Howard Stern Will Stay At Sirius XM For 5 More Years

Howard Stern has struck a deal to stay at Sirius XM for another five years.

But now, both parties have reached a deal to keep Stern on the station until 2020. It also included a 12-year licensing agreement for Stern's entire career catalog and vague plans for a video platform. (Video via ABC / "Jimmy Kimmel Live!")

The financial details of the deal weren't announced, but some analysts estimate Stern's salary will be about $90 million a year; that's up from previous estimates of $80 million.

That sounds like a lot of cash, but if Sirius XM lost Stern, it could also mean about $240 million in lost revenue.
