...

Excerpted from Taylor On Radio:
Howard Stern's new cover-of-Rolling Stone interview has him saying this – “Right now my schedule is pretty much the same as it’s always been”, which is the live morning-drive shift on Monday through Thursday. Then Friday off. But he wants more – more time off. Stern tells interviewer Neil Strauss “…as time rolls on, I’ll probably do about three shows a week.” Will it matter to Stern’s fans, or affect Sirius XM subscriptions? Probably not much.  Does the shrinking number of workdays mean Stern’s getting less money under his new five-year contract? Maybe not. Maybe Mel Karmazin gave a little in the negotiations in terms of airtime, while keeping Stern’s pay about the same.
