October 19, 2005 Howard Stern’s channel on Sirius Satellite Radio is heating up with content, progressing from farts to “Howard 100 News.” Today (10/19), Stern’s channel bristled with activity in a news format, rotating different news segments that delve into Stern-related topics and declaring: “This is Howard 100. More Americans listen to Howard 100 News than any other Howard news source in the nation.”
Howard 100 News precedes Thursday (10/20) morning’s debut of Wendy The Retard on Stern’s channel. Howard 100 News reporter Erica Phillips filed updates on the progress of Wendy the Retard’s travel from Florida to New York City for her appearance, which starts at 6 a.m. and runs for the next 28 or so hours.
The most interesting portions of Howard 100 News are segments of Bubba The Love Sponge interviewing Jackie “The Jokeman” Martling. The interview runs the gamut from how Martling met and ended up on Stern’s show to if he would ever go back to working with Howard again in the future. “It would depend on the situation,” said The Jokeman in a vague answer, adding he doesn’t relish the prospect of returning to a 4 a.m. wake-up call, although Howard 100 News reports that "high-level negotiations" are in progress for The Jokeman to return to Stern's “old fashioned radio” program on WXRK (K-Rock)/New York.
Other segments running are an exploration into the gayness between Richard Christy and Sal The Stockbroker, along with Howard 100 GM Mojo Nixon filing different editorial reports. This is the first mention of Nixon being named as GM of Stern’s channel.
Segments involving other Wack Pack members including Daniel Carver, Gary The Retard, Joey Boots and a confrontation between Angry Black and King Of All Blacks are also being rotated on the channel.
A schedule has also been posted to HowardStern.com, with details on segments set to air next Monday (10/24), Tuesday (10/25) and Thursday (10/27).
