Stern Determined To Return To The Glory Days

Radio mogul HOWARD STERN can't wait to start his new show as a satellite DJ for US network Sirius next year (06) because he fears he's been "doing sub-par broadcasts" for the past decade.

The shock jock will leave his Infinity show at the end of 2005 to front a new uncensored satellite show, which he's convinced will bring back the glory days of The Howard Stern Show.

Stern is moving over to Sirius after various confrontations with radio bosses and America's Federal Communications Commission over his alleged indecent broadcasts.

He says, "I've become increasingly frustrated over the years. For the last 10 years I've been doing sub-par broadcasts, I'm the first to admit it.

"When I got into the business, I was very excited about it. I wanted to break new ground, go into places that no broadcaster had gone before and I was able to do it and then the FCC got involved, the government got involved, the religious right got involved."

Stern is convinced he became a target for those out to clean up the airwaves: "I think I was the biggest in the business and they said, `Let's get Stern, and that way all the broadcasters will get in line.'

"What happened was the erosion of my programme. My programme became, in my mind, less than what I could do and now that I'm going to Sirius Satellite, I will return to the greatness that is The Howard Stern Show."
