Sam Tripoli, the third I Want To Be Howard Stern finalist, stopped by with his co-host, Nader, to discuss their plans for tonight’s test show (7pm ET on Howard 101). Sam said they actually started on XM radio’s old National Lampoon channel, and they’ll be doing a version of that show, “Hollywood Report,” this evening with the help of a secret celebrity guest. Sam also joked about their unsuccessful stand-up careers and chances at winning the contest: “Do you guys take bribes? He’s Persian and I’m Armenian, so we’re [used] to negotiating.”
