News: Howard Stern gets hit with a massive lawsuit
Howard Stern is being sued by former employer CBS for promoting his upcoming Sirius show on the air. Stern was proportedly warned to cut it out, but kept on it in his trademark style.
The CBS suit claims Stern "repeatedly and willfully breached his written contract with CBS Radio over the last 22 months of that contract, misappropriated millions of dollars worth of CBS Radio airtime for his own financial benefit, and fraudulently concealed his interest in hundreds of millions of dollars of Sirius stock while promoting it on the air."
By touting his move from terrestrial radio, the suit contends, Stern essentially gave Sirius free ad time on his CBS syndicated show this, despite being on orders from CBS suits to tone down the Sirius plugs. Stern says it’s personal and that he disclosed details of his new contract to CBS.
