Are You Sirius? Howard Stern Re-Signs for 5 Years with Sirius Radio and Attacks Mobile
“Howard’s new contract will run through December 31, 2015. Under the terms of the new contract, SIRIUS XM will now have the right to transmit Howard’s exclusive programming to mobile devices. Additional terms of the contract will not be disclosed.”
“On my first day in satellite radio SIRIUS had approximately 600,000 subscribers. Today, the two companies have 20 million; and, in my view, we have just scratched the surface of how many people will get on board,” said Howard Stern. “I am especially excited that my show will now be heard through SIRIUS XM on mobile devices. Access to my show on mobile devices will open up additional opportunities for my fans to hear me wherever they are.”
The announcement puts to rest silly rumors that Stern would defect to Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). Now the shock jock can follow you anywhere you want to take him.
