Howard Stern – After spending decades on terrestrial radio, Stern joined celestial radio station Sirius Radio in January 2006 and immediately lost a couple of zillion listeners, while keeping some millions of hardcore listeners. The net effect was Stern stopped mattering all that much. Until 2012, when Stern joined the judges at “America’s Got Talent”, regained his audience and became a mainstream TV star as well. Now he has a mass audience here and with his Lady Gaga interview last Monday got everybody else at the same time.
