(CBS) NEW YORK WCBSTV.com has learned that Howard Stern has been suspended from his popular morning show for plugging his new satellite radio venture.
This comes two months before Stern's popular radio show moves to Sirius Satellite Radio from "free" radio in January.
Sirius confirms that Stern has been suspended without pay for Tuesday's program. Infinity Radio, the company that Stern works for now, has not commented on this report. Infinity is owned by Viacom, the same company that owns CBS 2 and WCBSTV.com.
On October 25, Infinity Broadcasting, finally revealing its plans to replace the self-proclaimed "King of All Media," announced a new morning drive time lineup Tuesday of assorted hosts for its 27 soon-to-be former Stern stations. Rather than turning to a single replacement, Infinity offered a variety of names for different markets.
The biggest belonged to ex-Van Halen front man Roth and comedian Carolla. Roth, who appeared Tuesday morning on Stern's nationally syndicated show to announced the move, 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.
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).
The In Demand Networks, which provides video-on-demand content to cable television companies will carry the televised version of Stern's show that had been shown for 11 years on the E! Entertainment network.
The In Demand show will contain edited highlights of his radio program, available in the evening the day after it originally aired. Unlike E!, it will be uncensored, In Demand spokesman Eric Duncan said.
Interested viewers can get the show by subscribing to it. The subscription fee hasn't been set, Duncan said.
In Demand is currently available in about 15 million of the nation's 110 million homes with television, and is expected to grow by about five million per year.

I was just wondering what do you guys think about Stern? I actually enjoy listening to him but know there are many who are offended.
Stern doesn't offend me per se, but I don't share his juvenile obsession with tits and ass. It gets boring after a while.
I love Howard. However, that's the reason I couldn't watch the E show. It was mainly cuts of the T and A segments. His radio shows consists of tons more than low IQ strippers and whores competing for breast implants. I've been waking up with him for years. He's easily the best celeb interviewer on the planet. And by all accounts in person he's one of the nicest guys you could meet. I'll throw this old clunky radio in the trash after Dec. cause the only time I ever listen is when he's on in the mornings. I already listen to cable and satellite stations when I want to hear music...or make my own CD's. They really are shooting themselves in the foot by letting him get away IMO.

Love him love him love him love him!! And miss him terribly since being taken off the market in my area. And for them to 'suspend' him for one day is only making it worse for commerical radio as it's bringing MORE attention to the reason he is leaving in the first place, AND it's promoting Sirius as well! DUH.
I don't watch the E! show either, as it is so not a good representation of what his show truly is---whoever said that his radio show is so much more is absolutely right. Fred w/the sound effects and Arties stories, and Robin doing the news. And just the banter between them all....
Go get em Howard! Can't wait to listen again!
