Stern: I'm "Never Going Back" To Terrestrial Radio
May 10, 2006 at 8:50 AM (PT)
HOWARD STERN did a little bit of spin control on WEDNESDAY's show, striking down the media chatter that he ignited himself with comments about possible deals to return to terrestrial radio.
Saying that three broadcast groups have approached him with deals, STERN told his SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO audience WEDNESDAY that "I would throw up if I had to go back. I'm never going back" to terrestrial radio. STERN, in an on-air interview with AP, said he would not return to terrestrial radio "for any reason," citing censorship as the reason for his move to satellite. STERN moved to SIRIUS after inking a $500 million, 5 year deal.
I would throw up if I had to go back
Well, Maybe A Terrestrial Cameo Is OK!
However, STERN and his crew DID make a brief terrestrial radio appearance this morning on CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WIOQ (Q102)/PHILADELPHIA, as the first guests for new Q102 morning host BOOKER. STERN and BOOKER previously shared the same terrestrial frequency in NEW YORK at (then) CBS Alternative WXRK.
