Howard Stern coming to iTunes?

News, Rumors

MacDailyNews relays a somewhat sketchy rumor:

“Could Apple be planning on signing a deal with legendary radio shock jock Howard Stern to exclusively host a new iTunes show?,” John Brownlee reports for Cult of Mac. “That’s the rumor amongst Sirius investors, and it’s food for thought, if not terribly likely.”

“According to the rumor, Howard Stern is about to sign a contract with Apple for $600 million over three years to host a new internet show over iTunes,” Brownlee reports. “The move doesn’t make much sense on its own, but if Apple is intending on making a serious push into online radio or television, via iTunes, AirPlay and AppleTV, it makes at least some sense.”

Brownlee reports, “The problem with this rumor though is Apple’s own standards of decency.”

That’s a huge problem, though you won’t find the iTunes Store lacking for explicit content. HBO’s OZ anyone?
