Imitators who came along after Howard Stern and tried to copy the format... same as Bubba the Love Sponge and Madcow... ridiculous copiers with little to no talent or innovation skills. Who cares if he makes it to the Radio Hall of Fame or whatever... Do you think that really matters? Maybe for personal accomplishment, but ask the average person to name one person honored by that establishment... ummmm??? Yeah, that's the answer you'll get. It matters on what he does for media and the people that watch him. We're not talking about Howard Stern, the radio pioneer, we're talking about why he is valued on radio and television. It is because he produces and people watch to see what it is he's going to produce. Paul Harvey is a washed up current events commentator who likes selling Metamucil and Citracal. I mean, is there really anything more demeaning than trying to sell otc drugs to a geriatric audience? I guess it depends on your age group.
