Howard Stern Insulted By Late Night Rumor

king of all mediaHoward Stern says he feels insulted by NY Post’s article which mentioned him taking over Jimmy Fallon’s late night gig on NBC. A New York Post report claimed that NBC executives were “grooming” Stern for the 12:30am time slot, if Fallon was to take over The Tonight Show from Jay Leno in 2014.

However, Stern being the highest paid entertainer in radio didn’t find the rumor amusing. “First of all, what an insult. Like, all the years of my career. I’m like, the biggest guy in radio. I’ve done film. I’ve done television. I mean, they act like I’m some kind of fucking beginner or something. Maybe if I’m really nice to NBC they’ll let me take over Carson Daly’s show at like 2 o’clock in the morning.”

Radio jock Howard Stern is accusing late-night host Jay Leno of stealing his skits, more specifically a skit involving NFL commentator Terry Bradshaw and a chicken that predicts football team winners for the week. “This must be a giant ‘Punk’d’ on me,” Stern said on his radio show, ‘The Howard Stern Show,” last week. “This guy’s ripped off, like, 10 major things from my show. But the chicken thing we did for years. Stern even sent a copy of his chicken skit to “The Jay Leno Show.” The Leno camp has yet to respond.
