Stern heading for satellite radio
Wednesday, October 06, 2004
NEW YORK, NY -- Howard Stern is saying goodbye to the FCC and broadcast radio.
The syndicated shock jock announced this morning that he has signed a five-year deal with Sirius Satellite Radio where he'll oversee programming on three of the service's channels and host his own morning show. He's expected to bring most or all of the cast of characters on his current show with him.
The switch will happen in January 2006 after Stern completes the 15 months remaining on his existing contract with Infinity Broadcasting which syndicates the show to over 40 markets including Syracuse where his morning show airs on 95X (WAQX).
