January 13, 2015 at 4:09 AM (PT)
SIRIUSXM CFO DAVID FREAR told the CITI 2015 GLOBAL INTERNET, MEDIA & TELECOMMUNICATIONS CONFERENCE MONDAY (1/12) that talks about a contract extension continue with HOWARD STERN and that "as long as he wants to continue his show, we would love to have his show."
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER reports that FREAR said that STERN tends to wait until "towards the end of his contract" to agree on a new deal, telling analysts that "the best way to know" about progress in STERN's contract talks is "by listening to the show."
Addressing another aspect of the issue, FREAR said that a consideration is what STERN wants to do with his archival content and whether, even if the host decides not to continue the show, he wants to have the library of shows "to continue to perform."
