King of All Media Set To Go Mobile
NEW YORK, N.Y.--- Reinforcing his title as King of all Media, Howard Stern announced his show is about to go mobile. Starting next year fans will be able to hear ‘The Howard Stern Show' directly on their mobile devices.
During Thursday’s radio broadcast, Stern said he was excited that his show will be heard on several mobile devices.
As part of his five year deal with SiriusXM Stern said “Access to my show on mobile devices will open up additional opportunities for my fans to hear me, wherever they are."
SIRIUS XM Chief, Mel Karmazin said, "Our agreement is good news on all fronts -- it is good for SIRIUS XM subscribers and good for SIRIUS XM stockholders. Howard forever changed radio and was instrumental in putting SIRIUS on the map when he first launched on satellite radio. He is one of the few 'one-name' entertainers in the country and our 20 million subscribers are lucky to have him."
Adding, "Howard is a great talent, and we are thrilled that he will continue to provoke, engage and entertain on SIRIUS XM.
During Thursday’s often tense and suspenseful announcement, Stern said, "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."
