Stern Laughs Off Analogue Return Rumours

Shock jock HOWARD STERN has turned down a "major deal" to return to analogue radio, because he is disgusted by the format's censorship laws. The controversial radio star was fined repeatedly for the inappropriate nature of his show during an ongoing battle with the Federal Complaints Commission (FCC) - and finally decided to move to Sirius Satellite Radio earlier this year (06), over which the FCC has no power. Stern, who is five months into his five-year $500 million (GBP277 million) contract, says, "I'm very flattered terrestrial radio can't let go of me. But I would throw up if I had to go back. I'm never going back. "The story is I wouldn't do it (terrestrial radio) for any reason. Not for money. I left because I couldn't stand the censorship. I couldn't stand the Federal Communications Commission. "I've never been happier. We're flying high and doing great."
