Nope, it's not an April's Fools joke. It seems like 'The King of all media' has lost his throne.

It was indeed shocking for all people in the NY metro to tune in to 92.3 and hearing that Howard Stern was just cancelled in his home city.

Instead Infiniti Broadcasting decided to put on something that people never expected to hear... Top 40 pop music. Hard to believe since 92.3 is a hard rock/alternative station. So now Howard's spot has been taken over by a bunch of boring DJs, who are now forced to use a lame tagline called... FUN WITHOUT THE FILTH. Although it bothers me that Howard Stern was cancelled, what annoys me the most is that they went from one extreme to the other.

You guys should have heard all those New Yorker tough wiseguys who used to listen Howard Stern, calling the new DJs to curse them out and tell them how much they suck.

It might be a joke, but with all the fuss going on it might not.

However, listening top 40 Pop & R&B at a Hard Rock/Alternative radio station might truly make me beleive that it was just a joke.

Thank GODDD that's only an April Fool's joke! My mom heard it on the radio. If she didn't get her daily listening of Howard Stern, she'd go NUTS.

Howard Stern's been pulled just about everywhere else, though.

Yeah Howard Stern is VERY funny-- when I miss the bus and my mom has to drive me to school, she'll put Howard Stern on and he's just a psychopath. Some of the stuff he does is like WHOAAA but I love how he has a countdown to the Olsen Twin's birthday because that's when they're legal.

hahaha

Well, what bothers me is WHY he's being kicked off.

Howard, along with what seems like 837,524 other people, read Al Franken's "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them" and decided that he would never support Bush again. He started blasting Bush on the radio, as opposed to kissing his ass like he had done previously.

So Clear Channel yanked him.

This is where our parents are these days. Allowing children to listen to that trash.


They are free to do what they want. Besides, just about every single kid (even under 13) has heard or taken part on adult themed conversations, which are just about as explicit as any other subject that Howard Stern talks about on his radio show.
There's no escape from taboo subjects, so it's up to parents to properly inform their kids about what is right and what is wrong before they get misleaded by either their friends or the media.

If that's the way you want to raise your kids, I suggest you to home school your kids, prohibit them to listen, hear, or read pretty much every single form of media, and by the time they turn 18 send them to Bob Jones University.

Simple solution for those who see Howard Stern as a problem:

Every radio has two knobs - try using one of them.
