Howard Stern’s old rivals ‘Opie & Anthony’ are in the Sirius XM doghouse after releasing what they claim is the official HSS official vacation schedule which shows the King of All Media working only 6 days in July and 9 days in August.
Gregg “Opie” Hughes announced on Wednesday morning’s O&A broadcast that the SXM higher-ups had made it clear that the subject was off-limits from now on. The schedule, which was allegedly found in one of the Sirius XM offices, shows the Howard Stern Show broadcasting live for a total of 140 days in 2011.
Tuesday, Hughes told listeners:
“They really don’t like us talking about the fact that he’s only working 6 days in July and 9 days in August…They REALLY don’t want us talking about that…We might want to show you a schedule we came upon. But honestly we’re NOT supposed to talk about that. That’s not good for the company–the King working 6 days in July.”
Stern’s light summer schedule isn’t the only reason that the calendar is so controversial. HSS fans have been up in arms since Stern began an alternating 3 and 4 day weeks back in May 2011. O&A’s leaked schedule shows the King of All Media, who’s raking in an estimated $80 million per year at Sirius XM, switching to a 3-day per week schedule permanently.
