Howard Stern’s Future at Sirius XM

king of all mediaSirius XM Radio, which is controlled by Liberty Media, would like to keep Howard Stern on the air when his current contract with the company ends, CFO David Frear reiterated on Tuesday.

Speaking at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Telecom and Media Conference, Frear reminded investors that Stern’s contract was coming up at the end of 2015. Last time around, “he signed the contract and said he couldn’t believe he did it again because of how early he has to get up.”

He added, “I do think he loves what he is doing, I think he loves the creative freedom that he gets on the Sirius platform. I think he loves the reach that he gets.”

“As long as Howard wants to work, we’d love to have him on the air.”

Discussing Sirius’ programming lineup, Frear said “there isn’t any piece we are missing” and that “there isn’t anything we wanted to keep that we haven’t kept.”
