HOWARD STERN RE-UPS
WITH INFINITY

Millions Wait For Stern To Tell Them
What They Should Think About It
After threatening that today's show might be his last, Howard Stern, the man behind "Fartman," "Private Parts"—the movie and book—and other such genius, has signed a five-year pact with Infinity Broadcasting. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, though CNBC reported that Stern was offered $18 million a year, compared with his current deal of $12 million per year. Stern has been with Infinity since 1985.

The self-dubbed "King of All Media" closed the deal before leaving on a three-week vacation. His show, broadcast from WXRK, is heard on 54 stations.

Infinity, the largest radio broadcaster in the country, will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Viacom when the merger between the two closes the second week of January. There are no plans to start simulcasting his show on Nickelodeon.
