Howard Stern, Sirius Deny Return To Terrestrial Radio
September 19, 2006

Reacting to a New York Post article that cites a radio industry web site report about rumors of his return to terrestrial radio, Howard Stern has once again denied that such an occurrence will happen. Stern maintains that he is perfectly happy at Sirius Satellite Radio, stating, "This is a new phase in my career. I'm taking my celebrity. I'm taking what I did for 25 years and I'm bringing my audience over to a new medium... I've been brought into a new company to bring people over and be a front man for an entire industry."

Stern also said that "going back to terrestrial radio would be the biggest mistake and biggest fuck you to the people who have come here with me... I left terrestrial radio voluntarily. I loved leaving it. It was the greatest send-off." He continued, "[Radio] is a weird industry. It's an industry I built. I built it from the ground floor up and my history is already written. I moved to satellite and millions followed. And it will get bigger and bigger and bigger. I'm in a whole different universe. I'm not interested in going back to terrestrial radio. I don't know how many times I have to deny it."

Sirius is backing up its star's statements. Patrick Reilly, a spokesperson for the satcaster, told Reuters, "There has never been any discussion of Howard Stern in any way, shape, or form being anything but exclusive to Sirius. Published reports suggesting otherwise are wrong."

Stern recently claimed that he is "the victim of a smear campaign" by terrestrial radio that is trying to "discredit" his position at Sirius and again lodged those accusations saying that XM Satellite Radio and the National Association Of Broadcasters have hired publicists to float rumors such as his return to terrestrial radio out to the public.
