Howard Stern Makes History

Launches His Show Exclusively On SIRIUS Satellite Radio Monday, January 9, 2006 Stern also reveals programming lineup for his 2 SIRIUS channels

The long-awaited debut of revolutionary radio personality Howard Stern broadcasting exclusively on SIRIUS Satellite Radio (Nasdaq: SIRI) took place today. Stern also announced some of the groundbreaking programming he’s created for his two SIRIUS channels — Howard 100 and Howard 101 — during his debut show.

Stern, who was joined by longtime on-air cohorts Robin Quivers, Fred Norris, Artie Lange and producer Gary Dell’Abate, opened his mic for the first time live on SIRIUS at 6 am ET and PT this morning. The moment was one of the most highly anticipated in the media world since Stern announced 14 months ago that he would be leaving terrestrial radio to broadcast exclusively on SIRIUS.

Starting today, The Howard Stern Show will be broadcast Monday through Friday on SIRIUS channels 100 and 101. The show will be live beginning at 6 am ET on channel 100, and on channel 101 beginning at 6 am PT. The Howard Stern Show runs approximately four hours. Although both channels 100 and 101 carry The Howard Stern Show and Howard 100 News, programs on channel 100 will be more Howard-centric, while the programs on channel 101 will be more entertainment-oriented.

Scott Greenstein, SIRIUS President of Entertainment and Sports, said, “There is no other personality like Howard Stern in the world of entertainment, and he is finally on SIRIUS Satellite Radio where he will be given the freedom and support to create and perform. Today we are seeing just the beginning of this remarkable pioneering force.”

Stern also welcomed controversial, Florida-based radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge as the weekday afternoon host on Howard 101. Bubba can be heard from 4 to 8 pm ET (1 to 5 pm PT) on Howard 101.
