Robin Quivers, Howard Stern's longtime sidekick considering new gig, report says
Robin Quivers, who has been raunchy talk show host Howard Sterns' sidekick for 30-years is reportedly thinking about leaving "The Howard Stern Show" to do her own TV show.
"I love to do radio and television and I've always wanted my own television show, so I've been putting out feelers for those kinds of things" Quivers told Radar Online. "(I could) express myself in ways that I don't necessarily get to express myself on our show."
Quivers, 58, told the entertainment site that she would love to have her own talk show.
"It will be like a talk show, but with subjects that I'd be interested in," Quivers said. "I think I have some interesting things to say and I don't think anybody out there is saying them."
Stern's radio show airs on Sirius XM satellite radio and in March, the shock jock sued Sirius over a stock options agreement.
In December, Stern signed a new 5-year deal with Sirius XM, which agreed to continue to broadcast his show and other programs on his Howard 100 and Howard 101 channels until the end of 2015.
Quivers joined Stern as his co-host in 1981 after working as a news reporter in Baltimore, MD. Stern's show also features regular commentators Baba Booey and Bubba the Love Sponge. It is known for its explicit content, swearing and interviews with major international celebrities as well as porn stars.
Stern has a reputation for getting celebrities to open up about personal details. In December, David Arquette did an interview with Stern where he over-shared about his separation from Courteney Cox. Last week, Jesse James told the host that his fiancé Kat Von D was a superior lover than his ex-wife Sandra Bullock.
Stern has been a radio host since the 1970s and his show has aired on television. He moved to satellite radio in 2006 following a dispute with terrestrial radio stations that had carried his syndicated show over alleged indecent programming, which led to Federal Communications Commission fines of $2.5 million.
Moments from his career and beef with the FCC and his then-boss were showcased in the 1997 comedy film "Private Parts".
Stern has not disclosed his new salary that was promised in his new deal. His previous 5-year agreement had promised him $500 million.
