Howard said he'd looked back at his comments on Larry King and decided he understood Larry's motivation:
"Broadcasters hate me. They're so jealous of my ability...Larry King doesn't have any kind of following. He doesn't have an idea how I do it...So then [other broadcasters] go, 'Oh, all he does is use dirty words. That's why people listen'...[but] there isn't an award I don't deserve. I took this shit medium and made something out of it."
