Artie Lange NOT To Be Fired From Howard Stern Show


According to Perez Hilton, Artie Lange will be fired from the Howard Stern show when he returns but according to Tim Sabean on air, he said they are waiting Artie’s return to the show.

Artie has been away from the Stern show since mid December and was hospitalized over the holidays due to a suicide attempt. He has since been released from the hospital but has not returned to the Stern show as of yet.

According to Perez Hilton:

Sources tell us there are whispers that Sirius XM is going to let Artie Lange go, but they’re waiting until he’s in stable condition to break the news to him.

We’re also told that Sirius XM CEO Mel Karmazin has already informed host Howard Stern about the news.

Tim Sabean, the senior vice president of the Howard Stern channels said this on air:

Artie is very much a part of these channels, and we look forward to Artie’s fast recovery and we wish him all the best.

Artie Lange Arrested For DUI

Artie Lange Arrested For DUI


As reported by TMZ, Artie Lange from The Howard Stern Show was arrested on July 10th for suspicion of DUI after getting into a minor car accident.

On the Stern show yesterday, Artie said he blew a 0.0 on his Breathalyzer and passed every test the officer gave him — he said he doesn’t know what part he failed.

Artie said that when he’s able to talk about this, he’s got a lot to say about it. He said it’s going to be a complicated thing.

Update: According to a listener, Artie’s comment was said sarcastically so there is likely not much to this story at all.

Update (July 14th): Artie pleads not guilty to DUI according to TMZ.

HBO Sports Chief Apologizes For Artie Lange’s Language

HBO Sports Chief Apologizes For Artie Lange’s Language


As reported by newsday.com:

The chief of HBO Sports on Tuesday apologized for a series of profanities uttered by comic Artie Lange during the launch of new sports talk show anchored by Joe Buck Monday night. Meanwhile, Lange insisted during another outburst on Howard Stern’s Sirius-XM radio show Tuesday that HBO had urged him to go “nuts.”

A clip of Artie’s response from the Howard Stern show in MP3 format is here.

newsday.com quote continued:

Lange – also a regular on the “Late Show with David Letterman” and other late night talk shows – couldn’t be reached Tuesday, but in an interview, HBO Sports president Ross Greenburg said, “I would say I’m sorry to anyone across America who had kids and were watching what they thought was a good and honest sports show that turned into gutter language.”

He added: “This isn’t indicative of the kind of product the [HBO] sports department sends out over the airwaves.”

The segment occurred at the end of the pilot edition of “Joe Buck Live.” Buck, one of TV’s best-known football and baseball broadcasters, was conducting cross-talk with other comics on the set, Paul Rudd and Jason Sudeikis, when Lange made a handful of homophobic cracks and uttered expletives. When the show ended at 10 p.m., the comic panel continued online until Greenburg finally pulled the plug at about 10:07. The HBO executive later told USA Today that Lange’s comments “bordered on bad taste” – a generous understatement – which prompted another outburst from Lange on Stern’s show: “Ross Greenburg, you –, you came up to me and you said if Paul and Jason get boring, you go nuts. That’s what I did.”

Greenburg said Tuesday, “He’s got a little misinterpretation of what I said. Prior to the show I saw him out in the hall and said, ‘Look if you sense a lack of energy up there, I need your energy.’

“The whole episode was regrettable,” Greenburg said. “He should never have been booked. We took a risk.”

Here is Artie calling into Chris “Mad Dog” Russo on Siruis XM:

Here is the original Joe Buck show with Artie:

Response from Joe Buck via Twitter:

Artie did what he thought we wanted. A bit too far? Sure. But its LIVE. And fun!! Glad I am at HBO!!

Update (June 19th): The HowardTV guys sent along this clip from the Howard Stern Show:
