Referencing a conversation from yesterday's Wrap-Up Show, Howard asked why Steve Brandano felt entitled to any inside knowledge of his Sirius XM contract negotiations: "When did you become such an involved player?"
Steve came in to explain that he thought people might be holding out on him: "Jason said something to me that was cryptic and weird...so then I start going, 'Does Jason know?'"
Howard told Steve not to worry: "You should be happy if the show goes away. You're gonna double your salary anywhere [else]."
That said, Howard understood why the staff wasn't pursuing more lucrative employment elsewhere: "Nobody wants to go do a job they hate."
