Stern Options: Howard's replacements named
With the King of All Media leaving for Satellite Radio in 2006, Infinity Broadcasting Corp. named Howard Stern's replacements Tuesday...here is how they break down:
1. David Lee Roth:
Ex-Van Halen front man David Lee Roth, who who appeared Tuesday morning on Stern's nationally syndicated show to announced the move, and comedian Carolla will start in January on WXRK-FM in New York, WBCN-FM in Boston, WYSP-FM in Philadelphia, WRKZ-FM in Pittsburgh, WNCX-FM in Cleveland, WPBZ-FM in West Palm Beach, Fla., and KLLI-FM in Dallas.
2. Adam Carolla (on right with fellow overachiever Jimmy Kimmel):
Adam Carolla, known for his comedy work on "The Man Show'' and "Loveline,'' takes over on the Infinity stations in Los Angeles (KLSX-FM), San Diego (KPLN-FM), Phoenix (KZON-FM), Portland (KUFO-FM) and Las Vegas (KXTE-FM).
3. CNN News Radio:
A dozen other Infinity stations will replace Stern with anything from talk radio to Tim Warner Inc.'s CNN Radio News.
Infinity stations in Sacramento, Buffalo, N.Y., and Fresno, Calif., will replace Stern by switching to the "Jack'' format, which features expanded play lists of hundreds of songs but includes no disc jockeys.
UB guesses in the end there is just no replacing the "King".
The King is dead, long live the King...
