Taking the Tour to CBS

Howard read an article in today's New York Post that states his replacement at KROCK, David Lee Roth, has been advised to make his show more like Howard's.

According to the article, Howard said that David has been told to conform his show to 35-year-old white males who listen to Lynyrd Skynyrd and that he'll soon be getting a woman co-host who will read the news.

However, Howard noted that David's response to the second announcement was that his program will be getting its own Robin Quivers. Howard again commented that David will need at least a year in order to get an audience and that it's too early in his radio career to accurately judge his performance in the ratings. Artie then brought up that he read Howard will be on "Late Show with David Letterman" on Monday. Howard acknowledged that the report is true, but that he didn't want to discuss the topic until tomorrow.

However, Howard did say that the plan to be on "Late Show" is a masterpiece, because CBS will have to either cancel his appearance or let him on one of its programs, even though the heads of the company are suing him.
