Are Gary, Robin, or Fred even capable of writing a tell-all book? Seriously, they have all hollowed out so much of their souls for Howard. It's why they have burning resentment for Jackie and Suttering John. Those two had the balls to stand up to Wiggy and leave. Any subsequent discussion of those two on the air is a constant reminder to Gary, Robin, and Fred that each is a sell out.
Each of the three is likely paid much more than they could get anywhere else in radio. Though you can bet Wiggy has made sure none is compensated enough yet to live in luxury for the rest of their lives. Wiggy probably uses the implied promise of additional payoff when he retires as a tool to further keep them under his control.
After years of suppressing their true feelings and constantly taking shit from a blow-hard phoney, you have to wonder if their demented minds could still issue forth any important truths about Wiggy and also make it a coherent story.

I always felt this way unless the publisher got the rights on spec. But I can see a "block party" format where tickets are sold for an honest q&a with some of the staffers or a magazine article or even a podcast for sale.
