Sirius XM: Is Howard Stern Moving to American Idol?
Could Howard Stern be the next Simon Cowell?
The New York Post reports that the producers of American Idol are eager to hire Stern for the show. The Page Six item says that Stern is the show’s top choice to take over from Cowell, who will leave the show at the end of the current season. Stern’s current contract with Sirius XM (SIRI) expires in January 2011.
An excerpt from the Post:
A source connected to “Idol” said, “It’s one of the few shows that could compete with Stern’s $100 million-a-year Sirius contract, and ‘Idol’ bosses think he’d be even nastier than Simon.
