Boss: Stern Will Stay On Air

Howard Stern, who has been telling listeners for months that he probably wouldn’t be on the air much longer because of an FCC crackdown on content, has got a vote of confidence from his bosses, who say they’ll keep him on. “Stern’s syndicated show was dropped by six stations in February for indecency. But his audience figures went up between January and March in the three biggest US markets – New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Stern had blamed his show being dropped on a conservative backlash.”
