Put another nail in the coffin of terrestrial radio and this time make it a nine-inch nail. Howard Stern, the self-proclaimed “King of All Media,” is moving to a different media – Sirius Satellite Radio – when his contract expires with Infinity Broadcasting. The move comes as Stern is under renewed attack from Michael Powell and the FCC for “indecency” violations. Clear Channel, which syndicated Stern in a number of markets including Florida, quickly dropped Stern from their morning lineups upon pressure from the government. Another factor in Stern’s move is the departure of Infinity boss Mel Karamzin, who was an outspoken protector of Stern’s freedom of speech to audiences ranging from the FCC to Congress.

Competitor Sirius also airs major market First Traffic reports.

Satellite radio is quickly becoming the hot feature in new cars and many audio/video components. With about 1,000,000 subscribers for Sirius and over 2,000,000 for XM, there is no question that consumers are starting to vote with their wallets, proving they will pay a nominal fee for musical entertainment that is much better than what traditional radio companies are broadcasting on your local FM and AM stations.

Media giant Viacom (Paramount, MTV, Infinity) announced today that their highly touted radio executive, Mel Karmazin would be leaving the company. Rumors have surfaced that he is in line to replace the embattled Michael Eisner at Disney yet The Happiest Company On Earth says that they are confident in their current leadership. Karmazin merged his Infinity Broadcasting into Viacom but has been involved in an ego-driven war with Viacom chairman, Sumner Redstone for some time now thus Karmazin’s exit is not completely out of the blue.
