HOWARD STERN's new schedule is set to begin MAY 2nd, with the "The King Of All Media" cutting back his live show to three days a week every other week. THE EXAMINER notes, "When STERN announced his new five-year contract with SIRIUS XM, he warned fans that it would come with a pared back schedule. While the terms of STERN's new contract are unknown, analysts estimate STERN is taking in about $20 million a year less than he earned in his original 2006 contract with SIRIUS XM."
"I don't want to hear any nonsense about it," STERN said on the air, "because the option was either leave or work a few less days and I thought it would be better to stay on the air. Okay? Look, I know, listen, everyone would rather have the show every day five days a week. I figured it was better if we showed up three days a week, sometimes four days a week or whatever, be here for you, touch base and do a good show."
